At IFA 2012, just in the time of Android-devices unveiling, Toshiba just broke the chain down and unveiled Windows 8-powered new Satellite U925t hybrid laptop/Ultrabook. Being sleek and slim, as we could expect, the new Toshiba Windows 8 Tablet can sure be quickly transformed it into a makeshift Ultrabook, thanks to its slide out QWERTY keyboard.
Appeared at FCC earlier this week, the new Toshiba Satellite U925t Windows 8 Tablet brings a range of pretty nice features and specs. Head down for more.

Here the Satellite U925t adopts a clever slider design rather than a swivel-based screen like the one on the Lenovo’ IdeaPad Yoga.
When it’s folded up it looks like a thick tablet with a 12.5-inch display, but then again to slide the screen up there’s a full-size keyboard with a touch pad.
The new tablet has a media card reader, and assortment of sensors (ambient light, 3D acceleration, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer).
On the software front, this tablet-Ultrabook combo will feature several Toshiba Windows 8 apps, including Toshiba Desktop Assist (which feels a bit like a Start menu), Toshiba Central (great for support) and Book Place and News Place.
No words on pricing yet, but we suspect this to be appearing for just a bit more than $1000 USD. It is expected to launch on October 26, just in the time of Windows 8 unveiling. Stay tuned for additional details.
