Tangentially, see Intel is about to drive another stake through the heart of the tablet market (Business Insider)
"While many aspects of this device will remind you of Surface Pro 3, Lenovo has also gone beyond that and have added several additional enhancements:
- An extra full size USB port for a total of two (one 2.0 and one 3.0)
- SIM card slot with optional LTE
- Windows Hello compatible camera but to be fair we expect to see that same camera on the Surface Pro 4
- A multi position hinge using their unique watchband hinge from the Yoga 3 Pro device
This is why Microsoft built Surface - Lenovo Miix 700 | Surface content from SuperSite for Windows
All of those additional enhancements are included starting at $699. The innovation and going beyond the expected norms for what a Windows device should be is clearly visible in the Miix 700 and it is good to see.
- A premium detachable keyboard, that also serves as a cover for the devices screen, and is made of what appears to be faux leather and has a larger keyboard layout and trackpad. Did I mention it is included in the cost of the device and not a separate accessory like the Surface Type Cover?
When the tech press begins calling your device a “Surface Killer” then you are on the right track and I do not believe Microsoft is objecting to it one tiny bit because that is why they built Surface – to trigger innovation."
