There is surely no shortage of Windows 8 tablets anymore. Many major tech companies have their own models already on the market. But when it comes to Windows 8 tablets with smaller screens, then there aren't many options one may choose from. Toshiba aims to fill that gap with the Encore – a low-cost Windows tablet that's compact enough to be held with a single hand. Or is it? Well, kind of...

People always find ways to whine. It's not RT, but still there is something to whine. Never gets satisfied.

Actually it is the latest generation Atom, not last generation, stupid article. That actually is worth using.
Including the desktop mode on this is mostly pointless but whatever.

2GB RAM, 8mp camera, intel atom processor and windows 8.1 (not RT) at $330 is a great deal actually considering there is still not that many 8 inch windows tablet.

Microsoft's 'Surface Mini" is coming out soon and will be around the same size I hope that it uses the Nexus 7's screen which has a higher resolution then then this Tablet's small screen.
the small Windows 8.1 Tablets absolutely need high resolution screens so a person can read
and edit word documents easier than you would on this tablet. still this Windows 8.1 Tablet does one really good thing. "It's affordable" allowing people to get their hands on a windows 8 tablet and more apps are being added to the windows 8 modern UI/AKA metro tiles store.
