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.

  1. Excellent, it has a mouse pointer although I’d prefer a nub. What’s the dimensions? I’d like to compare it with the Asus T90.

  2. I like the Chi 90 better for it’s design, but it sadly lacks the full USB and the HDMI. Now this one looks promising but the CPU is slower, the screen resolution is a bit too much for it (if you plan to use desktop apps) and looks to be bigger. Still waiting for the “perfect one”.

    1. My thoughts exactly. This is closer to what I need, in terms of concept, but a step away in terms of specs. Here is my criteria:

      – 8 to 8.9in screen
      – CPU at least Z3770 or faster
      – 4gb would be nice
      – 64-bit UEFI support (or legacy boot, as long as I’m dreaming)
      – Full-size USB, and SD slot

      And it doesnt need to be a 2-in-1. Infact I would prefer it as a standard clamshell laptop. I don’t like how heavy the screens are in 2-in-1s. They are really awkward to hold while standing.

    2. I’m waiting for the “perfect” one too but I doubt I’ll ever find the perfect UMPC. I was also one of the people who always complained about the UMPCs that came out some years ago yet I still bought the “best” possible one in my eyes.

      I’ll probably do the same now and buy some sort of UMPC in the next few months so I can use them while I’m at the airport/airpline during my upcoming frequent business travels.

      1. Yeah, right now I’m trying really hard to justify replacing my (perfectly fine) DV8P with a Surface 3 🙂

  3. i’d like that full size sd-slot other than that it’s still the same device like my years-old T100TA

    single (usable) usb port, horrible 2GB RAM (hey, it’s 2015!), far too less storage (128GB anyone?) and equally huge bezel (this doesn’t get better by building it with smaller display)

    yeah, ok… it’s a bit lighter and smaller and has some more battery. But even if those are really important things, those are exactly the parts t100 did right and where i’d say i don’t need improvement that bad.

    i.e. for battery: there are some stages of usability where i’d say it becomes more usable:
    – more than 30min (so i can use it as USV or to carry the device without need for standby)
    – more than 3h (enough for most meetings or watching a movie)
    – 8-12h (should be enough for a whole productive day, i can recharge at night)
    – more than a week (never seen that before)
    – a year

    of course you can build devices that last for 5h or 2 days, but imho that doesn’t make it that much better because it won’t enable me to use it in a new way.

  4. What makes it better than Acer Aspire Switch 10? Other than battery thats built into keyboard…
