Lenovo Group has announced the Lenovo Miix2 8” tablet that features a perfect balance between performance, feature-set, quality and price. The novelty features Intel Corp.’s latest Atom Z3000-series system-on-chip, 8” IPS display as well as Microsoft Corp. Windows 8.1 operating system. At $299 starting price, the Miix2 will be very a competitive solution against Apple iPad mini.

Lenovo Miix2 8” is based on Intel Atom Z3000-series “Bay Trail-T” system on chip with four Silvermont cores and Intel’s seventh-generation HD Graphics engine. The tablet is equipped with 8.1” IPS multi-touch display with 1280*800 resolution, 2MP front-facing cam, 5MP back-facing cam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G (select models on select countries) and other hardware. Different versions of Miix2 will feature 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of NAND flash storage. The new tablet from Lenovo weighs just about 350 grams and is only 8.35mm thick. The Miix2 is paired with an optional stylus and detachable cover.

“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”, users can take advantage of a small, light form factor without sacrificing performance. The Lenovo Miix2 8” is a great example of how thoughtful design can deliver the best of both worlds,” said Bai Peng, vice president and general manager of notebook business unit at Lenovo Business Group.

The device comes pre-installed with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013, allowing users to easily view, edit and manage their documents right out of the box. The tablet also offers the option of a stylus and detachable cover. The cover protects the screen when not in use and doubles as a stand for viewing content on the device. The stylus is a perfect companion for drawing, sketching or taking notes and further enhances productivity.

The Miix2 8” will be available later this month beginning at approximately $299.
