WIN! A Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 worth 250

WIN! A Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 worth £250

We've teamed up with Lenovo to give you a chance to get your hands on a superb 10-inch Android tablet. 

The YOGA Tablet 2 features an innovative design based around a kickstand to make it easier to watch videos, play games, Skype friends and much more.

Housed inside the multimode tablet is a mighty pair of dual stereo speakers as well as a huge battery giving 18 hours of battery life, allowing you to make the most of your media whether at home or on the move.

With the new Hang mode adding to Stand, Hold and Tilt, you really can use the YOGA Tablet 2 however and wherever you wish.

Work hard, play hard

When you're not using it to impress friends with your latest uber hip Spotify playlist, the YOGA Tablet 2's bright and clear 1920 x 1200 pixel-resolution IPS display gives you plenty of screen space to get work done.

Clever software features like MultiWindow in Android 4.4 KitKat let you snap two windows side-by-side, and thanks to the presence of Intel's snappy 1.33Hz Atom Z3745 chip, everything performs smoother than butter.

To be in with a chance of winning a Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2, just click here and answer this super easy question:

What is the name of the fourth mode that has been added to the tablet, adding to Tilt, Stand and Hold mode?

A) Hang
B) Hook
C) Chill

Please note that this competition is only open to UK residents over 18 years of age.

Tesco set to sell its own Windows tablet?

Tesco set to sell its own Windows tablet?

UK supermarket Tesco is reported to start selling a gaming bundle that includes an Xbox One console and a Connect Windows tablet. The latter may well be a Windows version of the Technika Connect Android-based tablet that surfaced almost two years ago.

What looks like a promotional Tesco poster was posted by Windowscentral; it shows that the bundle will cost £349 and will go on sale on 7th November.

Tesco sells the console without Kinect for £329 which means that the tablet would cost just £20. The cheapest 7-inch Windows tablet on the market is the Linx 7 which retails for £80.

Bundle of joy

Speaking of the which, Tesco has another bundle deal that includes the same tablet and the Nokia Lumia 530 Windows Phone for £129.

Obviously doing so may well harm Tesco's own Hudl 2 product, which retails for the same price as the Nokia Lumia 530 bundle.

But then given the financial troubles that the company is currently in, the prospect of an Xbox-driven Christmas might actually be one that's too good to ignore.

iPad Pro will be as thin as the iPhone 6, says latest rumour

iPad Pro will be as thin as the iPhone 6, says latest rumour

New leaks about the iPad Pro suggest that Apple's business-orientated PGEgaHJlZj0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy5ob3N0aW5na2l0YS5jb20NIiB0YXJnZXQ9Il9ibGFuayIgcmVsPSJub2ZvbGxvdyI+dGFibGV0IDwvYT4=will be as thin as the PGEgaHJlZj0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy5ob3N0aW5na2l0YS5jb20NIiB0YXJnZXQ9Il9ibGFuayIgcmVsPSJub2ZvbGxvdyI+aVBob25lIDwvYT42LiBUaGlzIG1lYW5zIGl0IHdpbGwgYmUgc29tZXdoZXJlIGJldHdlZW4gNi45bW0gYW5kIHRoZSA8YSBocmVmPSJodHRwOi8vd3d3Lmhvc3RpbmdraXRhLmNvbQ0iIHRhcmdldD0iX2JsYW5rIiByZWw9Im5vZm9sbG93Ij5pUGhvbmUgPC9hPg==6 Plus' 7.1m - though not quite as slim as the 6.1mm iPad Air 2.

The rumours, which come from the Japanese Macotakara website (which has a good track record with PGEgaHJlZj0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy5ob3N0aW5na2l0YS5jb20NIiB0YXJnZXQ9Il9ibGFuayIgcmVsPSJub2ZvbGxvdyI+TWFjIDwvYT4=leaks) also claim that the iPad Pro will come with a 12.2-inch display.

This is smaller than the previously rumoured 12.9-inches, though still larger than the 12-inches that the Surface Pro 3, the iPad Pro's biggest competitor, sports.

Sound design

The iPad Pro will apparently look like a larger iPad Air 2 and will come with two additional speakers and an extra microphone at the top for enhanced audio and recording.

Rumours suggest the iPad Pro might be launching some time during the third quarter of 2015, but as we know, nothing is gospel until it's gospel.
