TAIPEI, Taiwan -- As part of its keynote presentation on day two of Computex, Microsoft's VP of OEM partners Nick Parker showed off two previously unseen Windows devices.
The HP Pro X2 612 was the first reveal -- a 2-in-1 "designed from the ground up for business". It comes with a stylus using the Wacom digitiser, full HD cameras front and back and enterprise security built in. Parker said that the combined battery life would run to 14 hours, thanks to the second battery in the detachable keyboard. A 4G version was also said to be available.
The new X2 is a 12.5-inch screen sames as the Surface 3. It has full HD resolution and will come in Intel Core i3 and Core i5 variants.
The second was a 7-inch tablet from Toshiba. Parker hyped up the design, including the "champagne gold" finish but also claimed that price would be competitive with other 7-inch devices on the market -- he went as far as to describe the pricing as "aggressive", without going into specifics.
It later transpired that the device was the Toshiba Encore, a Windows version of the Android Excite Go. You can read a.
