Toshiba launched a Windows 8-based hybrid product, the Satellite U925, as part of the Windows 8 launch. That product had a keyboard that slid out of the touchscreen and then could be tucked back in to make it into a tablet. This week, Toshiba revealed plan to launch a second Windows 8 notebook-tablet hybrid, but with a different design.
Engadget reports that Toshiba showed off the device at the Intel Developer Forum this week. While the company didn't give a name for the product, the article says it is similar to a device called the Portege Z10 that recently passed FCC inspection. This notebook has a keyboard that detaches from the main device, but it has a rather large hinge that keeps the screen in place when used as a notebook.
The screen itself is 10 inches, and the main device has a USB 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI socket and a full-size SD card slot, along with a version of Intel's Ivy Bridge processor. The keyboard is backlit and contains a trackpad and a pointing stick. Other than that there's no other information about the hardware specifications on this upcoming Windows 8 hybrid, but we should know more when it is launched later this quarter.
