Toshiba W30t 13.3″ Laptop and Tablet Hybrid with Detachable Screen

Posted by – September 6, 2013

The first product shown was a Toshiba W30t which is a hybrid laptop and tablet with a detachable screen. The W30t runs on the Windows 8 platform. Similar to other laptop hybrids the W30t keyboard docks includes an additional battery and can achieve up to 10 hours of battery life with the dock plugged in and 5 hours with it removed. The W30t has a 13.3" touchscreen with an unspecified "HD" (probably 1366x768) resolution. Unlike other tablets and ultrabooks the W30t doesn't have a ssd and instead has a conventional hard drive. The product comes with either Intel Core processors or AMD APU's. The price should be 750 USD starting price for the Toshiba and even less with an AMD processor. Expect a Q4 2013 release.

Asus Transformer Book Trio, super expensive dual-x86 machine

Posted by – June 3, 2013

Here's Asus's latest extremely overpriced quite useless use of Android on top of a Wintel machine, using the latest most expensive Intel processor, and instead of using ARM on the Android mode, for no good reason, Asus makes yet another Intel x86 mistake, there's yet another Intel Atom for Android mode. This over-expensive Intel Asus machine is probably going to cost $1500 and nobody is going to buy it. But here again, Johnny Shy likes to use the time of world media to show off yet another concept that is not going to interest nearly anyone. Good thing the Intel CEO has just been replaced, what the purpose is for this type of product is quite remote. Is Asus going to sell more than a few thousand of these overpriced quickly outdated devices worldwide?

Microsoft Windows 8 RT at Next Berlin

Posted by – May 9, 2013

I'm asking Microsoft Germany's Windows Product Marketing Manager Boris Schneider-Johne some questions about the status of Windows RT, I also ask about the Android competition, RT vs Pro market share, everything on Windows RT is encrypted, Surface RT is his secondary computer (Photoshop/Ligthroom doesn't run on RT), how often does RT crash? Connected Standby (gets latest info all the time through Connected Standby API), and I even ask questions which he obviously can't answer, about Microsoft claiming ownership over Android (announcing certain Microsoft Partner Android companies paying Microsoft a licence for Android) Cheaper Windows RT? $299 instead of $599? 13.3" RT? 7" RT? 8" RT? and the idea of making a Metro UI for Android (he says it can't work).
