Please PA, it isn't a 64-bit *product* without a 64-bit OS installed. Thus, it isn't a 64-bit *tablet*, but a tablet with a 64-bit *chip*.

"Up until now, Lenovo only paired Intel's SoCs with Microsoft's operating systems, either Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1" WP 8.1?? Lenovo haven't even produce a single windows phone,do anyone else noticed this?

That's right, but we are talking about tablets here. As you can see =>http://www.phonearena.com/phones/full#/phones/full/manufacturer/Lenovo/?f[53]=1612&f[120][]=1292 , all of Lenovo's Android-powered tablets until the Tab S8 have relied on Qualcomm, MediaTek, NVIDIA, or TI for the SoC on board.
