IFA: Toshiba launch Satellite U920t, aka ‘the slide-top’

By Geoff Bowen,

Judging by the product announcements so far at IFA, it seems to be the year of the laptop-cum-tablet. We’ve got the XPS Duo 12 with a swivelling screen, the XPS 10 and HP ENVY x2 with detachable screens and now the Toshiba Satellite U920t with a slide ‘n fold screen.

The U920t comes with a 12.5” TruBrite IPS HD display with 5-finger support, up to 256GB SSD hard disk and up to 8GB DDR RAM. In terms of connectivity you’re looking at HDMI, SD slot, 2 x USB 3.0 ports as well as Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) capability. The device measures 326.5mm x 213mm by 19.9mm thick and weight starts from 1.45kg.

The Satellite U920T also features two integrated cameras: a 1MP front-facing camera with an Ambient Light Sensor, and a 3MP rear-facing camera with Auto Focus. In addition to the scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass, the U920t also includes Intel Sensor Solution, allowing users to take advantage of games and applications by making use of a 3D acceleration sensor, magnetometer, gyroscope and ambient light sensor.

The Satellite U920T will be available in Q4 2012.
