Lenovo brings its Yoga Book 2-in-1 to India, starts at ₹49,990

Lenovo announced the Yoga Book at IFA earlier in September this year; the Yoga Book is quite unique in what offers – even more unique is how it offers it.

The Yoga Book looks like any other 2-in-1 would – until you open it; Lenovo decided to do something new – the 2-in-1 ditches the traditional keyboard and replaces it with a pressure sensitive touch surface powered by a Wacom digitizer.

It’s certainly not alike any other 2-in-1 out there; the pressure-sensitive surface allows you to draw on the 2-in-1 with Lenovo’s RealPen stylus – but there’s more to it. You can have a piece of paper on top of the pressure sensitive surface and write using the stylus on the paper – the stylus works as a pen as well.

This simple innovation might remind a few older folks of the good old carbon paper – the sheet of paper that made a copy of whatever you wrote; this allows you to have a physical copy on a piece of paper, as well as a digital one you can store and share online.

It’s certainly an interesting idea for a 2-in-1, but the Yoga Book fails to impress when it comes to the raw specifications – with an Intel Atom processor, you are not going to get much performance out of the device.

Pricing & Availability

Lenovo launched the Yoga Book in U.S. soon after its reveal at IFA in September; while Lenovo offers two version for the Yoga Book: one that runs Android, and one that runs Windows, it doesn’t do so for India. The Windows version is $50 more expensive in the U.S.

For today’s India launch, Lenovo is only bringing the Windows version – at the price of ₹49,990, it’s a bit more expensive than the American price of $549, but that’s how the world works.

It’s available exclusively via Flipkart, where taxes and shipping charges will be applied (if any) on top of the ₹49,990 price-tag.
