Today's gadget is the new Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, which runs Android 4.4 KitKat. It has one the biggest screens available at 13.3” QHD (2560x1440). Powered by the newest Intel Atom Z3745 processor and has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD slot to add up to 64GB more.

There are two cameras; a 1.6MP unit on the front and an 8MP unit on the rear. There’s a ‘tube’ along the bottom of the device that packs many new, unique features as well. First there’s a healthy 9,600-mAh battery that Lenovo says will run the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro for up to 15 hours. Then there’s a built-in Pico projector for displaying your favorite movies, sales presentation, etc. -- up to a 50” on a darkened surface. To enhance your sound experience the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro has an 8W JBL speaker system (two 1.5W front-facing speakers plus a 5W subwoofer built into the back.)

Weighing in at 2.09-lb, it still has Lenovo’s Stand, Tilt, and Hold modes -- but now there’s a new “Hang” mode to mount the device on a wall. For connectivity there’s 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s also optional LTE wireless. The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro will launch in late October for $499 (without LTE) and will be available from Lenovo.com and Best Buy.
