Toshiba Encore Windows tablet tips up in Europe

Written by Nermin Hajdarbegovic

The first Bay Trail tablets are finally trickling down the channel. First it was Acer’s W3, then Asus showed offer the TF100 at IDF 2014, and now it’s Toshiba’s turn.

Toshiba showcased the Encore 8-inch Windows tablet earlier this month and it promised that its new toy will cost less than Acer’s W3. That was supposed to be $330 in the US, but luckily it’s not €330 in Europe, it’s €299, which still makes it a bit pricier than the W3.

However, the Acer W3 rocks a Z2760 dual-core, while Tosh went for a quad-core Bay Trail Z3740 clocked at 1.33GHz. This makes it hands down the cheapest Bay Trail tablet to show up so far.

Other specs include 2GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD, Micro HDMI, 8-inch 1280x800 screen, b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 and a microSDHC reader. There’s also a 64GB version for €349. At 480g it weighs a tad more than your average Android 8-incher, but it’s not too bulky – it measures 213x136x10.68mm.
