Santosh Varghese, General Manager of Digital Products and Services at Toshiba Gulf FZE, says, “The combined power of Windows 8.1 and Intel Atom makes the Toshiba Encore WT8 an ultra-slim, high performance tablet. We designed it as an all-round, portable companion for consumers that demand the best in both work and play.”
Built for Entertainment
Through its eight-inch HFFS high brightness display, the Toshiba Encore WT8 is an ideal device to enjoy movies while on the move. Because the high-quality screen offers a wide-viewing angle, visuals remain vivid under different lighting conditions.
Additionally, through the Xbox SmartGlass feature, users may choose to transform the tablet screen into a second screen for the Xbox 360 or the Xbox One. With its high-performance processor, the Toshiba Encore WT8 delivers a console-quality gaming experience.
Ample storage of up to 64GB allows users to store an extensive library of apps, games and multimedia files.
At only 10.7mm thick and 450g light, the Toshiba Encore WT8 delivers efficient performance. The ergonomic design and positioning of its speakers, microphones and cameras enables comfortable one-hand use during voice and video calls, without affecting clarity and performance. It features dual microphones with beam forming technology, and dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi® with MIMO technology.
Preinstalled with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 program, the Toshiba Encore WT8 lets you access Office applications to accomplish documents and homework.
The Toshiba-developed app, TruCapture, easily copies whiteboard content and paper documents via the tablet’s built-in camera and it automatically removes borders from photos, straightens distortion, reduces glare and brightens contrast.
In addition to being conveniently thin and light, the Toshiba Encore WT8 is equipped with InstantGo technology that empowers it to go live from standby mode in merely 0.3 seconds.
InstantGo also syncs all content automatically and continually, so it always displays the latest updates and feeds from the user’s email, Office documents and social media accounts.
Along with comprehensive connectivity options that include micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports as well as 2.0MP front and 8.0MP rear cameras, the Toshiba Encore WT8 is also equipped with GPS for navigation.
