Earliest back-to-school promo ever: Toshiba unveils flurry of tablets and laptops | Digg Technology.
Toshiba has a bevy of tablets and laptops ready to launch for the back-to-school season. It’s early to the game, for sure, as school isn’t even out of session yet for this year. But most of the products won’t ship until June, after school lets out. That gives you a lot of time to plan your back-to-school purchases.
The new laptops and tablets reflect Toshiba’s strategy of offering next-generation features that compete head-to-head with Apple devices but are more affordable. The tablets run Android, while the laptops run Windows 7.
“We are cascading premium features down to our low-end models,” Toshiba senior product manager Duc Dang told VentureBeat. “The laptop market has matured and isn’t growing like it once did. So we are adding more value across the different price categories.”
