Lenovo Yoga Tablet

Lenovo Yoga TabletYesterday Lenovo announced another new Tablet to join its existing lineup. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet will be the worlds first multimode tablet and like the Yoga laptops in the range will be able to function in a number of orientations.

From a side-view the Yoga Tablet looks a little like an Apple Wireless Keyboard and it really is that slim, and will be available in both 8 and 10 inch varieties with either WiFi and 3G or WiFi only. The top model with 32GB of flash memory.

Quite surprisingly, unlike the Yoga 13 that we looked at recently, these new tablets will run Android OS rather than Windows 8.

As I’m now one of the LNVO INSDRS, I should be getting some hands on time with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet shortly so watch this space for our videos and review.

ZTE Blade Q Series announced

ZTE Blade QZTE is a company that seems to be doing very well at the moment and the brand itself is definitely emerging as a recognisable name to consumers.

ZTE have released a number of devices under the Blade name over the past few years and each one has built upon the success of the previous. Today ZTE have announced their latest ZTE Blade Q series which, like several other manufacturers out there that we could mention, is available in small, medium and large.

The specification of each model in the Blade Q range, which can be seen below, is impressive and if previous form is anything to go by they are likely to be extremely competitively priced.

Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will be coming to Android

oculus-rift-smartphone-support-AndroidIt is now confirmed that the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will be coming to Android and that Android users will also have their own headset. A newly announced mobile headset will be a lighter consumer version of the Oculus Rift headset already planned for PC.

We have some exciting plans on the mobile VR side as the PC VR side. We’re really looking at hitting the consumer market. We’re very excited about what we’re seeing. Skeptical about how good mobile VR could be on such a small platform. It’s pretty incredible what [John Carmack has] been able to do. – Chief executive officer Brendan Iribe

Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot more in terms of details than what was mentioned. As for when we can expect the Android headset to be released, the company is hoping to have both the PC and Android versions release simultaneously or as close to it as possible. No word on pricing as of yet.
