Toshiba has unveiled a new 2-in-1 Window tablet with an 8.9 inch display and a detachable keyboard. It’s called the Toshiba Click Mini, and it features a full HD IPS display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and up to 16 hours of battery life (when you use the tablet and keyboard together).
Unfortunately Toshiba has no plans to offer the Click Mini in the United States, but it should be available in Europe in the first quarter of 2015 for about 299 Euros.
The tablet has a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of solid state storage.
It runs Windows 8.1 with Bing software, comes with a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal, and Toshiba will offer models in white or gold, although only the white version will be available at first, with the gold model following later this year.
The tablet has a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi Bluetooth 4.0, a micro HDMI port, micro USB port, and microSD card slot as well as a headset jack. There’s also a full-sized USB port and full-sized SD card reader in the keyboard.
Toshiba’s tablet measures less than 0.4 inches thick and weighs just over a pound. Add the keyboard dock and you have a laptop that’s about 0.8 inches thick and 2.2 pounds.
Overall the Satellite Click Mini looks like a pretty solid little portable 2-in-1 device, although the keyboard and touchpad are pretty cramped. Still, it’s nice to see that the Asus Transformer Book Chi T90 isn’t the only option in the 8.9 inch Windows 2-in-1 tablet space.
