Microsoft may not have gone through with its Surface Mini, but that's not stopping others from putting full Windows 8.1 on tiny tablets.

Toshiba's Encore Mini, for example, is a 7-inch version of its 10- and 8-inch Encore 2 tablets. The Mini first appeared at Computex in June, but is now getting an official announcement at IFA 2014.

At $120 (£99 in the UK) this is pretty much a no-frills tablet featuring a 1,024x600-pixel-resolution multitouch display, a quad-core 1.83GHz Intel Atom processor, integrated graphics, and 16GB of internal storage.

There's a microSD card slot supporting cards up to 128GB, though and you get a terabyte of OneDrive storage as well as a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal. (Pricing and availability for Australia wasn't announced, but the converted price is about AU$129.)

Other features include a Micro-USB port (USB 2.0); 0.3-megapixel front and 2-megapixel rear cameras; 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0; and a battery life of up to 7.3 hours.

So, if you're interested in running full Windows 8.1 on a tiny tablet for cheap, the Encore Mini is available now. We'd wait till holiday shopping season kicks in, though, as its price will likely be closer to $100.
