London, UK, 2nd May 2013 – Toshiba UK today announces the launch of the WT310 tablet, a powerful touchscreen device designed for business professionals on the move. To keep up with the busy professional, the WT310 comes packed with the latest Intel® Core™ processor and a range of features to ensure a fast and productive mobile working experience. With its 29.5cm (11.6") Full HD screen and a wide range of connectivity features, the WT310 offers users multiple ways of interacting with the Windows 8 Pro operating system for additional convenience.
A tablet that means business
Optimised for business use, the WT310 includes a comprehensive range of features designed to aid mobile workers, no matter what job is at hand. Featuring a touch sensitive display and Windows 8 Pro, users can quickly swipe, scroll and tap programs or documents. Users can also make handwritten notes using a bundled DigitizerPen – perfect for meeting minutes or seminars – while advanced software converts the notes into text documents for further editing or sharing with colleagues.
Advanced security and data management
Using Toshiba's quality and reliability testing, the WT310 has been designed to ensure it can comfortably handle intensive daily use. The resilient plastic coating of the WT310 ensures the internal components are protected from damage in the event of accidental drops, knocks or even heavy pressure. Resistant to movement, the internal solid state drive (SSD) provides additional storage reliability, so it's perfect for those long-haul business trips.
A range of advanced security and data management features are pre-installed on the tablet, including Intel® Anti-Theft – a software package that reduces the risk of unauthorised access – and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which safeguards locally stored critical data. IT managers can also monitor, maintain, repair and upgrade the WT310 remotely, thanks to the Intel® Active Management Technology on selected models, ensuring mobile professionals are always running the latest system updates.
Multiple connectivity options make it easy to output content on to a large screen or projector, ideal for meetings and presentations. An HDMI® micro port allows content to be displayed on a larger Full HD screen without any loss of detail, while the Intel® Wireless Display allows users to transfer multimedia to a compatible TV set or projectorwithout the need for cables.
For more intensive writing tasks, an optional docking cradle features additional ports for connecting to a keyboard, mouse or external hard drive. Additional HDMI® ports provide extra flexibility for outputting content and the full-size USB 3.0 port and SD™ card slot allow for storage to be extended if necessary. Furthermore, the cradle's Gigabit LAN port ensures fast and safe access to a corporate network.
The WT310 features Wi-Fi® b/g/n or a/g/b/n, as well as support to HSPA+/LTE networks for fast and reliable wireless broadband connectivity, and data transfer between other mobile devices such as smartphones is quick thanks to Bluetooth® 4.0 as standard.

I need an i7 with 8GB of ram. If this has that and they make some kind of keyboard like a Transformer has or the Ipad keyboard/case that Logitech makes, I'd be very interested; more interested still if it had 13.3" screen.

What is a standard for Full HD 1920x1080 for 5" to 80" TV. My standard is 400 ppi not 50 ppi Full HD TV.

Sounds similar to the transformer book, which so far sounds like the best of all the widows tablets. 13.3 inch, FHD, core i7, 628GB of storage, keyboard dock and a Crapton of ports. Don't think anyone has anything to compete with that right now

I feel very soon we actually might say good bye to our conventional computers and adopt these super compact machines! Few years from now laptop computer will be obsolete!

These are going to be the future laptops with docking station at work and in home. Intel knows that, that's why they made the Haswell from the scratch just for ultra-book. Which will eventually power these machines.
