Although a few have been noticed, Toshiba Portégé WT20 was announced at CES 2015 in Las Vegas and is a variation of less equipped Portege Z20t without keyboard dock and Wacom pen. In practice, Portégé WT20 is a tablet stand alone, but it will be compatible with accessories Portege Z20t. After six months, the Toshiba launches in the US market at the starting price of $ 899 (model WT20-B2100) obviously addressing professional users, as demonstrated by some of its functionality and features.
E ‘equipped with a display of 12.5 inch IPS Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) to 10 points of contact, Intel Core M-5Y10c (Broadwell), supported by 4GB of memory to 1600 MHz DDR3L and 128GB of internal memory drive mSATA SSD. On board it will be pre-installed Windows 8.1 Professional, but as of July 29 will be possible to make the free upgrade to Windows 10.
Do not miss the usual sensors (ambient light, gyroscope and compass) and common solutions for connectivity, including a module 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro USB for power, a micro HDMI and a micro SD card reader to expand storage. The 3-cell battery (36 Wh) should provide a range of 9.1 hours.
The chassis of the Toshiba Portégé WT20 is constructed entirely of magnesium alloy, which ensures resistance to impact and scratches, but also light weight (not surprisingly, the tablet weighs just 725 grams, almost a record for his size). It integrates a fingerprint reader and a matte screen, rather rare in tablet.
Obviously the new Toshiba tablet has a “special attention” to the safety of the Toshiba EasyGuard suite and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) protects data stored locally. Portégé WT20 is also easy to use in enterprise environments with advanced manageability options, including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Toshiba Cloud Client Manager (TCCM) and Toshiba Smart Client Manager 2.0 (TSCM)
