Almost everything about the Yoga Tablet experience feels cheap and shoddy. A relatively budget-friendly price and spectacular battery life lessen the damage somewhat, but ultimately that's not enough to recommend this machine.

Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even at its low cost.

The problem is that the device doesn't feel like one ready for mass consumption. The Yoga Tablet is instead the first step towards a great product that took a wrong turn and never found its way back.

Though its name would suggest otherwise, the Yoga Tablet actually comes in not one, but two sizes: 8 and 10 inches. Regardless, you're in for nearly the same specs, including a 1,280 x 800 IPS display, quad-core MediaTek processor, dual 5MP/1.6MP cameras and up to 16GB of built-in storage.

Lenovo is heating up the Android tablet space with the introduction of two tablets aimed directly at the Nexus line. The Yoga Tablet comes in 8 and 10-inch models similar to the budget friendly Nexus slates, but the Yogas get 18 hours of battery life.

There's an aluminum kickstand that allows you to stand the tablets up or lay them down at an angle, making them more comfortable to type on. The back is polycarbonate, and overall the tablets feel pretty well-built.

The quality of the build is pretty good however. From the time we've spent with the Yoga Tablet at the launch event and subsequently, it feels well put together. The silvered finish is fetching, blending metals and plastics.

For what Lenovo's asking — $249 and $299 for the 8-inch and 10-inch, respectively — you can do much, much better. Google's Nexus 7 has far superior specs for the same starting price

For starters, this tablet is one sleek and sexy product which feels great in the hand and makes you just want to hold it. It has a similar design to Sony's Tablet S which has a folded newspaper style wedge shape putting most of the weight in your hand and therefore making it easier to handle.

First impressions suggest that this little monster is the left turn the rest of the industry might not have expected – and it’s looking and feeling rather good.

Relying on the same hardware as its 10-inch sibling, the 8-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz MT8125 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. Obviously, it’s not something that would make people drool, but from what we’re able to see, it’s effective enough.

This rounded edge makes the Lenovo Yoga Tablet look remarkably similar to the wireless Apple keyboard, which comes bundled with an iMac. Although this unusual design makes the tablet stand out from the competition, this is not necessary a bad thing.

Running a lightly customised version of Android 4.2.2 and coming in 8in and 10in variants, the Yoga Tablet resembles nothing so much as an oversized Apple Magic Trackpad. Across most of the screen area it’s an exceptionally slim 3mm deep, but with a cylindrical protrusion.

In portrait mode that bulge also means the Lenovo Yoga Tablet has space for forward-firing stereo speakers, something that more slender tablets can only dream of (and again the last time we saw it was on the Sony Xperia Tablet S). These alone make the audio more immediate.

The upshot of this quirky design is that it's more comfortable to hold in one hand. Lenovo calls this basic act 'Hold Mode', and there are two other configurations too – 'Tilt Mode'and 'Stand Mode', and they're both possible thanks to a built-in kickstand which folds out from the rear of the...
