Ashton Kutcher, the new spokesman for Lenovo, and the Yoga Tablet  (Source: Lenovo)
Lenovo's new 8" and 10" Android tablets feature three operating modes

That tablet wars are starting to heat up. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen a couple of fresh Windows 8.1-based tablets enter the market along with second generation Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets. We’ve even seen a Windows RT-based entry from Nokia along with the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display from Apple.
 
Now it’s Lenovo’s turn (again), and the hardware maker is looking to turn a few heads with its new Yoga Tablet. The Yoga Tablet lives up to its namesake by including three modes of operation:
 
Hold Mode: Makes it easier to handle the device when reading, making the device more akin to holding a magazine or a book.

 
Stand Mode: By rotating the cylindrical portion of the tablet’s body, a stand pops out that provides an adjustable viewing angle from 110 degrees to 135 degrees. This mode is beneficial when watching movies or interacting with the tablet on a hard surface.

 
Tilt Mode: In this mode, the Yoga Tablet can be placed on a desk to allow for easier typing, internet surfing, and playing games.

 
Under the hood, the Yoga Tablet packs in a 1.2GHz Cortex-A7-derived quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and your choice of either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage (a microSD slot is included for additional storage expansion). Other features include 5MP rear camera, a front-facing camera, and optional 3G connectivity.
 
Unfortunately, the Android-based tablets — which are available in 8” and 10” varieties — only come with a 1280x800 display. Also, the Android 4.2.2 operating system is a step behind Google’s most recent offerings.
 
The Yoga Tablet weighs in a 1.35 pounds for the 10” model, and a 0.88 pounds for the 8” model. Both are good for up to 18 hours of battery life.
 
The Yoga Tablets will be available on October 30, with the 8” model going for $249 and the 10” model coming in a $299.

Lenovo Magic Pad

Looks exactly like an Apple Magic Pad down the the power button placement. Should be comfortable to hold with a better grip.

AFAIK, Sony was the first to use that form factor and power button placement.

I'll say it again: Just because the first place you saw something was on an Apple product doesn't mean they invented it.

No wait, you've forgotten the RDF. Everything Apple is the first and best at everything. Any evidence to the contrary is the work of the Gates.

Who gives a fuck who was the first to use it? It looks exactly like a magic pad and that is all that he said on the subjet.

I visited the link you posted but don't understand since that article doesn't feature a thing that looks like this device or the magic pad?

I never said apple invented it or that Sony copied it lol just that this tablet looks identical to a magic pad, don't know another device that looks like these two. One is a tablet the other is a trackpad only similarities they have is they look identical and both have multitouch surfaces. Don't turn everything into a pro or anti apple debate.

it isn't the same at all first off it is 2 pieces with a lid and the barrel isn't offset like the 2 devices we are talking about.
and either way I didn't say they copied apple!!!!!!!!!!! This tablet still looks exactly like a magic pad and only has 1 design cue in common with the sony laptop. So are you saying they stole the design from Sony instead of Apple does that make it better for you? lol because I don't think they stole from either of them :)
