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.

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.
