Lenovo got famous for its Yoga line-up of devices, emphasizing portability, versatility and mobility in their design and features. The Lenovo Yoga line-up has many different members, ones with projectors, ones with watch hinges, flexible kickstands and new input methods with the Lenovo DoIt app suite. But the company is not stopping here as IFA is the best opportunity to show off new gadgets and new devices. As IFA Berlin 2015 comes to a close today, Lenovo can be proud to have launched yet another enterprise device that is easy to port into the non-enterprise industry as well, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro.
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro brings together features from the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and the rest of the company’s tablet line-up in order to create an all-in-one device suitable for enterprise, office, learning and entertainment environments. The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro price is set at $500 for the United States market and a bit higher for the European market, a price which seems rather high for a tablet, in my opinion. Nonetheless, once you get a chance to look over the specs and features that the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has to offer, you will feel much more convinced to splurge than you would expect.
The company is targeting the enterprise community most with the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro, as it encompasses features that cater to that niche of people. The tablet is a premium device with a metal chassis and an ergonomic design for easy one-handed use and contains a built-in projector in the spine of the device. As usual, the device comes outfitted with a flexible kickstand that lets people use the tablet in whatever position suits them best. With the massive projector that can project a 70 inch screen at a 5 meter distance, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro can be the ultimate presentation accessory, not just for the office.
When it comes to the learning environment, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro presents benefits, here too, although its price is well out of the range of schools and students generally. Nonetheless, it does show off a trend that will soon migrate into the learning environment: team work with a projector. Working together on a project is much easier if there’s a projector available, and since the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has that as well as a complete Android operating system, it’s an excellent versatile device for any type of environment. Still, it’s best for enterprise.
Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro features include a massive 10-inch QHD display which is as bright as daylight and has great outdoor visibility as well as viewing angles. The entertainment center aura of the device wouldn’t be complete without a surround sound front-facing speaker combo, wouldn’t it? Decidedly premium, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro can easily become a family favorite as it is easy to use and versatile. You can hang it, use it as a laptop, as a tablet, on your lap or in whatever else position you want to.
Some say tablets are soon going to be outdated and forgotten, but Lenovo demonstrates the contrary with their new device. Having a projector built-in and surround sound as well is not only convenient, but pleasurable and cost-efficient. Instead of investing in a TV and a surround system, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro can do everything at once, with the convenience of portability. You can’t beat that! Although it won’t offer the same high-res experience as a TV entertainment system would, it’s excellent for a makeshift home cinema.
The tablet is as versatile as it is powerful, seeing as Lenovo uses an Intel Atom chipset backed by 2 GB RAM. A massive 10200 mAh battery provides the juice for the tablet and with that battery, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro should be a champ at battery life. We will put that to the test as soon as we get the opportunity however. In addition to the awesome projector (which works best if in dark) the tablet also comes with a 13 MP camera, which will definitely come in handy. Android 5.1 Lollipop is on board the device, which is unfortunate from a certain point of view, as Windows 10 would have been a more suitable choice given the target audience of the device.
In any case, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is a versatile device which blends affordability, convenience and performance into one single enterprise-oriented device. While its main orientation does involve presentations and formal occasions, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro can still function as a family entertainment system or as a simple daily driving tablet for those who still enjoy using tablets over smartphones or notebooks. Bang for buck is pretty admirable and features are unique indeed, all of this making the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro an interesting and worthwhile device.
