The rumors of Toshiba’s plan of dropping windows tablet development totally have not even died down properly, and the company proved those speculations wrong by launching a Windows 7 tablet based on Intel’s Oak-trail platform.

The tablet, called Toshiba WT310/C, sports a formidable 11.6” display panel with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The screen supports multitouch and adjusts brightness automatically. The processor in question is a single core Atom Z670 chip clocking at 1.5GHz. Apart from that you get 2GB of RAM, 64GB SSD, 2MP front / 3MP rear cameras and Windows 7 Professional.

I/O ports include USB 2.0, HDMI and a SDXC card slot. Wireless connectivity is taken care of by the 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Netbooknews mentions a few interesting features on this tablet like “Audio Enhancer” for better sound quality, BIOS / SSD login security and power saving “Eco Utilities”. The 15.6mm thick tablet weighs little less than a kilo, which is quite bulky for a handheld device. Toshiba will sell optional dock separately.

No words right now about the availability or pricing, but mid-June sounds like the right time.
