Vizio wasn't the only company yanking weak-performing devices. After we spied a hole in Lenovo's online offerings, the company confirmed to PCWorld that it is no longer selling small-screen Windows tablets like the ThinkPad 8 and Miix 2 in the U.S., citing a lack of consumer interest. It's 10-inches and up from here on out for Lenovo.
"In North America, we’re seeing stronger interest in the larger screen sizes for Windows," said Raymond Gorman, a Lenovo spokesman.
Sure, Lenovo's slates were pricier and generally more business-focused than most tiny tablets, but it's still a bit worrying to hear the largest PC maker in the world say there's NO interest in its small Windows slates.
Update: Lenovo has since 'clarified its position,' saying it eventually plans to roll out more 8-inch Windows tablets. "We will continue to sell both 8 and 10 inch Windows tablets in both the U.S. and non-U.S markets." They're still gone for now, though.
