MJ Lastimosa and Markki Stroem are Lenovo's new hangout ambassadors


If you’ve ever shared a video on a tablet with a friend, then you know that hanging out involves those moments. Lenovo knows this and they’ve launched the Lenovo Hangout campaign, with dancing beauty queen MJ Lastimosa and singer, actor, and model Markki Stroem as new hangout ambassadors.

Taking the spotlight in the campaign is the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, a unique line up with four modes – Hold it like a magazine, let it Stand like a picture frame, make it Tilt for a better typing angle, and Hang it for your viewing or reading convenience.

Having Modes and Hangout Moods

In addition to having four intuitive modes – Hold, Stand, Tilt, and Hang – the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 has an 18 hour battery life stamina. That’s a long time to enjoy it with your best friends and loved ones. It’s ergonomic base allows for a firm grip when showing images and videos to friends; its improved kick stand allows for a satisfying move marathon – just leave it on your tablet and enjoy. That the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 has Dolby front speakers definitely adds to the immersive experience. Because of its various modes, you can enjoy social media in any posture and anywhere – on the couch, in bed, on your dining table, at your work station, at a table in Starbucks.

The Intel-powered Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 also has a high-definition 8MP rear camera with an F2.2 wide-aperture lens, glare reducing glass, and a BSI 2 sensor. Food and family shots never looked better. It also features dual band WiFi and a micro USB port with OTG connection that lets you charge your phones with a separate cable. It’s a tablet and a power bank, in one. Talk about hangout stamina.
