Toshiba has a few Android tablets under its belt, but the company’s latest 10 inch tablet runs Windows 7 Professional. It’s coming soon to Japan and it’s aimed at enterprise customers.
The Toshiba Dynabook WT301/D has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intle Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state disk.
It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and has a VGA front-facing camera and 1.3MP rear camera, stereo speakers, and USB and micro HDMI ports. The tablet will also come with business software including Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.
Toshiba plans to launch the new tablet in Japan in January. There’s no word on how much it will cost or if or when it will be available in the US.

I would like a nice Windows tablet… if they start coming out at under $500, less than 1.5lbs and with a battery life that lasts around 8 or more hours.
do you even read the specs, that will most likely be at least $800 or higher
I’m sure it will cost more than that. That was the point. These types of tablets might appeal to some people, but can’t compete with iPads or Android tablets. Perhaps they aren’t meant to, but Microsoft has been making tablets like this since early 2000 and has not done very well.
Ok, you are on my side of this then
I too know how badly windows tablets have failed and windows 8 tablets will be no different
Any window 8 tablet that is around the price of an iPad will be mostly just metro UI only to really try to make use of its html5 abilities just like iPads
And then windows 8 tablets that are more powerful, enough to really do the same tasks of a laptop or desktop will just cost way too much for the average customer
So I given windows 8 tablets maybe 6 to 8 months before Microsoft pulls the plug on them, and that’s mostly due to their stubborness to admit defeat
Since Adobe is abandoning flash for mobile, html5 is the only way to go isn’t it ?
