The IFA 2018 platform is being used by Lenovo to launch its Yoga Book C930 and it is being closely examined for new and interesting features. To start with, it has a dual display like its predecessor, but this time there are 2 different displays on the 2 screens. The second screen also doubles up as a keyboard and while the main screen has an LCD display the other one is an e-ink display. Again, the sizes are marginally different.
While the main screen is 10.1 inches the e-ink display is 10 inches in size. One can use the e-ink display screen to write notes as well.
With an Intel chip and the Windows OS, observers see this product as a redemption of sorts for both companies due to the evolution of the smartphone-tablet ear. Lenovo is bringing its own technology into the equation to offer a cross between a workstation and a PC.
The company claims it has found that the customers liked Windows in preference to Android and the Lenovo Yoga C930 has only the Windows option.
Now on to the specs; the processor is the 8th generation Intel Core i5 CPU and the device has 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. As mentioned, the secondary display can be used as a keyboard or a sketchpad and there is an additional feature of the keys offering some kind of a feedback sound. The provision for using Lenovo‚Äôs Active Stylus is also included.
Well it is not as it there are just the good things mentioned here. There are a couple of drawbacks with the Lenovo Yoga C930 as well. The compatibility with some apps is one such difficulty the users may face. That is due to the e-ink display not ready to accept the apps including Amazon Kindle.
The Yoga C930 goes on sale from September and the price in Europe is likely to be ‚ā¨999 (Rs 82,000). There is no information yet on when the device would be launched in India.
