Following news reporting Lenovo's plans to abandon the Microsoft Windows tablet market of devices 10-inches or smaller, the Chinese electronics manufacturer issued a new statement. Even though current supply is being sold on foreign markets, Lenovo will release new smaller-screen products in the United States again:




Here is what the company said in a statement: "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 in both the U.S. and non-U.S. markets."


The tablet market is a fierce competition between Apple and Samsung, but there is still room for other companies to grab attention.
