Lenovo Yoga A12

Lenovo released Yoga A12, a convertible tablet powered by Android which starts at $299. The original Yoga Book was released last year which is an ultra-thin Windows 10 and Android convertible tablet. But the new A12 is just available in Android. The A12 tablet inherits most of the features of the original Yoga Book. The Yoga Book has set new standards in the tech with its pen-based interactions. The brand new A12 is the one of the cheapest in its range which starts at $299.

Perfect Competitor:

The new Lenovo Yoga A12 is just getting ready to take on  Samsung’s $449 Chromebook Plus and Acer’s Chromebook Spin 11. While everyone is perfect in their own way, let’s see who would win in the long run. Also, Lenovo is planning to release a Chrome OS version of Yoga Book later this year. This decision depicts Lenovo’s strong desire to compete in the 2-in-1s market.

Android or Chrome OS? Which one to choose? Tough to answer. Both of them are powered by Linux Kernel. But here is the best part, the new Chromebooks are optimised for Android Apps too.
