Toshiba adds the WT310 – a business-minded tablet

toshtabklet.jpgWhat’s the difference between a standard tablet and one designed for business users? Toshiba has just unveiled the WT310 tablet, a touchscreen device it says is designed for business professionals on the move.

The tablet boasts an 11.6inch HD screen and offers users multiple ways of interacting with the Windows 8 Pro operating system.

Tosh says that the business element is the way it is built to optimise performance for mobile workers, so that includes a touch sensitive display and Windows 8 Pro, so users can quickly swipe, scroll and tap programs or documents.

The tablet also comes with a DigitizerPen – so users can take handwritten notes in meeting minutes or seminars. It comes with software that converts the notes into text documents for editing or sharing.

Also included are a range of security and data management features notably 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.

The WT310 can also be maintained remotely by a company’s IT team, thanks to the Intel® Active Management Technology on selected models.

It also has a pretty comprehensive suite of connection options and features Wi-Fi® b/g/n or a/g/b/n, as well as support to HSPA+/LTE newtyorks and Bluetooth® 4.0.

It will be available shortly. There’s no details on price yet.
