Toshiba has launched their new DynaPad, a Windows 10 2-in-1 hybrid. It highly resembles the Microsoft’s Surface tablet, which was among the first to introduce this hybrid factor to mainstream. Now looks like every other company is following Microsoft.
The first thing that is said to be different is the extra-special stylus that comes with the large screen tablet. Compatible with Microsoft’s Office & Edge apps, the Wacom Active TruPen is capable of 2,048 levels of pressure. Moreover, you also get some Toshiba suite of business apps for any more activities.
Partnered with Wacom, the stylus made for this tablet replicates feeling of writing on paper with a real pen. The device was sized such as it would resemble a notebook when attached to its physical keyboard. It certainly isn’t the only 2-in-1 device with a pen on the market but claims that it would feel more natural to the form factor of notebooks than its competitors.
Sporting a Full HD display resolution, the screen on DynaPad is an anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint coating. In terms of the specifications, the device features a 1.44 GHz Atom processor and 4GB of RAM. It may not be as powerful as the new Surface Pro 4, but it certainly seems little less bulky.
Without the keyboard, the device weighs around 569 grams and measures 6.6mm in thickness. While with the keyboard attached, the device weighs around 996 grams and measure 14.9mm in thickness. It might still be the slimmest hybrids, the 2-in-1 tablet powered by the Window 10.
It would be interesting to see this head as soon as possible to the other region, although, that train would arrive next year as the device is going to take time to go on sale in the homeland. Expect the availability of this hybrid tablet sometime in December.
But you can pre-order it in Japan starting today, which is should keep them enthusiasts momentum. It is priced at ¥130,000 before taxes, which converts around $1080 in dollars. I’d say, it just might be the right candidate to give heated competition to others.
