Toshiba unveils Portégé Z10t Windows 8 ultrabook and tablet hybrid

Toshiba Portege Z10t

Toshiba has unveiled a hybrid ultrabook running Windows 8, which can be used as either a tablet or as a touchscreen laptop when combined with its keyboard dock.

Set to ship later in this quarter of 2013, the Portégé Z10t is Toshiba's first hybrid device, which it describes as a detachable ultrabook. It is similar to other Windows 8 models such as Fujitsu's Stylistic Q702.

The system runs either Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro and features an 11.6in HD touchscreen, while its dock provides a full Qwerty keyboard plus a touchpad and a Trackpoint controller (called Accupoint by Toshiba) embedded in the midst of the keyboard.

However, Toshiba is being coy about the specifications of the device. It is based on Intel Core processors, but the firm has not disclosed whether this is Core i5 or Core i7, and declined to detail the memory size, or which solid state drive (SSD) configurations will be available.

Toshiba has not even disclosed the weight of the Portégé Z10t, or whether the keyboard dock contains an extra battery to extend its working life while away from the office. However, the slim appearance of the keyboard would seem to rule this out.

What is known is that the device supports HSPA/LTE mobile broadband in addition to Wi-Fi. The tablet section of the Portégé Z10t has USB 3.0 ports and a microSD slot for flash memory, while the keyboard adds extra USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and VGA outputs and a gigabit Ethernet port for connecting to a LAN. A digitiser pen for handwriting input is optional.

Toshiba is touting the Portégé Z10t for business users, with an on-board trusted platform module (TPM), Intel vPro support and Intel Anti-Theft technology.

Pricing for the Portégé Z10t was also not disclosed and will be announced closer to the availability date, Toshiba said.
