Toshiba Encore Mini officially announced at an affordable price with Windows 8.1

Toshiba Encore Mini

The Toshiba Encore Mini was officially announced today as the cheapest tablet to date to run Windows 8.1. The slate was developed following a "close" collaboration with Microsoft, and it’s obviously the Redmond giant’s attempt to compete with the army of ultra-affordable Android tablets available all around the world.

The tablet has been priced at just $199, and can be purchased through Toshiba's online store and through major retailers. This price is possible as the tablet runs a special version of Windows called, "Windows 8.1 with Bing" which is given to OEMs at an affordable cost. For the end user, you still get a full Windows experience which includes a 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal and 1 TB (one terabyte) of OneDrive storage space

The Encore Mini features a 7 inch display with a 1024 by 600 pixel resolution, 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a 2 MP rear camera, a VGA front-facing camera “with microphone” and a 1.83 GHz Intel Atom Z3735G processor with 1GB of RAM. Currently only the white version of the tablet is available, with no word on other color availability.

Would you consider purchasing a Windows tablet for $119 or would you rather purchase an Android tablet instead. Remember that since this runs Windows 8.1, you can run any Windows desktop or Modern app.
