Earlier this year, Lenovo announced ThinkPad 8, a premium 8 inch tablet constructed of machine-cut aluminum, with the ability to connect to a keyboard and display for a full PC experience. Or flip its optional Quickshot Cover over the tablet to convert into Tent Mode. In addition, it allowed users to capture photos and videos intuitively and easily with the Quickshot cover. Users just peel back the tablet’s cover to expose the 8 MP high definition camera, triggering the camera app to open. Once captured, users can view and edit their photos and videos on the super bright 8.3 inch 1920×1200 display and transfer them wirelessly using Miracast technology or view them via a cable using its microHDMI port. Supporting a full PC experience, ThinkPad 8 is armed with the latest Intel Bay Trail Quad Core processor, up to 128GB of storage, a microUSB 3.0 port, LTE connectivity and a full Windows8 Pro experience for professional needs.
According to report from ITWorld, Lenovo has stopped selling all its smaller display Windows tablets in the US. It includes ThinkPad 8 and Lenovo Miix 2 consumer tablet. Lenovo is not seeing enough interest for small Windows tablets in the US.
“In North America, we’re seeing stronger interest in the larger screen sizes for Windows tablets and are pleased with initial customer demand for the ThinkPad 10,”
“In other markets, particularly Brazil, China, and Japan, the demand for ThinkPad 8 has been much stronger, so we are adjusting our ThinkPad 8 inventories to meet increasing demand in those markets. If market demand for ThinkPad 8 changes, we will re-evaluate our strategy,”
Microsoft Store currently seems to have some stocks of ThinkPad 8, grab it before it goes out of stock.
