Message Text: Lenovo today offically debuted its first multimode Yoga Tablet at a livestream launch event with Ashton Kutcher, the company's newest product engineer.

The Yoga Tablet features three modes: Withhold, tilt and stand modes. Additionally the tablet has an up to 18 hours of battery life.

With its cylindrical handle, hold mode is designed to fit an individual's hand. Hold mode makes reading, checking social media and browsing the web easy and parallels how people hold magazines when reading.

To convert the Yoga Tablet into stand mode, rotate the side cylinder 90 so that the tablet stand deploys, allowing the tablet to stand by itself on a desk or table. Users can change the viewing angle to fit what?s comfortable for them from 110 to 135. Stand mode makes it easy for users to watch movies, place video calls and interact with the ten-finger touchscreen without having to rely on add-on accessories.

Users can lay the Yoga Tablet down in tilt mode to type directly on the tablet, play games and just surf the Internet with a better viewing angle. Users can enable the tablet's auto-detection software that automatically brings up frequently used apps in hold and stand modes.

The Yoga Tablet's multimode cylindrical handle packs in dual batteries and uses batteries typically found in laptops. It can even charge other devices such as smartphones via its USB on-the-go. The 10 inch and 8 inch models run on MT8125 for WiFi models and MT8389 Quad Core processors for 3G models with 16 or 32 GB capacity and feature Android 4.2. It is also equipped with Dolby audio and front-facing speakers.

Both models are weighing in at 1.35 lbs for the 10-in model and 0.88 lbs for the 8-in model. They feature 1280 x 800 displays, a 5 MP auto focus rear camera plus an additional front camera, a micro SD expansion slot, allowing up to 64 GB of total storage, WiFi and optional 3G in select countries and a micro USB connection and Dolby DS1. Lenovo offers an optional Bluetooth keyboard for the 10-in model that functions as a cover and even wakes up the tablet when it?s removed and puts the tablet to sleep when it's attached. Users can also opt for a WD100 dongle in select countries to stream video content from the tablet wirelessly to a TV.

MSRP is $249 and $299, for the 8-in and 10-in, respectively. Starting on Oct. 30, the 8-in model will be available exclusively at Best Buy stores and www.lenovo.com while the 10-in model will be available via major retailers including Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Fry's, Newegg.com and www.lenovo.com.
