After releasing the Yoga Book in Windows and Android OS variants, Lenovo has now confirmed that the 2-in-1 tablet will soon be available with Chrome OS. As per the report by Laptop Mag, Lenovo will bring the Yoga Book with Chrome OS in 2017. However, we don’t know if this also stands for India as Lenovo launched only the Windows variant earlier this month starting at Rs 49,990. Further, the company didn’t gave any estimated time period for the global launch.
In a statement made to Laptop Mag, Lenovo’s Vice President and General Manager of the Android and Chrome Computing Business Group, Jeff Meredith said – “We’ve had a lot of interest. It’s an interesting idea for education, especially with the form factor. Over time, we probably see the Android and Chrome versions melding together, especially based on the fact that we’ve now seen Chrome roll out the Google Play store capability into Chrome. We’ll probably maintain the three distinctive products throughout this year at least,”
Not only this, he also assured that the Chrome OS variant will come with all the features and components including the Real Pen as seen in the Windows or Android variant. Chrome OS has been under continuous development and is finally up as a strong OS after Android Apps integration. The OS is extremely light and should work well after all the Android Apps now available on the OS.
Coming to the Yoga Book, the 2-in-1 tablet from Lenovo sports a 10.1-inch IPS full HD display coupled with Dolby Atmos for the audio making it up for perfect media consumption. On the inside, it is powered by an Intel x5 processor paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. For the ports, the device comes with a microUSB, micro HDMI and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Lenovo Yoga Book comes with either Windows 10 Pro platform or runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. For the battery, there is an 8,500 mAh cell which Lenovo claims can provide up to 15 hours of use on Android and up to 13 hours on Windows.
