and file sharing.
Engineered to give users the most from their mobile device without
sacrificing portability, the Lenovo TAB S8 marks Lenovo's first 8-inch
Android tablet powered by an Intel processor. Available with the Intel
Atom Z3745 Processor (News - Alert) with Intel® Burst Performance Technology, the TAB
S8 dynamically matches processing power to the task at hand in order to
maximize battery life without compromising speed in a thin and light
design. The TAB S8 is just 0.65 pounds and 0.31 inches thin, nearly as

(based on Intel® XMMTM 7160) and Wi-Fi for data connectivity, up to
seven hours of battery life to keep users cord-free, and 64-bit
