When it rains, it pours; and for Microsoft, the hits just keep on coming. Following the announcement of drastic job cuts (18,000!) comes the news that hardware partner Lenovo will stop selling small-screen Windows tablets in the United States.
Lenovo, the world’s biggest PC vendor, cited lack of demand as the reason for pulling the 8.3-inch ThinkPad 8 and 8-inch Miix 2 from American shelves. Lenovo will continue to offer the models in other regions where they are more in demand.
