Toshiba’s Windows 8 tablet aims for business users

The business market is the target of Toshiba of Canada’s latest entry in the tablet space, the WT310 Windows 8 Pro business tablet.

Launched this week, the tablet is designed for business users, and features an 11.6” Full HD touchscreen display running Windows 8 Pro, meaning it can run any Windows application that can run on a desktop or laptop.

“It’s a full PC user experience,” said Yuji Wakabayshi, B2B product manager with Toshiba of Canada. “It has a digitizer you can use as an extension of your mouse in case you want to be a little bit more accurate, and it does everything your finger would.”

The tablet has a silver casing created from high-stiffness resin, and can also support the 32 or 64-bit versions of Windows 7. Users can choose between Intel’s latest Core i5 and i7 processors, and 128GB or 256GB of SSD storage, along with 4GB of RAM. It features a TPM and biometrics for enterprise-grade security, and weights 1.87 lbs. measuring about half an inch thin. It’s available now, starting at $1,349.99.

“The portability and processing power of the WT310 tablet will help business users achieve new levels of mobile productivity” said Wakabayashi. “Offering professionals the flexibility to work remotely and share information seamlessly on the go is part of the evolving Canadian business landscape. At the same time, corporate IT departments are demanding durable, secure, manageable devices to meet those needs.”
