When it was originally teased at the IFA technology trade show in Berlin in late 2015, Toshiba's latest idea for a Windows-based tablet was joining a crowded field including slates from Microsoft, Lenovo and others. But, the slim 12-inch device, which promised a pen-on-paper-like experience from its TruPen stylus, had no release date or price attached to it, leaving it in limbo throughout the holiday season.
At CES 2016, Toshiba has announced that the dynaPad will go on sale in the US within a few weeks, for a reasonable $569. UK and Australian details have yet to be announced, but that converts to around £390 or AU$810. A keyboard dock will be extra.
At 6.9mm thick and just 1.28 pounds (580 grams), it's among the most travel-friendly of Windows tablets, but you shouldn't expect performance on par with something like the Surface Pro series. Inside is an Intel Atom CPU, along with up to 4GB of RAM. But for drawing and sketching, you may not need much more, especially as the active pen promises Wacom support and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The Toshiba dynaPad will be sold through the Microsoft Store starting later in January.
