Yoga Tablet 10 - Basic Technical Question

Hi

 

Based on my experience with the Thinkpad Tablet 1 (Android). I'm looking at the "Yoga Tablet 10" as a replacement for it.

 

I understand it starts shipping at the end of the month but possible someone can help me with this questions.

 

1) Does the tablet has an unlocked bootloader?

2) Does the tablet contains any protected DRM software?

3) Does the tablet has a way to restore the factory Lenovo ROMs in case that the tablet "Recovery Menu" gets corrupted?

 

I don't plan to buy a tablet that has a locked bootloaer since my personal experience with Thinkpad Tablet 1.

If this tablet has a locked bootlader a software problem can turn into a brick that can only be fixed by changing the mainboard. It happened with the Thinkpad Tablet 1.

 

Regards

Martín.

Another item to add to your inquiry: will Lenovo upgrade the Android version of the Yoga tablet. Vs 4.2 is an aging release. Furthermore this version lake trm support which is essential for sad drives. That became a problem for the initial nexus 7 causing sluggishness.

I always wondered where Lenovo publish the "end of life" and "end of support" of their hardware products.
