The thin and light Toshiba dynaPad tablet is available for pre-order at $570

Toshiba is still selling PC devices, despite its recent financial troubles. Today it announced its previously revealed 12-inch Windows 10 tablet, the Toshiba dynaPad, is now available for pre-order direct from the company for $569.99.

Toshiba says the dynaPad is the world's thinnest and lightest 12-inch Windows tablet at 6.9mm thin and 1.28 pounds. It comes with a digitizer pen with Wacom support and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity. There's also an optional hardware keyboard for the dynaPad. Toshiba says:

The tablet features the Intel Atom x5 Z8300 processor5 with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of flash storage delivering snappy performance for navigating Windows 10, using apps and getting work done. Offering a range of connectivity options, dynaPad includes two Micro USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB cards and a Micro HDMI port for connecting to external devices. In addition, the device includes ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as a 2MP front-facing camera and dual-array TruTalk mics for video chatting and an 8MP rear camera with auto-focus.

The Toshiba dynaPad will be sold at Microsoft's retail stores later in January.

  • Too expensive now the S3 has been reduced by $100 and the SP3 i3 can be had for just $31 more, not sure the larger screen, coupled with a lower specced processor and smaller max storage warrants the price vs the S3.
  • That was a temporary price reduction on the S3. The price listed on the Microsoft Store site is back up to $500/$600.
  • Needs more bezels.
  • :P
  • I'm fairness, IIRC: Doesn't Wacom technology require large bezels to avoid the pen becoming horribly inaccurate near the edges or something like that? I remember the SP1 & SP2 having that issue.
  • Windows tablet gestures also work better with bezels. If there were any nowadays.
  • swipe from right is action center, from left is task menu, from top is additional app settings (or grabs an app and you can then swipe down to end task or snap it to the right or left side if the screen). Swipe from bottom is nothing afaik in either tablet or desktop mode. I don't know what substances you're ingesting but the swipe gestures have remained...
  • Any word on resolution?
  • Full HD, 1080p
  • 64 Gbs, USB 2.0, Intel atom, surely someone at Toshiba just woke up from their 2014 hibernation. Putting all jokes aside, are they trying to fail then blame windows for it. Asus t100 came out over a year ago with better specs ( beside of screen size) and it was cheaper.
  • Now we know why they have financial troubles.
  • Good choice on the Wacom digitizer. With that being said, the design says it's time for Toshiba to exit the PC market altogether, this looks horrible.
  • Doesn't seem faster...  ;-)
  • LOL! That bezel!
  • Seems ok, looks acceptable for budget tablets.
  • Twice as much as it should be with an Atom. $399 would make more sense. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Costlier than the Surface 3. The specs and looks make it not more than a $400 device.
  • A 12-inch Windows tablet weighed at less than 600 g is significant imo. Please appreciate.
  • Why do you guys complain about the bezel ? It`s just fine to hold the damn thing without touching on the screen... 
  • Much too expensive for an Atom based tablet. I can't see anyone buying this crap. But Toshiba seems confident...
