Lenovo’s latest tablets have Android 12L and competitive prices

Lenovo is upping its game for those looking to both browse the internet on the go and comfortably work from home with the introduction of two new devices: two new Android tablets that could be pretty decent iPad alternatives.

Android tablets aren’t a huge focus for many brands these days, so it’s always nice to see Lenovo remain committed to the form factor. But are its latest releases any good? Here’s what you’ll find with the new Lenovo Tab P11 and Tan P11 Pro.

Both tablets are the second iterations of the P11 family and, as such, boast a handful of small optimizations and improvements from the previous iterations. The base model sports a MediaTek Helio G99 SoC, while the Pro version runs on the more capable MediaTek Kompanio 1300T. The displays for both devices vary immensely; the base version has an 11.5-inch LCD 2K screen, while the Tab P11 Pro sports a slightly smaller 11.2-inch OLED 2.5K display that supports HDR10+.

On just about every level (other than the slight screen size difference,) the Tab P11 Pro outdoes the base model. Both offer the usual slew of RAM and storage options, with the Tab P11 starting at 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and ranging up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The Tab P11 Pro starts at 4GB RAM and 128GB storage and can go all the way up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

While neither device is a major technical powerhouse, both certainly bring things to the table, especially when considering that they’re both made with keyboard and smart pencil support in mind. Additionally, they run on Android 12L but will be supported up to Android 14.

Both the Tab P11 and Tab P11 Pro are currently only available in Europe and will be for sale later this year. The Tab P11 Pro will retail starting at 499 euros in September. Those looking for the base model of the second-gen Tab P11 will need to wait until November when it will retail starting at 299 euros.

Lenovo goes big on Android tablets, and we mean really big
lenovo android tablets yoga tab 13 news m7 hand

Lenovo has gone tablet mad at Mobile World Congress 2021 and announced five new Android-based models, with the most interesting being the enormous Yoga Tab 13, which as the name hints has a whopping 13-inch screen. It’s joined by a slightly smaller 11-inch version, along with the Tab M7 and Tab M8, and the Tab P11 Plus too. Let’s take a closer look.

Lenovo’s gunning for Apple’s iPad Pro range with the new Yoga Tab 13 and Yoga Tab 11, but while the screen sizes are similar to Apple’s best tablets, the Lenovo models have some interesting design features that make them stand out. The Yoga Tab 13 has an unusual Alcantara-covered back, and both models continue with Lenovo’s clever stainless steel kickstand design. It’s integrated into the barrel running down one side of the tablet, and can be used to hold the tablet up in landscape orientation, or even hung from a hook on the wall.

Lenovo wants to draw you away from the allure of an iPad, and into the waiting arms of its newest Android tablet, the Lenovo Tab P11. It’s doing so with a temptingly low price, and a focus on features many want at the moment -- high definition streaming, video calls, and a special family-friendly feature to keep the kids occupied safely.

Announced for CES 2021, the Lenovo Tab P11 will cost just $229 when it is made available during January, and for this, you get an 11-inch tablet made from aluminum in either Slate Grey or Platinum Grey colors. The back of the tablet has a two-tone design, which is reminiscent of Lenovo’s pretty Duet IdeaPad Chromebook.

There’s only one reason I’m still using an iPhone in 2023
A green iPhone 15 lock screen.

It's not an understatement to say I am an Android smartphone fan, as an Android phone has been my faithful companion ever since I started using the HTC Desire in 2010. I've bounced from phone to phone in the 13 years since, and I've experienced good and bad phones alike. But in all that time, I've never spent much time with an Apple iPhone. I'm obviously not unfamiliar with iPhones, having used them during my time as a tech writer grabbing screenshots, downloading apps, and testing games — but never having used one as my primary smartphone is something of a blind spot.

The Apple iPhone 15 is a good reason to end that. After all, if I'm going to use an iPhone, it might as well be Apple's latest. Two weeks after booting it up and transferring my data to it, it's been ... a journey. While I can see the iPhone 15 is an excellent smartphone, too many of iOS's idiosyncracies rub me the wrong way. However, there's one feature I've grown to really love, and I'm going to struggle to live without it.
