Lenovo issued a clarification press release after media started to report Lenovo would stop selling small screened Windows-based tablets in the U.S. due to low demand.
We will continue to bring new Windows devices to market across different screen sizes, including a new 8-inch tablet and 10-inch tablet coming this holiday. Our model mix changes as per customer demand, and although we are no longer selling ThinkPad 8 in the U.S., and we have sold out of Miix 8-inch, we are not getting out of the small-screen Windows tablet business as was reported by the media.
Many sites started claiming sales were poor and so Lenovo was getting out of the U.S. Windows-based sales. Lenovo’s clarification will be understood in light of Microsoft’s quarterly report due July 22.
