Lenovo Miix 8 smiles for the camera: an 8" Windows 8 tablet in a slim package
Acer's Iconia W3 was the first 8" Windows 8 tablet announced, but it won't stay single for long. A Lenovo 8-incher has was demonstrated at Microsoft's events during Computex, with the first pictures showing a two-tone body, going by the name Miix 8. "The tablet is slim and light, has a gorgeous screen, will have 3G connectivity, and many accessories such as a folio and pen.

We also saw a 7-incher demonstrated, but it was just a proof of concept, rather than something that will make it on the shelves. Also, it seems that Lenovo might be using the Miix branding for its family of Windows 8 gear, like Samsung uses ATIV now. Microsoft already threw us a bone, announcing that each of this small Win 8 slates will ship with a free copy of Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note, so we can't wait for the most important announcement - the price of these new Windows tablets.
