Lenovo's new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is like an Olympic gymnast

Revamped 10in tab now has the power to go with its flexible form

It's always important to learn from your mistakes, and that's what Lenovo appears to have done with its new Yoga Tablet 10 HD+.

When we reviewed the first version of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 we praised its innovative three-modes-in-one form and incredible stamina. Its performance and screen? Less so.

So it's good news that the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ rights those wrongs - and in some style.

Your flexible friend

While the design itself hasn't changed much from last year's model, it remains the most interesting thing about the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+. Unlike every other identikit slate, it has a cylindrical protruberance at its base which gives it its flexible nature: grip it in 'Hold' mode or flip out the kickstand and use it in 'Tilt' or 'Stand' mode. 

It's a great idea that we loved when we tested the first model, and with the kickstand being made longer so that it now stands the tablet upright at a more useful angle, it promises to be even better on the HD+. 

Bigger changes are afoot elsewhere. For starters, the screen gets a major spec bump - it's now a full HD 1920x1200 effort with a decent 224ppi, whereas the last version was only 1280x800. In fact, pretty much everything else about the Yoga is now better than before. The processor is now a Snapdragon 400 running at 1.6GHz, RAM has been doubled to 2GB and there's now an 8MP camera round the back.

One thing we hope hasn't changed about the Yoga is its battery life. The first model could supposedly last for 18 hours, and as the HD+ has the same 9000mAh cell inside it, we'd hope for the same here.

Pricing and availability for both the Wi-Fi and 3G versions in Malaysia haven't been announced yet.
