Toshiba launches its attractive WT-8 Windows 8.1 tablet in India for Rs 15490

Toshiba is joining the Windows 8.1 race in India with its WT-8 tablet that’s aggressively priced and offers a good deal of features. The slate is tagged at Rs 15490, which is cheaper compared to most other Microsoft-powered releases in the country and it’s already available for purchase.

The Toshiba WT-8 is basically part of the company’s Encore 2 series. The tablet falls in the 8-inch category and is powered by an Intel processor. The chip used here is the Atom Z3735G clocked at 1.83GHz and the display is a WXGA LED-backlit panel with 16:10 aspect ratio. The exteriors also have a 1.2MP fixed-focus camera on the front and a 5MP snapper on the rear.
