Lenovo announces $299, 8” Windows 8.1 tablet

Lenovo logoLenovo is expanding its reach into the Windows 8.x tablet arena with the introduction of the new Miix2. The Miix2 is an 8.1” tablet that runs Windows 8.1.

Although the idea of a compact, 8.1” tablet running a full-blown version of Windows is admirable, one must also realize that the screen resolution is “only” 1280x800. With that said, Lenovo says that the display features a 178-degree viewing angle and features 10-point multi-touch.

When it comes to processing power, the Miix2 features an Intel Bay Trail-T quad-core processor paired with integrated seventh generation Intel HD Graphics. Storage duties are handled by either 32GB or 64GB of onboard eMMC storage. This, however, can be expanded thanks to an included microSD slot.

Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11n, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera.

The tablet measures 5.18” x 8.48” x 0.32”, weighs just 0.77 pounds, and has up to seven hours of battery life.

The Miix2 will start at $299 for the 32GB version; the 64GB model will set you back $349. Lenovo is also selling a cover with an include stylus pen for $20. The tablet and its accessories will be available later this month.
