Lenovo does not only make great looking desktops, as they also churn out notebooks and in more recent times, tablets for the road warrior who simply cannot live without some sort of computing device or another. Oh yeah, not forgetting smartphones – Lenovo does those, too, with the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro being the most recent model to have been announced. Well, back to the tablet market – the name IdeaTab S8 has been making its rounds over at the FCC as well as different sites in recent memory, and even additional details on the Lenovo IdeaTab S8-50 has arrived today, thanks to a certain Merimobiles that is already taking pre-orders for this particular tablet.
The pre-orders would cost you a low, low price point of $0. Yup, you read that right – although the Lenovo IdeaTab S8-50 does come with a recommended retail price of $300, it can be pre-ordered for $0. This does not guarantee you a free device, make no mistake about it, but rather, it points as an indicator to the retailer so that they are able to gauge the general market’s interest in such a device.
The Lenovo IdeaTab S8-50 is touted to arrive with an 8” display, an Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail processor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an 8MP shooter at the back with a 1.6MP front facing camera, GPS, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of internal memory, with Android 4.4 KitKat as the mobile operating system of choice.
