I went down to Lenovo Bugis and the staff confirmed that the Windows version does not have LTE after consulting with the supervisor.

I might just go ahead and order from the website since it states there is LTE. Maybe I will get a pleasant surprise or return it for a refund if the specs don't match
Best to live chat with lenovo staff at their website. To confirm. From what I was told from lenovo staff during live chat was told the sleeve and office software will only be available to them end of this week.

Make sense if Windows version does not have LTE and Android version has it as both are the same price.

Overseas pricing, for without LTE, Android version is cheaper compared to Windows version

If only window version has the LTE, it would be almost perfect mobile device...

But I seriously wonder why manufacture products with such difference..? Why not manufacture all device with the same config..? Wouldn't it be better or easier..?

I tried both at Marina Square, really attractive devices, don't think the Halo Keyboard is a big issue if you rmb it's just a touch sensitive panel instead of real keyboard. I think it works better on Android with their auto-correction feature but I'm uncertain about the future Android update for it. Windows on the other hand, at least got guarantee windows update but the processor might not make it in next 2 years time.

The halo keyboard is a plus point that makes me get the Android model.

I plan to get Windows version as I will need to use OneNote windows version.

OneNote android version is too crippled compared to its windows version.

Lenovo SG updated their website and confirms that the Windows version is Wifi only.

Anyone tested to see if the Yoga Book can accept 200gb micro sd card?

Does Office Mobile needs an Office 365 subscription

Hey there, I am new to this forum. I am attracted to the yoga book and very much love to have one - andriod version. To those who have already got one, can u help me check if u need an Office 365 subscriptiion to edit word and excel documents? I did a google search and some websites state that as long as the device is 10.1 or smaller, office mobile is free for editing too. Yet some websites said otherwise. So, bros, can help download office mobile from Google play and try if u can edit the files and reply me? I await your favourable reply asap. Thanks so much.

They priced Android and Windows at the same price here in SG. By right, Android is supposed to be cheaper, so in order to price it the same as Windows version, they included LTE broadband on Android version.


Typically LTE broadband will cost $100, so in a way they are pricing Windows licence at $100.
