IFA: Lenovo Expands Multimode Family with New Yoga Convertibles and Flex Dual Mode Devices


Lenovo today announced at the 2013 IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, an expansion to its portfolio of multimode devices. The new lineup starts with two new Yoga convertibles: the Yoga 2 Pro, successor to the original 360 flip and fold 13.3-inch Yoga, and the new ThinkPad Yoga.

Additionally, Lenovo is bringing multimode computing to mainstream laptops and desktops with the new dual mode Lenovo Flex 14 and 15-inch laptops and Flex 20 all-in-one (AIO) desktop.

Yoga 2 Pro

The Yoga 2 Pro has a 13.3-inch QHD+ super high resolution display (3200X1800). The 350-nit screen features IPS 178 wide viewing angle.

Thinner and lighter than before at 15.5 mm thin and 1.39 kg, the extra mobile Yoga 2 Pro lets users enjoy computing in each of its four modes: laptop, tablet, stand and tent. Yoga 2 Pro also features choices of up to Intel 4th generation Core i7 ULT processors, Windows 8.1, up to 512 GB SSD, Intel WiDi for streaming content wirelessly to a TV, Dolby Home Theatre v4 and up to nine hours of battery life. It also features a new backlit keyboard. The recently introduced Yoga 11S will also be adding choices of up to 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors.



A full-function laptop and tablet, Yoga 2 Pro infuses new smart features including Yoga Picks, a tool that suggests suitable apps based upon the device?s mode, custom apps and voice control. For example, in tablet mode, Yoga Picks suggests apps like Birizzle, a popular touch game, and Zinio, an e-reader. In tent mode, it offers the painting app, Fresh Paint and Rara music streaming. Additionally, Yoga 2 Pro comes with apps created especially for its four modes. In laptop mode, Phone Companion lets users copy content from documents or websites/pages and send the information to their phones as a text message. Yoga Photo Touch allows users in tablet mode to edit or retouch photos using their fingers on the 10-point multitouch screen. Built for stand mode, Yoga Camera Man lets users take photos with effects like lomo, 4-in-1, macro, GIF and more to photos, and Yoga Chef in tent mode taps into Yoga 2 Pro?s motion control and voice control to advance recipes from cooking apps.

ThinkPad Yoga

While borrowing Yoga's flip and fold, four mode design, the ThinkPad Yoga creates its own space for business users. The 12.5-inch magnesium alloy ThinkPad Yoga is available with choices of a Corning Gorilla Glass HD IPS or a FHD IPS display (optional digitizer and pen available for the FHD display) running Windows 8.1.



The ThinkPad Yoga features a lift and lock system created for tablet mode. The system automatically lifts and locks the keys on the machine's keyboard in place for a streamlined feel. Additionally, ThinkPad Yoga features the ThinkPad keyboard with optional backlit models and models with Near Field Communications (NFC).

Lenovo offers choices of up to Intel 4th generation Core i7 processors and up to 1 TB of storage. It also responds to voice input so users can chat on Instant Messaging programs, play their music, search the web and more without lifting a finger.

Flex 14 and 15

The dual-mode Flex 14.1-inch and 15.6-inch laptops flip 300 for stand mode, a new way to interact with a PC and positions the device closer to the user. Users can open Lenovo?s custom YouCam program, say "1,2,3 cheese" to snap a webcam photo and then send it to a friend using Flex?s voice commands. Or they can enjoy cinematic quality sound with Flex's Dolby Advanced Audio v2 without a keyboard in the way or even watch high definition content on another screen via Flex's HDMI-out connection.

The interior contains a keyboard with optional backlighting. Flex comes with either a 1366X768 or optional Full HD 1920X1080 displays, 10-point multitouch, up to nine hours battery life, up to Intel 4th generation Core ULT i7 processors, up to Nvidia discrete GT 740M graphics3, up to 1 TB of storage and optional SSD or NAND flash.

Flex 20 AIO

Framed in a 20.5mm aluminum shell, the compact Flex 20 has a 19.5-inch frameless HD (1600X900) IPS 90 tilt display, 500 GB HD or SSHD storage and up to Intel Core i7 processors.

However, Flex 20 can be converted from stand to table mode. When flat in table mode, the Aura interface opens for a multi-game, multi-player experience. In this mode, users can challenge others to play games, including preloaded ones like Ubisoft?s Raiding Company, those available for purchase from the Lenovo App Store powered by Intel App Up and newly created custom Lenovo games including Omnitapps Media Puzzle Pack for making fun video puzzles and Omnitapps Educational Suite with a series of memory and learning games along with other Lenovo games like Fishing Joy, Air Hockey and Roulette.

The dual mode Flex 20 provides even more entertainment value with its special physical accessories (sold separately) - joysticks, strikers and e-dice ? that allow up to four players to interact directly with the digital games, or players can use the 10-point multitouch screen. The Aura interface functions as a collaborative tool for multi-media content enhanced with its Dolby Home Theatre v4 audio. Flex 20 has also comes with built-in WiFi.

MSRP for the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, ThinkPad Yoga, Flex 14/15 and Flex 20 AIO is $1,099.99, $949, $629.99 and $899.99, respectively. The Yoga 2 Pro will be available beginning in October while the Flex products will be available starting in late September. The ThinkPad Yoga will be available beginning in November. The N700 multimode wireless mouse will be available beginning in September at $59.99.
