Toshiba WT310 fits an ultrabook into 11.6" Full HD tablet with Windows 8 Pro, is mum on the price

While Microsoft is on the cusp of introducing the second generation of Surface tablets, there's not exactly a glut of powerful Windows 8 slates in the meantime, so Toshiba decided to fill the void with the pro-oriented WT310 tablet.

It boasts an 11.6" Full HD display, which is good, but also an Intel Core CPU of undisclosed kind and a DigitizerPen as an added input option. There is a USB 3.0 port, if you were wondering, plus an HDMI one, as well as SD card slo. Besides the standard connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and optional 4G HSPA+ / LTE radios, we also get Intel's WiDi standard for wireless streaming.

A docking station with extra ports will be available, along with a bunch of enterprise-oriented niceties like a Trusted Platform Module, Active Management Technology and Anti-Theft software for IT department management.

The Toshiba WT310 tablet is as compact as an 11-incher with Intel Core CPU and Full HD screen can get, at 9 x 7.5 x 0.5 inches (229 x 189 x 12.4mm), weighing 29 ounces (825g), for those keeping track. Release is slated for later this quarter when the important details left out, like price, CPU type and storage capacity, will all be revealed.

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.
