At IFA 2013, Berlin, Toshiba has gone ahead to make three important launches, a tablet, a detachable PC and also a 11-inch laptop.
The Toshiba Encore happens to be one of the first 8-inch windows tablet's to hit the market since Acer's W3. Like the competing devices from Acer, it runs on an Atom processor, however, it has a different chipset, a quad-core Bay Trail unit. The device has a 1,280 x 800 display and 32GB of built-in storage with options to expand via MicroSD. There is an 8MP camera in the rear and a 2MP camera in thre front, apart from a dual-array beam-forming microphone, and Dolby Digital audio technology with dialogue enhancement.
According to Engadget, Toshiba has worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that the tab works seamlessly with Windows 8.1 and also to win it Skype certification for video and audio chats. The device should find a spot in store shelves in November with a price tag of about Rs.22,000 in International markets.
Moving on to the Satellite Click detachable PC, it happens to be an idea that we've seen before in several products. When docked into its keyboard, it's a machine for productivity and when you undock it, you're left with a tablet thats great for everything else. While the keyboard comes with an additional battery, the tablet itself contains a 500GB hard disk. The two-piece unit runs Windows 8 and consists of an 13.3-inch, multi-touch IPS display.
The Click is powered bya dual-core AMD A4 processor (from AMD's new Temash family) and 4GB of DDR3/1600 memory. There's also a built-in webcam, gyroscope, and accelerometer, and I/O ports that include micro HDMI and micro USB.
And then finally, we have the laptop. This tiny, but teeming machine uses a new Celeron N2810 dual-core processor. Weighing at a feather-lite at 1.5 kilos, the devices has a nice 11.6 inch touch screen, a 500 GB HDD, HDMI, USB 3.0, and an 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter. The unit should be available at retailers in Novermber.
