Toshiba Encore Is The World's First 8-Inch Tablet with Windows 8.1, Coming in November for $330 | GadgeTell. Microsoft has punted the tablet market, and now Toshiba has picked up the gauntlet. This Windows 8.1 tablet has a Micro HDMI port, front and rear facing cameras, and up to 64 gigs of storage. It sports a quad core processor, and has an 8 inch screen. The best part is that, unlike Microsoft products, is priced to sell, at $330. Since I use WordPerfect exclusively, I have longed for a usable tablet that will allow me to access all of my forms and files on the road. This may be it, although I still get better production with a full sized keyboard attached to my 3 pound ASUS computer. Somebody tell SWMBO my birthday is in November.
