Toshiba announced today new products with Windows on board, tablets in the Dynabook Tab S50 series, that sport 10.1 inch screen sand S38 models, too. All of them rely on Windows 8.1 with Bing edition.
The appeal of Windows 8.1 with Bing is that it’s offered for free or for a very low price to device manufacturers. The difference here is that IE has Bing as the default search engine and manufacturers can’t change the settings. Windows 8.1 with Bing won’t be commercially available and it’s only offered to device makers. The Dynabook Tab models come with 4 core Intel Atom Z3735F processors, clocked at up to 1.83 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of storage and WiFi.
They have 1.2 MP webcams, 5 MP back shooters, microSD card slots, audio hacks and micro HDMI ports, as well as GPS and stereo speakers. The screen on the S50 series is a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 unit, with wide view angles, while the S38 is an 8 incher with the same resolution. Windows 8.1 32 bit is offered here and all models come with Office Home and Business 2013. Products will hit the market in July and the battery operating time for the S50 is about 7 hours, while the S38 gets 7.5 hours.
