article imageLenovo will continue to sell small Windows tablets

By Owen Weldon     Jul 21, 2014 in Technology
Last week it was found out that Lenovo stopped selling its 8-inch Windows tablets in North America, due to a steep drop in consumer demand.
According to ZDNet, a spokesperson for Lenovo said that the company was seeing a stronger interest in Window tablets with larger screens.
According to PCWorld, Lenovo eventually issued a statement and explained that the company was actually not going to permanently exit the small-screen Windows tablet space in the U.S.
According to Digital Trends, Lenovo said that a brand new 8-inch Windows tablet was being prepped for launch for "this holiday," but the company didn't provide any other details.
The company said that in short they will still continue to sell the 8-inch tablet, as well as the 10-inch tablet, and not just in the US market, but non-US markets too. The statement came after sales on the ThinkPad 8 halted and after the selling out of the Miix.
The Miix and the ThinkPad carried a price tag of around $400 and $300, but both products were a tough sell for the company, and they faced tough competition, such as Android tablets, which usually do not cost as much as the ThinkPad 8 and the Miix.
The stock of the ThinkPad 8 has been redirected to developing countries, and it is not known whether or not consumers in the US will be able to order the Miix 2 again.
Acer, Dell and Toshiba are some of the companies that sell Windows tablets with screens smaller than 10 inches.
