This latest tab from Lenovo features a 10 inch 4 point multi-touch capacitive IPS display capable of giving a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixel and will be running on the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS.
Company officials are saying that their latest offering is designed to be a budget tablet, powered by Media Tek ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor and ably supported by a RAM of 1GB.
The tablet’s on-board storage capacity is of 16GB that can be expanded further by using its microSD slot. It also packs in a front facing 0.3 mega pixel camera along with a 5 mega pixel rear camera for shooting videos and photographs.

Lenovo has launched a new multi-mode tablet that features Windows 8. The latest in the range of multi-mode devices is Miix, which has 10.1″ screen with 1366×768 resolution and runs on Intel Atom dual-core processors.
Though Lenovo has not announced a specific date for release, Miix can be expected to be available in the market by the end of June. The $500 price also seems appropriate.
Indeed, Lenovo could have named a little more innovatively but the multi-mode capability of device justifies the literal meaning of its name. The device has a quick-flip keyboard folio, which can be attached to or detached from the device to use it like a desktop or a tablet respectively. Lenovo Miix is thinner than ½ inch and weighs a little more than 500g.
The technical features other than the OS and the processor include Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, 64GB of eMMC storage that can be expanded further by 32GB micro-SD card and optional 3G GPS connectivity. Under its best condition, the battery can supply power to Miix up to 10 straight hours.
Apart from Miix, Lenovo also announced IdeaPad S-series with price-range of $429 to $579 and IdeaPad U-series with price range of $799 to $899.
If all goes well, then we are going to witness the launch of a number of Windows 8 tablets in the coming months. Until now, Acer has confirmed the launch of its 8-inch Iconia W3 priced at $379 within June. At Computex 2013, a reference design for a 7-in tablet was also spotted.
A number of pictures taken at the trade show revealed that Lenovo is coming up with its own 8-in Windows 8 tablet. Leigha Anderson, a Microsoft team member said at the keynote address that the new tablet is to be called “Mix 8”.
This news confirms that Acer won’t be feeling alone “up there”, as Lenovo will soon be joining them in this segment. Anderson was quoted in saying that the Lenovo Mix 8 would feature a 3G wireless support, slim-design and will be coming with a pen and folio.
Geeks are still not sure about the chip that would be fitted in the tablet, but you can expect some version of the Intel Atom processor. It might be the soon-to-be launched Bay Trail chip or the present Clover Trail design.
This is just a start as you can easily expect a number of computer giants to be launching their own products in this category. It will be quite fascinating to see how these tablets stack up in regards to their features, hardware and definitely, their price.

The speculation is that there is no confirmation of the handset equipped with a 5 inch screen but it could be somewhere in between 4.5 to 5.5 inches. It can be assumed as a 5 inch, as the 1080p mobile panels are available only in 5 inch, 440 ppi from Sharp and JDI.
The screenshots indicate its customised Lenovo Android UI (User Interface) on 1080p Full High Definition display. It also features dual-sim support, connected to 3G CDMA2000 network of China Telecom and 2G GSM, a network of China Mobile. The device may run either Jelly Bean or Ice Cream Sandwich.
