Toshiba Launches First Windows 8.1 Tablet 'Encore' for $329.99

Sep 5 2013, 6:21am CDT | by , in News | Tablets

Toshiba has made a solid effort at creating its first Windows 8.1 tablet. But just how far $329.99 Toshiba Encore manages to measure up to the iPad Mini is a matter of conjecture.

Toshiba Launches First Windows 8.1 Tablet 'Encore' for $329.99

At the IFA event Toshiba tries to prove once and for all that “Small is Beautiful”. This philosophy was reflected in its Encore Tablet. Built with a little help from Microsoft, the 8 inch tablet contains an Intel processor along with a Windows 8.1 update. The question is how does this product fare amidst the cutthroat competition? 

Well, the Acer Iconia W3 has an absolutely horrid display unit as compared to this baby. Toshiba Encore’s panel has a 1280 x 800 resolution. And while it affords easy viewing, the picture is not one of crystal clear definition. The iPad Mini may have a lower resolution yet it is clear as the light of day that Apple comes out on top in this game of tablet comparability. 

The stuff from Toshiba is also bigger than the iPad Mini. There are many small faults and shortcomings that add up in the end. However, Toshiba plans on fine-tuning some of the features before the final shipping procedure. One thing which needs work is the speed which is rather slow. This may be due to the CPU or the GPU. 

The Encore carries in its wake a no-cost copy of Office Home & Student 2013. A Micro HDMI Port is there too for full connection. It’ll most probably arrive in November for $329.99. With 32 GB of built-in storage capacity it is the first Windows 8 inch tablet. And the variety of models it comes in includes: the Encore, the Satellite Click and the Satellite NB15t.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
