Today in Japan, Toshiba announced their highly-anticipated dynaPad, a unique Windows 10 tablet that reinvents pen and paper. Terry Myerson joined Toshiba at their event, you can read more from him here.
Microsoft and Toshiba have a strong history of partnership, dating back to the first Toshiba PC 30 years ago. This ongoing engineering partnership and collaboration has resulted in unique and first-to-market innovations, compelling new form factors and competitive devices across the globe.
Windows 10 is our best Windows ever, and we’ve worked with Toshiba in a number of ways to truly differentiate the Toshiba and Windows 10 experience and light up key Windows 10 features in Toshiba’s line of PCs. Toshiba was one of the first PC manufacturers to have Windows Hello face recognition on a consumer PC with the introduction of the Satellite Radius 12, and the dual array mics in many of Toshiba’s devices make for superior Cortana voice performance.
Toshiba is hosting an exciting special offer where you can get $100 off all Toshiba 4k laptops beginning now until 11:59 PST on October 17, 2015. This offer is valid for the US market only.
The dynaPad is a great digital notebook, specially designed to encourage your creativity, and also enhance productivity. To that end, the dynaPad features an ultra-thin keyboard dock and a high-precision pen. It’s designed to replicate the natural feeling of writing with a pen on paper – even mirroring a common-size notebook, for a very natural and fluid handwriting experience. The dynaPad employs metal mesh sensor technology, combined with a high-performance, high-precision Wacom Active Electrostatics (ES) TruPen with 2,048 levels of pressure. In other words: It makes for superior accuracy, allowing you to maintain your natural writing style as you take notes or draw doodles. It’s the perfect companion for taking notes or using our WebNote technology in Edge.
The dynaPad also includes updated versions of Toshiba’s exclusive suite of original business applications that enable users to easily collect, organize and share notes, images and files, including TruNote, TruCapture and TruRecorder, plus new TruNote Clip and TruNote Share apps for capturing screen clips and sharing handwriting in real time. The suite integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office for convenient editing and collaboration. Oh, and dynaPad is perfectly suited for both right- and left-handed users – apps like TruNote can adapt to either, allowing you to maintain a normal writing style no matter which hand you prefer.
And of course, it all looks beautiful as well. The dynaPad features a sharp, 12-inch diagonal WUXGA+ (1920×1280) IPS display, with wide viewing angles for maximum comfort. The display also packs in a dual-layer anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint coating, which helps to maintain the screen’s sensitivity in bright environments (and lets you clean those fingerprints off quickly and easily!).
The dynaPad is an incredible achievement in 2-in-1s. With its support for Continuum, ultra-thin and lightweight design, and advanced note-taking technology, it is an impressive mobile device. Toshiba’s dynaPad will be available in the U.S. and Europe in the first quarter of 2016 and is available for pre-order starting today in Japan. If you’re looking for a slim, convenient, good-looking tablet, this is it.
