Lenovo unveils Miix 2, an 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet
Wednesday, 16 October 2013
Lenovo has unveiled their first 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet, the Miix 2.
The device has a 1200x800 resolution, has up to 128GB internal storage, and more importantly runs on the new efficient quad-core Intel Bay Trail processor.
On the front there is a 2MP camera and a 5MP camera, on par with other rival devices. Additionally, a full version of Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 is pre-installed.
"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."
Lenovo says the device will start shipping later this month, with a starting price of $299. There will also be a cover case and stylus available as accessories.
