Toshiba follows trend and shows off a Windows 8 tablet hybrid

Toshiba follows trend and shows off a Windows 8 tablet hybrid
Not to be overshadowed at IFA by almost every other manufacturer that has a Windows 8 tablet/laptop hybrid to show off, Toshiba wants to get right on the wave of Windows 8 hybrids that are coming to the market soon. The question has become less of what manufacturer will have a Windows 8 tablet hybrid device, but rather what mechanism will be used to switch the tablet into a laptop and back. 

This one from Toshiba, officially the Satellite U925t Tablet-Ultrabook Hybrid, is a slider convertible, meaning the keyboard slides down from behind the display to shift between tablet mode and laptop mode. The U925t comes in at around the same size that we've seen for other tablet hybrids at 3.2 lbs (1.45 kg), .78 inches thick (19.8 mm), and has a 12.5 inch display.

The device also has an "HD" front camera (likely around 1.3MP), a 3MP rear camera (because that's useful), and USB 3.0 ports (something we're legitimately excited about.)

Nice, but I prefer my tablets slim. Otherwise I just use my laptop.

so toshiba is taking a different approach than the rest...while it is nice to be unique ..and this would save the pain of finding a place for the keyboard when the tablet is not docked ...still at tablet mode u will only have a heavy and thick device and wont be as gd in portability as the others which is the main point of having a tablet

It looks like a prototype. It's big and ugly. Doesn't stand a chance against its dozen other competitors.

I am completely disappointed with this tablet. The camera is of only 1.3MP and what about the internet facility and other features like sound quality and all.
