CES 2015 has yet to officially start, yet the press releases are coming in thick and fast, and one of the main culprits is Lenovo, who’s raft of new devices is as big as it is innovative. Top of the list for innovative is the 8-inch Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 with AnyPen technology, a new feature that allows the YOGA tablet 2 to be used with any metallic object, be it a pencil, metal ruler, screw driver, or even fork. It’s a pretty neat feature, especially if you’re one to doodle, meaning you can pick up most any object at your desk and get stylus-like performance from it. Thankfully, we got a chance to get a hands-on with the device, the photos of which are above and below.
Like the other members of the YOGA Tablet 2 family, this AnyPen version will also come with a quadcore Intel processor, 8-inch Full HD display and 6,400mAh battery that gives it up to 15 hours of battery life. And of course, the four tenets of the YOGA line – hold, tilt, stand and hang – are all still possible thanks to the YOGA’s unique design language. The YOGA Tablet 2 with AnyPen will come with Windows 8.1, with a one year Office 365 Office subscription and will be available in January starting from $299 USD.
