Lenovo Yoga Book released, early reviews cite software issues but an incredible design

The Lenovo Yoga Book is... odd. When it was announced in September, it was very different from any laptop or convertible I had seen before. Instead of the standard keyboard and touchpad combination, the bottom panel is a giant Wacom digitizer for sketching and taking notes. When you need to be productive, the bottom panel can switch to the 'Holo keyboard,' a touch keyboard and trackpad in the typical laptop layout.

Now that reviews are out, what is the general consensus? Everyone who has tried it remarks about how amazing the device looks in person. LaptopMag called it, "one of the most beautiful pieces of technology I've ever laid my eyes upon," in their review.

New Lenovo layoffs at Moto, company has now lost over 95% of employees in four years

Speaking to Droid-life, both sources inside the company and Motorola itself confirmed today that Lenovo has conducted a brutal round of layoffs at Moto. According to DL, over 50% of Motorola's existing US staff have lost their jobs. A 20-year veteran of the company allegedly posted on Facebook that he had been laid off, so it looks like Lenovo is cutting deep at the device-maker.

One source told them that over 700 employees would be asked to leave of the over 1200 Motorola currently employs. No doubt Lenovo hopes to cut costs by integrating much of Motorola's software and hardware development into its own smartphone unit.

The Android version of Lenovo's funky Yoga Book convertible is up for pre-order for $500

Lenovo turned a lot of heads when it announced its latest Yoga design, the Yoga Book. It's essentially a convertible laptop with a fold-back screen, complete with the Yoga line's well-regarded watch band hinge. But the Yoga Book has an ace up its sleeve: instead of a conventional keyboard, it uses a gigantic touch-sensitive panel that includes a dedicated keyboard mode, with virtual backlit "keys" that can be activated at a touch. Windows and Android versions are being made, and the latter is now up for pre-order.

Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the first phone with integrated Project Tango, delayed to "fall"

Google's Project Tango, that awesome tech that allows a gadget to map out three-dimensional spaces, is really cool. But it's taking its damn sweet time getting here: Tango was first announced over two years ago and offered as a developer kit tablet last summer, and the first Tango-capable smartphone was supposed to arrive from Lenovo this month. That seems less than likely now - the store page for the Phab 2 Pro has been adjusted from "coming this summer" to "coming this fall."

Lenovo announces the Yoga Book, a convertible tablet with a touch keyboard and digitizer

Lenovo's Yoga Book is what the company is calling, "the first tablet for natural sketching and note-taking," and "the world's thinnest and lightest 2-in-1." What makes this tablet so special? Lenovo's "halo keyboard." Much to the chagrin of typists everywhere, this is a purely touch keyboard, which makes the "thinnest and lightest 2-in-1" claim true. But Lenovo claims over 18 months of development work has gone into testing and improving the halo keyboard, including features such as haptic feedback and accidental keypress detection.
