Toshiba has introduced not only a 2-in-1 Windows PC, a 12.5 inch convertible Satellite Radius 12, but also a new dynaPad tablet available in Japan.
The Toshiba dynaPad has a 12-inch display and detachable keyboard dock. This tablet also supports pen input and comes with a Wacom Active Electrostatics TruePen with support for 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity! In comparison to the new Microsoft Surface Pro tablet, its pressure sensitivity only supports 1,024 levels. With any casual tablet user, you probably won’t notice much of a difference. If you are an artist, however, the Toshiba dynaPad could be a better fit for you.
The tablet has a 1920 x 1280 pixel IPS display with a dual-layer coat of anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint material. The dynaPad weighs about 1.25 pounds, while the tablet and keyboard combined, weigh about 2.2 pounds. It will also have 4GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro HDMI port, a microSD card slot, an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor, 802.11ac WiFi, two micro USB ports, and 64GB of storage.
Microsoft has announced pre-order for the tablet in Japan already. This tablet should be introduced to the US and Europe at the beginning of 2016, however the company tends to use the name “dyna” in Japan, so it will probably have a different name such as “Satellite” (which is what they use for international products).
Hopefully Toshiba updates the spec sheet, because as of now, it’s claiming the tablet has an Atom x5-Z8300 processor, which means it only supports up to 2GB of RAM. Let’s just hope this isn’t the case and by the time it is available to us, they will have made a more powerful processor for the expected GB of RAM.
