Best Smallest Windows Tablets of 2014

By Adrian Cruce

The technology used in the case of the latest tech devices has been greatly improved offering users the required efficiency with unique features. However, nowadays, manufacturers are not focusing on the speed of their product – they are concentrating on ways in which to minimize the size as per the hype on the market.

Many such gadgets have been introduced on the market in the last few years and can be easily carried on as you perform your tasks on the go. For example, a tablet does not require peripherals to input commands or extract any output. This means giving people less to deal with and ultimately switching them from laptops to tablets.

We have seen constant variations in new models of Windows tablets which include the introduction of the atom powered battery which means having the ability to use it a whole day without recharging it. Although manufacturers like Dell, Asus and Lenovo are in competition with many other manufacturers, they never disappoint their customers in terms of portability and handy sizes featured by their tablets.

Slim Designs

The slim design not only makes it comfortable to hold but also adds a whole new sleek look to the outlook of the tab. Following are some of the numerous remarkable devices that run on Windows:

  • Asus Vivo Tab Note 8
  • Lenovo Thinkpad 8
  • Dell Venue 8 pro
  • Dell Venue 11 pro
  • Lenovo Miix 2 8

All of the above provide top notch performance but Lenovo Thinkpad 8 is more loved by the people because of its high speed, maximum portability and especially the small featured size. Due to the minimal reports of it being frozen, more and more people are turning towards Lenovo and have started looking up to it as a reliable tab manufacturer.

The Thinkpad 8 and the Miix 2 8 have become so popular in the US that all of these devices have been sold out leaving Lenovo with no small-screen tablets to sell in the United States at one point. Though, they have stated that they will soon be back on the market with both 8 and 10-inch tablets. A Lenovo representative reported that the demand for their Thinkpad 8 is even greater in other regions such as China, Japan and Brazil.

To be honest, the main reason of the success of the Thinkpad was not the features it has to offer; it was being the first one to have a small screen which was apparently what people wanted at that moment. Lenovo understood the need of its market and was wise enough to introduce it without any delay. Other manufacturers such as Acer, Dell, and Toshiba followed the ongoing trend with their Iconia, Venue and Encore series but could not get the response that Lenovo did.

All in all, the point remains that the great majority of people are no longer looking for devices that are larger in size. What they want is something efficient and of a size that fits perfectly in their hands, pockets and most importantly, goes with their personality. It is suggestible to thoroughly research online reviews before buying any of the aforementioned tablets; most of the reviews are posted by live users who have and continue to use these products.
