Lenovo IdeaPadWho said there’s not much room left for innovation in the Android landscape? Definitely not Lenovo, the company that’s apparently looking to transfer some of its Windows-based Yoga magic to its line-up of Android tablets.

The IdeaPad B6000 and B8000, though unannounced and technically unreleased, have been caught red-handed while trying to inconspicuously make their way to a couple of German retailers. Again, the duo is not yet up for grabs, but the listings are yet to be deleted, so my guess is shipping will be kicked into gear momentarily.

Although the two IdeaPads don’t replicate Yoga designs to the letter, skipping on the added productivity of physical keyboards, they’re pretty bendy themselves, courtesy of built-in rotating stands. That’s a first for Android slates, albeit as you imagine it has its ups and downs.

On one hand, you can use the B6000 and B800 from various angles (especially handy for watching videos or whatnot), but on the other the tabs come with quite a bit of extra bulk compared with regular 8 or 10-inchers.

Talking about their displays, let’s mention both sport 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, which is fine for the smaller fellow, but fairly disappointing for the big guy. Other features include sub-par 1.2 GHz quad-core MediaTek CPUs, yet more than decent 5 MP rear cams, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 16 GB of on-board storage (each), 6,000 and 9,000 mAh batteries and 1 gig of RAM (again each).

Bottom line, the fresh new flexible IdeaPads are no powerhouses, which is why they’re set to start at roughly €215 ($290) and €280 ($380) in Europe.
