Lenovo ends sales of 8-inch Windows tablets in North America

Lenovo ends sales of 8-inch Windows tablets in North America

The Microsoft Windows operating system rules the desktop PC world but this is not true when it comes to tablets despite all efforts by the US software maker. In a bid to improve Windows-based tablets the Redmond-based company made Windows for tablets free but only for devices that have displays smaller than 9 inches. Unfortunately this tactic seems to have failed in North America as one of the largest sellers of Windows-based tablets – Lenovo – ends sales of certain Windows tablets on the North American market.

The Lenovo models that are to be removed from sales are ThinkPad 8 and Miix 2 8. Both models come with 8-inch displays and meet Microsoft’s requirements for using a free version of Windows. The tablets that have not been sold will be moved to other markets that include Brazil, China and Japan where demand for small-sized tablets is stronger.

Right now US customers can still purchase these models online for USD 399 (ThinkPad 8) and USD 299 (Miix 2 8).
