Lenovo starts selling Miix 10.1-inch Windows 8 tablet

After being first announced back in June, Lenovo's newest Windows 8 tablet, the Miix is now on sale in the U.S., even as Microsoft gets ready to officially launch Windows 8.1 later this year.

The Lenovo website has the full hardware specs for that the 1.28 pound Miix tablet, which include:

  • Display: 10.1 inches with 1366x768 resolution
  • Processor: Intel Atom Z2760 processor-1.80GHz
  • Memory: 2GB of RAM
  • Storage: 64 GB
  • Camera: 1 megapixel

The camera also has software that will allow users to move their hands in order to flip through web pages, adjust the tablet's audio and more. The Miix's price is $599, but Lenovo does offer the option to purchase a keyboard that can be attached to the Miix that also serves as a stand for the tablet. The price for the keyboard is not yet available.

Microsoft showed off an upcoming 8-inch Windows 8 tablet from Lenovo at its Computex press event in June. The tablet, which Microsoft called the "Mix" at the time, has still not been officially announced from Lenovo. It's possible that the company is waiting for Microsoft to finish work on the RTM build of Windows 8.1 before launching its smaller tablet.
