Google announces Daydream standalone VR headsets with beacon-free position tracking, HTC Vive and Lenovo onboard

VR has slowed in both improvements and public excitement recently. But that hasn't stopped Google from bettering its Daydream platform, its take on so-called "smartphone VR." Like Samsung's version, Daydream requires a phone to operate. As cool as this was, it led to some issues, notably battery life and heat. During this year's I/O keynote, Google announced the Standalone VR headsets that were rumored yesterday. As the name suggests, these devices won't require a phone to operate.

If the Samsung Chromebook Plus or the upcoming Pro (also expected to land this month) are a bit too rich for your blood, this might be a compelling alternative.

The Yoga Book Chrome OS model may have been cancelled

Lenovo's Yoga Book was one of the more interesting hardware launches of last year. It had the form factor of a 2-in-1 laptop, but the bottom panel could switch between a touch keyboard and a drawing pad. At launch, both Windows and Android models were available.

Back in December, a Lenovo executive stated that a Chrome OS variant would be released in 2017. Unfortunately, a recent Chromium commit discovered by Chrome Unboxed seems to indicate that the model will not see the light of day.

[Deal Alert] Amazon is discounting unlocked phones from Sony, LeEco, Lenovo, and more by up to $125

Unlocked phones are great. You can take them to whichever carrier you desire, you usually have greater control over software modification, and you don't have to deal with contracts. Amazon seems to think so, too; as a result, it's running an "Amazon Unlocked Phone Event" that starts today, with discounts on Sony Xperia, LeEco, Lenovo, ASUS, and Coolpad smartphones.

Lenovo Yoga A12 review: How can so many bad ideas fit in one tablet?

I wanted to review one of Lenovo's unique tablet-with-a-kinda-sorta-keyboard-touchpad models as soon as I saw them. My Android Police colleagues thought the core idea behind the Yoga A12 was dumb, saddling the flexibility of a tablet with the extra size and weight of a laptop while taking away its greatest advantage, a full keyboard. So I asked Lenovo for a review unit. They told me no. That probably should have been a second hint that this wasn't going to be an especially impressive product.

[Update: Now $425] Deal Alert: If you really need a Tango phone, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is $50 off ($450) with coupon

You probably don't need a Tango device. While the Google-developed spatial awareness tech is cool, it's also incredibly niche, and there are only a few fleeting practical applications for its use once you get past the admittedly nifty tech demos. But if you can in fact justify several hundred dollars for a one-off design, there's a way you can save a few bucks today. Lenovo is offering $50 off of the Phab 2 Pro, the first (and very likely only) consumer device with Tango camera tech, bringing it down to $449.99.

Lenovo's new Tab 4 Series is a collection of 4 different tablets aimed at kids, teens, and adults alike

Beside the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus, Lenovo is introducing a few tablets at MWC this year: the Tab 4 Series. And a "series" this is, because we're talking about 4 different tablets, without factoring in LTE and non-LTE versions, storage options, and colors. There's the regular Tab 4 in both 8" and 10" variants, then there's the Tab 4 Plus also in 8" and 10" variants.

All of them have Dolby Atmos for better sound with headphones or through the stereo speakers. They will all run Android 7.0 with Lenovo talking up multi-user support to allow many family members to use the same tablet.

Lenovo's super-slim Yoga A12 is available a day ahead of schedule

The Lenovo Yoga A12 is the company's latest attempt at an Android tablet/laptop thing. It is a more toned-down version of the Yoga Book with lower specs, no Windows or Chrome OS options, and a lower price point to boot. The device was not supposed to be available until February 8, but both the Lenovo store and Amazon are allowing full purchases. Maybe because it's already the 8th on the other side of the world?
