The new 8-inch HD tablet will be available soon.
Lenovo has announced its latest tablet, the Miix2. The Windows 8.1 device features an 8-inch 1200x800 10-point multi-touch IPS display and measures 8.35mm thick and weighs just 350g.
The Miix2 is powered by an Intel Bay Trail-T Quad Core processor and integrated Intel HD Graphics. A 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera are also included. In addition, the tablet comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 preinstalled, and offers stylus and detachable cover options as well.
"Many users want the convenience of a smaller screen tablet, but do not want to lose the performance and convenience of a powerful, quad core Windows 8.1 device. With the Lenovo Miix2 8-inch, users can take advantage of a small, light form factor without sacrificing performance," said Bai Peng, vice president and general manager, notebook business unit, Lenovo Business Group. "The Lenovo Miix2 8-inch is a great example of how thoughtful design can deliver the best of both worlds."
The Miix2 is set to launch later this month for a suggested retail price of $299.
