Lenovo offers sneak peek at 'Pocket Yoga' Netbook

Lenovo has decided to unveil photos of its Pocket Yoga concept PC

Lenovo has decided to unveil photos of its Pocket Yoga concept PC, an ultra-compact portable that's slim enough to slide in a back pocket. The leather-bound device, which resembles an oversized wallet, features a QWERTY keyboard and a touch screen.

Pocket Yoga does double duty as a conventional netbook-albeit one with a screen that's awfully tiny for conventional, office-style apps-or as a handheld device. A 360-degree hinge allows the display to fold all the way around to the base, thereby allowing the Pocket Yoga to function as a tablet notebook. One particularly clever innovation is the "belt" that wraps around the device. When removed, the belt become a mouse.

Lenovo isn't providing specs or other details at this time, and it's unclear when or if the Pocket Yoga as seen in these photos will ever ship. Pictures of another Lenovo semi-secret project, an Android handset, have recently appeared online as well. Perhaps the Pocket Yoga will evolve into a wireless smart phone?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
