Ok Lenovo, you’ve piqued the interest of the internet. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy Beam with a built in pico-projector didn’t quite float everyone’s boat, offering a dull, battery sapping projector on a fairly non-descript phone, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro could be something special.

The Yoga Tablet 2 offers a built-in projector which will offer you two ways to watch a film, either on a 13.3″ QHD (2560×1440) resolution display or switch on the integrated projector to view the 50″ projected image. To complement the 50″ projector the tablet also includes 8W JBL Speakers and an integrated sub-woofer.

The tablet comes with some pretty nice hardware inside, as well as running Android 4.4. Lenovo has included some pretty neat audio-sensing software to make the tablet a really fantastic all round media device. They’ve also included a walkthrough with ‘Product Engineer’ Ashton Kutcher in the form of a 4-D image.

Connectivity 802.11b/g/n Dual-Band Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz), Integrated Bluetooth® 4.0

Like the Yoga Tablet 2, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro offers the three ways to stand the tablet that the original Yoga came with – Hold, Stand and Tilt – but adds the hang option to allow you to use it hanging from a hook on a wall etc.

The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro will be available from $799. While the Yoga Tablet 2 is available from Mid-October, with pre-orders starting now on the Lenovo website, there’s merely a ‘Notify Me’ button on the Lenovo webpage to get your details. It’s a pretty nifty idea, which we’d love to play with. We’ll see if Lenovo has any review units to share.

    If it’s an Android tablet, what’s with the Windows logo on the front?

    Noting your comment, and looking at the specs, I’m wondering if this was conceived as a corporate meeting room Win8.1 AIO.

    not sure if this is targeted for home consumers, Not portable, Not light, Not good looking. May be good for reviewing but not for general public.
    For 799 i can actually get a
    $399 nexus and $399 Epson projector from officeworks in total which wil be a better option in my opinion

    Not a bad device in theory. At nearly 1kg, it will not be the most portable device and it will be interesting to hear how using it as a projector will impact the battery life. Still it’s a novelty idea which will garner a bit of interest.
