Toshiba shows Windows 8 tablet for business users, UK release soon

updated 08:46 am EDT, Thu May 2, 2013

Plastic-cased tablet houses 11.6-inch touchscreen display, DigitizerPen

A Windows 8 tablet aimed at business professionals has been unveiled by Toshiba, shortly after the company presented its high-resolution Kirabook. The WT310 tablet houses a 11.6-inch 1080p anti-glare display with gesture-enabled touchscreen controls, and an accompanying DigitizerPen as an additional input option.

Housed in a plastic casing said to protect the internals from drops and shocks, the WT310 has an unnamed Intel processor inside, and eschews the hard disk as storage in favor of an SSD with unannounced capacity. Ports for HDMI, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet and an SD card slot surround the WT310, while connectivity is also provided over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and HSPA+/LTE.

Intel Anti-Theft, software to help prevent unauthorized access, and the Trusted Platform Module are included for data security, with Intel Active Management included to help IT managers maintain the roaming devices. Professionals will also be able to use the included Intel Wireless Display to transfer content to a compatible TV or projector wirelessly, for simpler set-up for presentations.

Toshiba is lining up the WT310 for a UK release sometime in the second quarter, but has not revealed pricing details. A US release could take place shortly afterwards.
