Expert review by : Xiomara Blanco (

Lenovo Tab S8 is a slim and affordable 8-incher


Starting at only $200 (which converts to about £120, or AU$215), the Lenovo Tab S8 packs a promising list of mid-range specs in a slim and lightweight package. Announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin, the 8-inch tablet is scheduled to hit stores in September.

The 8-inch Lenovo tablet will also be available with high-speed 4G LTE capabilities, but more information on availability has yet to be revealed. Check back with CNET when we get our hands on the Lenovo Tab S8 for a more in-depth look.
