Earlier this week, Lenovo took the wraps off of their newest Android tablet, the Yoga A12, and now the tablet is available for purchase from Lenovo's website as well as Amazon. The Lenovo Yoga A12 is going to set you back about $299, which is actually a somewhat unpopular price point for an Android tablet these days. Typically they are all cheap (like the Amazon Fire Tablet at $49) or all above $499 like the Galaxy Tab S2 from Samsung. This tablet from Lenovo is basically a lower-end Yoga Book, a tablet/laptop that the company unveiled at IFA 2016 last fall.
Inside the Lenovo Yoga A12, there is an Intel Atom x5 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It features a 12.2-inch HD (that means 720p not 1080p) display, along with dual Dolby Atmos speakers, providing some great sounding audio from this tablet. The battery in the Yoga A12 is said to last around 12 hours of usage, which is pretty decent for a tablet of this size. Lenovo has also created a hybrid interface here, where you have all of your Android apps and games, but it's more like a desktop setting, which makes sense, considering the size of the tablet. Of course, the Yoga A12 being an Android tablet, does come with a slew of Google's productivity apps including Drive, Sheets, and others.
You can pick up the Lenovo Yoga A12 right now from Lenovo.com and Amazon for just $299. It's available for shipping and arriving as early as tomorrow. Which means you'll be able to pick up this tablet quickly and start using it. The Lenovo Yoga A12 is available in a few different colors, and has a keyboard attached – which is similar to the Yoga Book. It's a great alternative to the Yoga Book, especially seeing as it is nearly $200 cheaper than the Android version of the Yoga Book, and about $250 less than the Windows version. Those that are looking for a decent Android tablet, with actual Google apps, and not looking to spend a boat load of cash. This might just be the best tablet to pick up right about now.
