Introducing the Toshiba Satellite Click Mini 2-in-1 – the detachable that adapts with you
- A fully-functional laptop and a versatile tablet in one affordable 22.6 cm (8.9”) device
- Engaging entertainment provided by a bright high resolution display with IPS technology and stereo sound enhanced by Dolby® Digital Plus™
- Made for mobility with up to 16 hours video playback in a thin, light chassis
Dublin, Ireland, January 6th 2015 – Toshiba Europe GmbH today announces its latest detachable – the Satellite Click Mini. An affordable 22.6 cm (8.9”) device, compact in size for ultra-mobility, and able to perform dual roles – transforming from a fully functional laptop with Windows 8.1 Update to tablet at the press of a button – reducing the need to carry multiple devices. Perfect for Windows users looking to do more on the go, as an intuitive first device for children, or for students looking for the best of everything, the Satellite Click Mini adapts to suit the needs of a wide range of consumers.
Sandor van der Ham, Vice President, B2C PC, Lifestyle Products and Services Group, Toshiba Europe GmbH, says, “With the Satellite Click Mini, we are expanding our detachable family further due to growing demand as well as continuing to increase the choice of devices for consumers to reflect their diverging needs. Today, people want to be able to consume, create or share content, at will, wherever they are and having a device for every scenario isn’t practical. The Satellite Click Mini delivers the freedom to do all wherever they are.”
Small device, big entertainment
The 22.6 cm (8.9”) Satellite Click Mini weighs just 470 g and measures only 9.8 mm thin in tablet mode – or 999 g2 and 19.9 mm with the keyboard dock – this compact device is a perfectly portable companion. The beyond Full HD (1920 x 1200) display offers a 254.4 pixels-per-inch resolution, for an excellent viewing experience while watching films and viewing photos. The bright IPS display also allows for a wider viewing angle for greater flexibility or if more than one person is viewing the screen.
As well as enjoying a fully immersive viewing experience, users can also surround themselves with clearly defined sound. The Satellite Click Mini features side-firing stereo speakers for clearer audio that’s heightened by Dolby® Digital Plus™. This enhancement suite ensures every note and voice sounds just the way it’s supposed to, for premium quality audio that adds depth and power to soundtracks, music, games and videos.
Made to go further
Whether a travelling, out and about, or being used at home, the Satellite Click Mini offers everything needed for work and play throughout the day. When the keyboard is docked, users can benefit from a battery life of up to 16 hours1 video playback – enough for the standard working day and more. As a tablet, the Satellite Click Mini can also be used for video playback up to 8 hours1 on a single charge. An intelligent charging system means the tablet will always charge first and discharge after the keyboard to maximise its use when undocked.
With Windows 8.1 with Bing included, users can benefit from a one year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal enabling access to familiar applications for reading emails or creating new documents. The Microsoft Office 365 Personal subscription can also be extended to one primary PC to provide a consistent Windows experience across devices. In addition, with 1TB of OneDrive online storage ncluded, and the option of adding more, users can save as much data as they need, while 60 Skype world minutes per month are included for keeping in touch with friends and family.
Inside lies an Intel® AtomTM processor to provide all the performance and speed necessary for enjoying the latest mobile games with stunning graphics as well as a fast start up, browsing and multi-tasking.
Connectivity whenever, wherever
The Satellite Click Mini includes a range of connectivity options regardless of whether being used in tablet or laptop mode. On the tablet, a Micro-HDMI® provides the option of sharing content on a larger display, a microSD/SDHC/SDXC slot aids the sharing of content between devices while a Micro-USB 2.0 port is also featured. The keyboard provides a full-size USB 2.0 port enabling the transfer of files plus a full-size SD slot provides the option of increasing the embedded 32 GB eMMC storage. Wireless display functionality is also included to seamlessly share audio and video to other devices without the need for cables.
Capture the moment
Users won’t miss a thing with the 5 MP auto focus, rear-facing camera to take high quality pictures, and shoot 1080p (30fps) videos, on the move. With the HD front facing web camera, users can talk face-to-face with friends and colleagues. The Satellite Click Mini also features the TruCapture app so users can easily capture information on any paper document, whiteboard or projected image –simply by taking a snapshot of it – saving time for increased productivity on the go. TruCapture also improves the legibility of information by reducing reflection and correcting colours to make images and text easier to identify and read. In addition, printed words in images taken by TruCapture will be searchable and easily transferable into other applications thanks to the character recognition feature.
The Satellite Click Mini is just as stylish as it is comfortable, available in either a Satin GoldTM or Smart White Pearl. It’s also highly durable and always ready for life on the move.
The Toshiba Satellite Click Mini will be available in the UK during the first quarter of 2015 in Smart White Pearl and during the second quarter of 2015 in Satin GoldTM.

Introducing the Toshiba Encore 2 Write tablets – where pen-point accuracy meets Windows 8.1 productivity
- New 25.65 cm (10.1”) and 20.32 cm (8”) models come with TruPen for more creativity and productivity
- TruNote and TruCapture applications enable users to efficiently organise and make more of their notes and photos
- Ideal for work with advanced connectivity, dual microphones and a one year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal
Dublin, Ireland, January 6th 2015 – Toshiba Europe GmbH announces a duo of new tablets running Windows 8.1 Update with Bing – the 25.65 cm (10.1”) Encore 2 Write WT10PE-A, and the 20.32 cm (8”) Encore 2 Write WT8PE-B. Both models come with TruPen so users can bring precision and control to their work – taking notes in meetings or lectures, sketching, editing photos or simply when it’s more natural to create by hand. Encore 2 Write tablets are ideal travel companions, delivering a powerful Intel® Atom™ performance to help users get the most out of their day. Both devices include a one year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal that enables OneNote syncing in the cloud across devices, providing extensive connectivity needed to support life on the move.
With the sleek and light 25.65 cm (10.1”) Encore 2 Write, the larger screen is bright, clear and more immersive when viewing media – it’s also perfect for using the TruPen to write, draw, edit intricate details on photos or input data with pin-point accuracy. For those who demand more mobility, there’s the elegant 20.32 cm (8”) Encore 2 Write, which is optimised for one-handed use in portrait mode so easily replaces a notebook when taking minutes or writing lists for work and study.
The Encore 2 Write is designed to have the best and instinctive handwriting experience thanks to collaboration between Toshiba and Wacom. The TruPen, powered by Wacom feel IT technologies (branded feelTM), provides a smooth writing experience enabling high accuracy and friction levels close to that of writing with pen and paper regardless of speed. It is also ergonomically designed, making it comfortable to hold, even over longer periods of time and because it has a pressure-sensitive tip, users are always in complete control of every line they write or draw. Each model’s elegant design features a special slot for attaching the pen to the tablet, so it’s always to hand for jotting down ideas or developing to-do lists.
The preinstalled TruNote handwriting application, with an intuitive interface and working closely with Microsoft Office 365 Personal, enables users to organise and make the most of their content. With the Quick Note function, users can start jotting down memos even when not logged in – memos will then be automatically displayed when TruNote is launched. The search functionality allows all handwritten characters in TruNote to be found, while web searches can also be conducted using previously written text. Handwritten notes can quickly be converted for greater use in Microsoft Office, for example, in the form of new emails in Outlook or presentations in PowerPoint.
Powered with precision
Encore 2 Write tablets are powered by an Intel® AtomTM processor, to provide users with the performance and speed required to enjoy the latest applications, with stunning graphics and fast start-up. Both models also come with 2 GB of memory for improved multi-tasking and a smoother performance and with a battery life that lasts up to 8.5 hours the Encore 2 Write lasts all day on the move, without the need to recharge it.
Whenever users spot a photo opportunity, they can capture the action in high-resolution detail on the 8 MP rear camera with auto-focus. There’s also a 1.2 MP front-facing camera with built in microphone for Skype video calling. Together with TruCapture, the rear camera can also take photos of whiteboards, documents or projections for use in classes, meetings and presentations where the legibility of information is improved by intelligently cropping and correcting the colors and reducing reflection. In addition, printed words in images taken by TruCapture will be searchable and easily transferable into other applications thanks to the character recognition feature to save users from re-typing handwritten information.
Windows 8.1 with Bing
Encore 2 Write ships with Windows 8.1 Update with Bing, which includes several updated usability features. These tablets also come with a one-year subscription for Microsoft Office 365 Personal helping provide the freedom to read, edit, create and share documents or presentations on the go – using Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, Access and OneNote. Up to 1 TB of OneDrive online storage along with Skype phone minutes are available as part of the subscription, so users can store and access their documents in the cloud or keep in touch with colleagues and friends. The subscription also allows Microsoft Office 365 Personal to be installed on one other PC to add further productivity to existing devices and providing a consistent Windows experience across devices.
Connected, and ready for anything
A range of flexible connections means users can quickly transfer their videos, games and music as well as displaying content on larger screens. Both tablets feature a Micro-USB port for sharing content, and a microSD slot meaning storage can also be expanded by up to 128 GB if more space is needed for photos and documents. The Encore 2 Write WT10PE-A also has a Micro-HDMI® output for displaying media on a bigger screen or without the need for wires via wireless display support on both models. The inclusion of dual microphones with beamforming feature provides clarity to video calls by suppressing the background noise and focusing the audio on those directly near the tablet. With the performance of Dolby® Digital Plus Advanced Audio, users can immerse themselves in authentic surround sound, while any noise interference is eliminated.
Distinctively stylish, by design
With the stylish elegance of a Satin GoldTM chassis and matching slim bezel, Encore 2 Write tablets really stand out. Built with ergonomics in mind, both tablets have rounded edges for easier holding, while the speakers are positioned so the audio isn’t compromised when the device is held. Function is also a key part of the design, so all ports and buttons have been carefully positioned to make connecting to devices instinctively quick and simple.
User-friendly for increased productivity
Toshiba Display Utility is readily accessible via the desktop and enlarges elements, such as menu text and icons, to make them easier to see and use onscreen. Not only does this make life simpler rather than changing viewing settings, it offers an improved user experience for all, particularly on the smaller Encore 2 Write WT8PE-B.
The Encore 2 Write tablets will be available in Ireland during the first quarter of 2015.
