Lenovo's new 'Yoga' tablets run Android and Windows, one has a built-in projector

Lenovo's original, kickstand-toting Yoga Tablet was kind of a flop, thanks to a poor display, sluggish performance and heavily skinned version of Android. (Naming Ashton Kutcher as a "product engineer" probably didn't help either.) Not to be deterred, the company is going all in: Lenovo just announced new versions of the Yoga Tablet, including a big-screen model with a built-in projector, and two that run Windows (it's also still available with Android). Starting with that weird projector edition, called the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, it's not the first gadget we've seen with a built-in lamp, but it's the first we've seen in quite some time. In this case, what we have this time around is a 13-inch Android tablet with a 2,560 x 1,440 screen sharp enough to play movies on its own, though you could also use the in-built Pico projector to create a 50-inch image on the wall.
