After announcing an 8″ and 10″ Yoga branded tablet in October last year, Lenovo has kicked off their Mobile World Congress by announcing a followup to the 10″ Yoga tablet with the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+.
The new 10″ Yoga tablet brings a whole host of hardware updates on the original model with the screen, processor, RAM and cameras all upgraded. The software too is updated with the tablet coming out of the box with Android 4.3 but an update to Android 4.4 is waiting for users as soon as they open the box.

Lenovo expects the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ to be available at retailers in the US and online through Lenovo.com in April starting at US$349. We’ve contacted Lenovo Australia for any local release details.
Do you think they’ll bring out an 8″ version like the previous pair?
Noting the frequencies supported, are we looking at what could be an Optus exclusive tablet if it is released here?
Provided that they release the 3G model here (Unlikely as they’ve never actually released cellular Android products previously) then yes it would have to operate on Optus as the Telstra/Vodafone 850MHz freq is missing.
