Lenovo announced a bunch of new products during its press conference in London on Thursday, including several new tablets for both Android and Windows fans. The devices include the Yoga Tablet 2 in both 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants running Android, the Yoga Tablet 2 in both 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants running Windows 8.1 and a new Yoga Tablet 2 Pro that runs Android.

The Android-powered Yoga Tablet 2 devices come equipped with either an 8-inch 1920 x 1200-pixel display or a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200-pixel display, Intel Z3745 processors, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage that can be expanded with up to a 64GB microSD card, front-facing stereo speakers, 8-megapixel cameras and 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooters and up to 18 hours of battery life on a charge. The 8-inch model will start at $249.99 while the 10.1-inch version will start at $299.99.

Meanwhile, Lenovo is also offering both tablets with Windows 8.1 as well, and the primary difference is that they’ll ship in black instead of silver, which is reserved for the Android models. The processors, cameras, and RAM are all the same as the Android versions, though Lenovo bumps the storage up to 32GB for its Windows machines. The 10.1-inch model will hit Best Buy, where it will be sold with a Bluetooth keyboard, for $399.99 in late October. The 8-inch model will be sold from Lenovo in November for $299.99.

Finally, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro packs the same Intel Z3746 processor, a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1440-pixel display, 32GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM and up to 15 hours of battery life. Even better, Lenovo added a pico-projector right into the side of the tablet that can mirror anything on your display. It shoots up to a 50-inch image and offers an 854 x 480-pixel resolution. It will start at $499 when it launches at the end of October.

Oh, and as for the unique hinge on the back of all of the tablets? It can be used as a kickstand or, thanks to a small hole, to even hang the tablet on a wall or the back of a car seat.

All in all, it looks like Lenovo has a lot to look forward to this holiday season.
