Ever since the introduction of touch screen smartphones, companies are striving to deliver as thin device, as possible. And now, Toshiba claims that it just produced World’s thinnest Windows 10 tablet. This 12-inch tablet is called Toshiba dynaPad, and it’s Toshiba’s competitor of Surface Pro 4.
Dimensions of this tablet are very slim. And indeed, at 0.27 inches thin and 1.28 pounds, Toshiba dynaPad is the thinnest and lightest 12-inch tablet ever. Toshiba dynaPad surely beats Surface Pro 4 when it comes to thinness, but when it comes to performance and hardware compatibility, it falls behind Microsoft’s latest Surface Pro device.
Toshiba dynaPad Features and Price
First noticeable difference is the processor. While Surface Pro 4 ships with Intel’s Skylake Core processors, Toshiba dynaPad comes with a humbler Cherry Trail Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor with integrated Intel HD Graphics. With this in mind, we could say that dynaPad is more Surface Pro 3’s competitor, than Surface Pro 4’s. With this processor, Toshiba dynaPad can’t really be a PC replacement, but it could be a very quality companion device.
Other features of this tablet are 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM Memory, 64GB of internal storage, a 2-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus. It features a 12-inch Full HD+ screen running at the resolution of 1920×1280. DynaPad also includes two Micro USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB of external memory, and a Micro HDMI port.
The device comes pre-loaded with a bunch of Toshiba productivity apps, leverage the stylus, headphones, and microphone. The keyboard is also included in the package, and the tablet with the keyboard attached weighs for 2.2 pounds (different than original 1.28).
Toshiba dynaPad will be available for the price starting at $570. This is a base model price, we expect more pricing details when tablet goes on sale, later this month.
