Lenovo and HP bring new Windows devices to market

Lenovo and HP are among the many Microsoft partners that have announced new Windows devices at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Lenovo debuted its ideapad MIIX 300 – an eight-inch tablet running Windows 8.1, which comes with a free one-year subscription to Microsoft Office.

Powered by an Intel Atom processor, the tablet has an IPS WUXGA screen, up to 64GB of internal eMMC storage, a microSD card reader for transferring media, wi-fi and bluetooth, dual cameras and long battery life.

HP, meanwhile, launched a 13.3-inch convertible PC – the Spectre x360. The ultra-thin PC weighs in at 3.3 pounds and can transition between modes – from notebook to tent to tablet mode – thanks to its innovative hinges that contain a set of three spiral gears for synchronised and precise movement.

In addition to its high-resolution touch display, Intel Core i5 and i7-powered processors and 12.5 hours battery life, the HP Spectre x360 includes a full-sized 1.5 millimetre travel keyboard and a wide glass touchpad for improved day-to-day usability.

The Lenovo ideapad MIIX 300 will go on sale in July, costing from US$149. The HP Spectre x360 is already available to buy in the US with prices starting at US$899.99.
