Toshiba launches new B2B range with enhanced productivity features

18 July 2012

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 18 July 2012. Speed, performance and smart technology are key features of the latest line-up of B2B notebooks and tablets unveiled today by Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited.

“Toshiba’s new B2B range is our most powerful yet. With even faster BIOS boot speeds business users will benefit from increased productivity, while continuing to enjoy the same high quality design and reliability they’ve come to expect from Toshiba,” said Justin White, Product Marketing Manager, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited.

Heading up the range is Toshiba’s WT200 Tablet with a Digitizer pen, a Windows 7® compatible Tablet that lets you carry the office in your hand. This super sleek 10.1” business Tablet is packed with all the features you’d expect from a business notebook, but with the added bonus of Digitizer – a clever piece of technology that allows users to write freehand using the Digitizer pen.

“Digitizer is truly smart technology that completely transforms the WT200. If you prefer to write notes freehand in a meeting you can simply scribble these down on your Tablet, then convert them to text in a Word document or email that can be easily shared with your team,” Mr White continued.

“It can also be used for drawings and graphs, which is ideal for a range of business users including designers, engineers or anyone who needs to quickly and easily capture data in a visual way.”

“The Tablet also learns to recognise your handwriting as you go, so even for those of us with the most illegible scrawl, it’s easy to convert notes to legible text. As well giving you greater flexibility, this also increases productivity, helping you to work more effectively with your team.”

Also unveiled in the new line-up is Toshiba’s dedicated Ultrabook™ for business – the Portégé Z930. The world’s lightest* 13.3” notebook for executives on the fly, it weighs in at just 1.12 kilograms. Featuring the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Windows® 7 Professional, this lightweight, stylish business notebook is perfect for users who want to be productive on the go.

Other stand-out products such as Toshiba’s Tecra R940 and Tecra R950 combine the latest 3rd Generation Intel® Core i7 Dual Core processors, powerful Solid State Drives and a range of ports for improved mobility and performance.
