Lenovo Yoga Tablet – Stylish Innovation in Design

      Smartphones were a craze before a couple of years. It’s now the tablets which are gearing up with lot of technologies and applications. We already have a lot of manufactures with their own model giving great flexibility in use. Lenovo, Apple, LG, Samsung, Nokia, Sony, Dell, Microsoft are some of the top players in the field of tablets. Irrespective of the manufacturer, most of the tablets have same block design. All the companies of-course develop their tablets with great technical specification. But, is technical specification is alone enough to buy a tablet? NO! There are other features in design and usability should be considered which I think is most important to use the tablet in everyday life.

      Do we have such tablet which gives great ease of usability in hand and also multipurpose? Yes!!! Lenovo has come up with its new Yoga Tablet which has its own unique design and gives a lot additional functionality other than good hardware specification. Hardware specification is something which is given by all the manufacturers. But Lenovo Yoga Tablet gives us a way to use it in various modes which makes it easy to use in various environments.

How Tablets Will Be Useful For Everyday Life

      We all know about the usage and applications in the field of entertainment (Gaming, Videos, Movies, Songs etc). News application are another applications which most of us use. Apart from general applications, let us see some of the other application that will be useful in daily activity. Below are some of the categories which I have explained in detail.

Tablets in Education

      There are many educational application for students from lower level to higher level. There are applications even for college level students. Example of some applications are Maths Formulae, Quiz, General Knowledge, Dictionary(various languages),  Scientific Calculator, Bank Exam Apps, IAS Exam Apps, CAT Exam Apps etc. There are also mobile compilers for programming languages like C, C++ and Java which are useful for higher grade students. Tablets also serve as e-book reader. There are a lot of e-books in the internet and also Google and Apple has its own separate division for e-book which are available in Google Play and Apple’s App Store. The applications which I have specified is very negligible compared to the applications present in the internet.

      Yoga Tablet in particular can be placed in stand mode in tables of the classrooms which helps the students to use the tablet in easier way rather than using the tablet keeping in hand. Even for corporate people or working employees,they get a feel as if they are working with a laptop when using the wireless Bluetooth accessory.

 

Tablets in Corporate Companies

      People working in corporate have various task to be accomplished in a single day which can be done by tablets. Some of the common tasks are Email, SMS, Presentations and many more. Tablets are not only useful for corporate people, but are also useful to almost wide range of industry. People in the field of architecture can show demo of their 3D designs to their clients, People in the field of electronics can simulate the circuits or working demo etc. There are CAD (Computer Aided Design) applications for tablets which will be very  much useful people in manufacturing industry. People in Media can use mobile Photoshop application for doing designs. Google Docs gives another added advantage to create and maintain documents. There are a lot of other applications which can be used in companies.

      The Bluetooth keyboard accessory for Yoga tablet is one of the greatest advantage for working professionals.

 

Tablets for Travelers

      Tablets are very much useful for traveller. There are many applications which uses GPS which makes it to use even in vehicles(cars, bikes etc) for finding routes and navigation. The applications help in finding the route with minimum distance and we can also know approximate time for the travel.

 

Tablets for Communication (SMS & Calls)

      We spent a lot of money in sending messages and phone calls. This can be reduced by subscribing to an internet pack which enable us to make calls and send SMS over the internet. Cheap internet packs are very much useful for message applications such as WhatsApp, Viber, Google Talk etc. However higher cost internet which has higher internet connection speed can be used for making phone calls and even video calls are possible with the current 3G and 4G technology.

 

Tablets for Health Benefits

      There are a lot of applications that helps in monitoring the health and fitness.Some apps helps in delivering information about the benefits of particular food and ingredients. There are also apps  that guides with information for doing exercise, yoga etc. Since tablets are very much used by young aged people and children, such health and related applications benefit a lot in getting to know about healthy food habits during younger age itself. There are additional health related accessory for tablets which helps to monitor heart rate, blood pressure etc.

      Thus tablets are used in wide variety of applications. You can make your daily task to go in easier way with tablets, particularly with Lenovo Yoga Tablet. Lenovo Yoga gives us more comfort in terms of handling and the way how we use it. Most of the application demand high battery power and I think Lenovo Yoga is the only tablet to deliver 18 hours of battery life.

We are moving towards next generation in technology. So I think some of the additional features could have made the tablet even more better. One such feather is Full HD Display which gives stunning visual appearance for its 8″ and 10″ display. Gorilla Glass is another feature which could have added to Yoga Tablet. Below I have mentioned some of the must have features for future tablets or the features that an ideal tablet should have.

 

Must Have Features For A Ideal Tablets (Future Tablets)
  • Full HD Display
  • Gorilla Glass
  • DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct
  • Full-HD (1080p) Video Recording (atleast HD (720p) Video Recording)
  • Radio
  • Video Out

      There are other features like Wireless Charging, Air Gestures, IR Blaster for Remote Control which adds up more cost for development.
