Lenovo is preparing to launch a new tablet within the Miix family, an 8 inch model with a pretty reasonable price. The new device is the Miix 2 and it runs on Windows 8.1, plus it’s shown below and doesn’t look bad at all.


The product ships with a full Office Home & Student 2013 license and even bundles a stylus. At the core of this device we’ve got a quad core Intel Bay Trail-T CPU, that can be either a 1.5 GHz Atom Z3770 or the 1.3 GHz Atom Z3740. Other specs include 32 or 64 GB of storage, 2 GB of LPDDR3 memory, a 5 MP back camera and a 2 MP front camera, as well as a microSD card slot.

Lenovo Miix 2 is compact, measuring 8.1 mm in thickness and weighing around 12.32 ounces, which is about 350 grams. This 8 incher supports a 1280 x 800 resolution on a 16:10 IPS display. Lenovo promises 8 hours of battery life from the power unit on this model. Finally, on the connectivity side we get Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, 3G and GPS. The debut in stores takes place before the end of the month.
