Lenovo is bringing the 'Halo' keyboard, first seen on the Yoga Book down to sub $300 price tag. The company has announced a new Android convertible featuring Halo keyboard at $299. The 2-in-1 convertible device will be available from Amazon in the US starting February 7 and from Lenovo's website starting February 8.
Lenovo Yoga A12 features a 12.2-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The tablet is powered by a 2.4GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processor aided by 2GB RAM and 32GB SSD storage. The convertible weighs less than 1 kilograms and is 0.43 inches thick.
Lenovo Yoga A12's top attraction is the Halo keyboard - a modern take on on-screen keyboards found on most tablet devices. The Halo keyboard skips on physical keys and rather augments keys on a backlit surface. The keys offer nice haptic feedback but we did note in our Yoga Book review that "the learning curve is inescapable."
Lenovo Yoga A12 features a 360-degree hinge that converts the device from a laptop to a tablet and anything in between. The device runs Android with a three-column multi-window support. The convertible device will be available in either gunmetal grey or rose gold colours.
