IFA Berlin is in full swing and we're starting to see a number of Windows 8 product announcements emerge. One of them is Toshiba's Satellite U925t convertible tablet, or "tablet meets Ultrabook," as the company describes it. Sleek and slim, the Satellite U925t looks every bit a tablet, but a slide out QWERTY keyboard quickly transforms it into a makeshift Ultrabook with some pretty impressive hardware inside.
For starters, the U925t is rocking a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor (Ivy Bridge) with Intel HD 4000 graphics. The CPU is flanked by a 128GB solid state drive and an unspecified amount of DDR3-1600 memory, providing a solid foundation for the 12.5-inch display to work with. Speaking of the capacitive touchscreen display, it's of the IPS variety and is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass.
Complimentary features include 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports (one with Sleep & Charge), front-facing HD webcam, 3MP rear-facing camera with auto-focus, media card reader, and assortment of sensors (ambient light, 3D acceleration, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer).
The slide-out keyboard sports an LED backlight and ClickPad with Windows 8 gesture support. There's no numpad, but there are arrow keys and, from what we can tell, media keys.
Toshiba isn't ready to reveal pricing info just yet, but as you might have guessed, the U925t will go on sale October 26, the same day Windows 8 hits the streets.
