Toshiba focuses on Wacom pen with Encore 2 Write Tablets

Tags: , , , , ,

Pen-driven tablets; They’ve been a staple of the pro-mobile market for many years for some very good reasons and Toshiba just might have the right idea with their new Encore 2 Write 8 and Write 10 tablets. The new tablets use Wacom technology to address a number of important digitizer features that recent tablets have lacked.


Wacom, pressure sensitivity, responsiveness and hover are critical when it comes to quality digitizer input. The ASUS Vivotab Note 8 had a good go at it but it wasn’t perfect. The Surface Pro tablets do a better job but they’re expensive. At $349 for an 8-inch tablet and $399 for a 10-inch tablet the new Encore 2 Write products are unique, if everything works as it should. Hands-on at CES seem to indicate that it does.

HP Pro X2 610 G1 (4)

As I continue my review of the HP Pro X2 410 G1 [first impressions] I’m acutely aware of what’s going on around it this week. The Surface Pro 3 and new products and announcements at Computex have us all thinking about larger-screen tablets and 2-in-1s. One competitor was from HP themselves as Microsoft held up the Pro X2 612 on stage at their keynote.  It offers a full HD screen, SSD and Wacom options that aren’t available with the X2 410. It also offers a range of CPUs that start with a Celeron (4th gen Core) and go up to Core i5.

ASUS Vivotab Note 8 M80TA 8-inch Windows 8 Tablet Coming

Tags: , , ,



The ASUS Vivotab Note 8 is coming. Spotted in a number of places around the net, including the ASUS website, it’s pretty much confirmed. Mobilegeeks have chased down the specifications of this Windows 8.1 Baytrail tablet that will start at $299. The Wacom digitizer stands out.

  • Display: 8-inch IPS. 1280×800 resolution
  • Touchscreen: 10-finger capacitive, Wacom-Digitizer with Stylus (Possible option)
  • OS: Windows 8.1 with Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student
  • Processor: 1.33 – 1,86GHz Intel Atom Z3740
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Internal storage: 32 or 64 Gigabyte
  • Connectivity: MicroSD, MicroUSB, 3.5mm audio.
  • Wireless: WLAN a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • Camera: 5Mp rear, 1,2 Mp rear

  • Battery: 3950mAh, 15Wh
  • Colour: Black
  • Size: 220,9 x 133,8 x 10,95 mm.

With price, weight and specifications the same as most of the 8-inch tablets one wonders why ASUS are coming so late to the market but the Wacom digitizer will be a big attraction for many. Apart from that it’s down to quality, availability, accessories and offers.

Based on the content that ASUS have prepared, one can expect the ASUS Vivotab Note 8 very soon.
