Are you yearning for a swanky new 8-inch tablet? Of course you are. The 8-inch swarm of Windows 8.1 tablets are making waves these days and now Lenovo is stepping up to the plate. Their IdeaTab Miix2, at least the 32 GB version, is now available to order at http://Amazon.com. Do you want it tomorrow? Order it ASAP with next-day shipping.
The 64 GB version is still not in stock and ironically, we can’t even find the Miix2 on Lenovo’s site any longer (maybe we’re just missing it) for order or pre-order.
So how does the Miix2 compare to say the Dell Venue 8 Pro? That’s a good question. Both have solid 1280 x 800 IPS displays, 32 GB or 64 GB variants, microSD expansion, micro USB port, 2GB of RAM and a 1.8 GHz Quad-Core Atom processor.
The Miix2 though sports an 8 MP rear camera (versus 5 MP for the Dell) and a 2 MP front camera (versus 1.2 MP for the Dell). The Miix 2 also features the unique Veriface Face Recognition Software, so you can just login with your mug and the Miix 2 also weighs less (0.77lb versus 0.87lb for the Dell). Finally, the Dell is a matte black with a soft-touch paint while the Lenovo is a silver-metal.
All in all, both tablets seem excellent, though the Miix 2, dollar for dollar, may edge out the Venue 8 Pro.
Do you want to know our thoughts? Give us a few days as our Miix2 may show up tomorrow and we’ll do a side-by-side with our Dell. For now, you can head to our unboxing and first impressions of the Dell to get an idea.
