Lenovo’s New Yoga Tablet 2 Pro Has a Built-in Projector
Lenovo has launched a new tablet in its Yoga series, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro. It is a 13-inch tablet that the company created with special inputs from Ashton Kutcher, who joined Lenovo’s ranks as a product engineer last year.
The company said that the tablet has been designed specifically for digitally-hungry consumers. Well, that explains its standout feature: a built-in pico projector.
The 13-inch device offers all the usual features you might expect from a high-end tablet computer: An advanced edition of the Android operating system, a high-speed processor, and high-quality camera. According to the company, Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is able to project a 16:9 image onto any surface for an instant 50-inch theater experience that lasts for up to three hours on full charge.

It runs on a fourth-generation Intel Atom processor and Android 4.4 KitKat. It comes with 32GB of storage and supports up to 64GB through microSD, houses an 8-megapixel camera, and can optionally be purchased with 4G connectivity.
The company said that when not being used as a projector, the tablet has 15 hours of battery life. The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro will cost $499, while the 8-inch Android version of the Tablet 2 will be priced at $249. The 10-inch Android tablet and the 8-inch Windows 8 slate will both cost $299.
