JAPANESE INDUSTRIAL GIANT Toshiba has announced its first hybrid ultrabook laptop to feature a detachable display so that it can also be used as a tablet device.

The Portégé Z10T is aimed at business users looking for the convenience and portability of an all in one device, featuring an 11.6in HD touch-enabled display and preloaded with Windows 8 Professional.

"Ideally suited to business professionals requiring a powerful but portable device that easily adapts to different usage situations, the Portégé Z10T quickly transforms from an intuitive touchscreen Windows 8 Pro tablet into a traditional full performance laptop in just one click," Toshiba said.

On the inside of the Z10T there's an Intel CPU and an SSD drive, though Toshiba hasn't yet announced the performance or capacity of these.

"Additionally, when in tablet mode, the Portégé Z10T can be used as a digital notepad, making it a convenient tool for meetings or seminars," Toshiba said. "Using an optional Digitiserpen, the Portégé Z10T's handwriting recognition feature converts written on-screen notes into editable digital documents."

Users can also draw sketches on the tablet screen, accurately tap on a specific area to place the cursor or navigate more precisely through menus.

In terms of connectivity, there's standard 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and optional Intel Wireless Display (WiDi). 3G is also an option for those willing to pay extra for it.

There are also advanced security and data management features pre-installed on the Z10T, including Anti-Theft software to reduce the risk of unauthorised access, and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which safeguards locally stored critical data.

Intel Vpro technology is also integrated into the processor to increase security levels, including the ability to disable the device remotely, and allows IT departments to monitor, maintain, repair and upgrade the Portégé Z10t from a central administrative site.

Available in grey metallic colour and measuring 19.9mm at its thickest point, the Portégé Z10t will be available in the UK from "the second quarter 2013", so should be released within the next month or so. µ
