Information coming in from IFA…

Toshiba just announced what could be the first Bay Trail tablet. ‘Latest’ Atom technology wasn’t detailed because it’s ‘so new’ so we can assume Bay Trail I think.

  • 299 Euro start price.
  • Full Office included
  • ‘Newest’ Atom with LP DDR3 (Bay  Trail?)
  • 2GB RM
  • Array mic
  • 2 cameras (8MP)
  • 1280×800 screen
  • Micro HDMI
  • Micro USB 2.0



Stay tuned while we find out more and get some hands-on.

    Good price with the full Office. Looking forward to your hands on. The screen looks dull – low nits?

    To me, the most intriguing product so far at IFA is the Sony Tap 11. A full W8 at Surface size, with an 11.6 inch screen and 512GB SSD. Only doubt is the N-trig pen. Will it work for drawing? What about sensitivity? Is there software support for drawing with the N-trig? Or is it mainly for text entering?

    Quad core Bay Trail confirmed.

    479 grams. A bit on the heavy side. What can be expected in terms of autonomy?
