A Bluetooth keyboard is a must if you want to turn your tablet into a business machine. But it's hard to type if your tablet won't stand up. Sure, you can buy a special case with a kickstand, but why not spring for a tablet with a built-in kickstand instead? The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is a premium, 10-inch Android tablet with a super-sharp display, long battery life and a uniquely functional design that makes it a good pick for productivity-minded users. Get a hands-on look at the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ at our sister site, Laptop Mag, then read on for three features that make this device ready for work.
Unlike most other slates, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ doesn't have to lay flat. Just pivot the built-in kickstand to make it stand up — no bulky folio necessary. Lenovo's tablet can take two different positions, in addition to the standard landscape and portrait modes. Those positions include "stand" mode, which is perfect for typing sessions, as well as presentations and media viewing. Meanwhile, "tilt" mode makes for a good reading position; the tablet lies nearly flat, propped up slightly using the kickstand.
Long battery life
The first iteration of the Yoga Tablet 10 stood out for its long battery life, lasting 11 hours and 17 minutes in a test that involved continuous Web browsing over WiFi. The new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ features that same 9,000 mAh battery, so buyers can expect similar endurance. That's a plus for business users, who rely on their mobile devices to stay connected and productive when away from the office.
The original Yoga Tablet 10 was a solid slate, but that edition's low-res, 12800 x 800 display was lacking compared to competing 10-inch tablets. Lenovo remedied that problem with this update. The new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ packs a sharp, 1900 x 1200 screen that's brighter and more colorful than its predecessor.
