Toshiba Introduces Next Generation Tablet PC

The Computer Systems Division of Toshiba
today introduced its next
generation Tablet PC, offering an impressive list of new features, enhanced productivity tools and a new, uniquely designed docking station. The Portégé M200 is built on the success of Toshiba’s award winning Portégé 3500 Tablet PC, offering advanced wireless connectivity (integrated Wireless LAN 802.11b and Bluetooth technology), Intel Centrino mobile processing power and a dual axis accelerometer. With its innovative design and enhanced system performance, the Portégé M200 offers users a more intuitive interface and a natural, practical way of working with their computer.

Appealing to several customer segments including consumer, corporate,
small-medium sized business, entrepreneurs and mobile professionals, the Portégé M200 offers exciting new options for users who want the maximum convenience and flexibility. From large sales force automation roll-outs to converting text to digital ink, the Portégé M200 is attractive to a broad range of customers looking to maximize productivity. Like its predecessor, the Portégé M200 works as an everyday notebook computer, but includes an innovative display that rotates and folds back for optimal information viewing and sharing. It optimally transitions into a Tablet PC, via a rotational hinge mechanism. The Portégé M200 also offers a choice of data input methods, such as typing, writing or speech insertion.

“Over the past year, Toshiba’s Tablet PC has gained acceptance because of its portability, versatility and ability to function beyond the traditional range of PC applications. Customers of all sizes across vast industries including insurance, pharmaceuticals and medical are using Toshiba’s award winning platform and are finding new ways to increase productivity during their entire business day,” said Oscar Koenders, general manager of Toshiba’s EMEA Computer Systems Marketing Division. “The Portégé M200 offers exciting new options including the Tablet Multi Dock - docking station and the reserve pen that provide new usage scenarios and increased application use, for everyday mobile computing needs.”
