Windows 8.1 is just around the corner, and Microsoft hopes that the new OS update will be enough to win more users over to their mobile platform. With that in mind, Toshiba is taking the opportunity show off two next-gen Windows tablets at IFA 2013 in Berlin.

The two devices couldn’t be more opposite of each other when it comes to size. The Encore features a modestly sized 8-inch display. In contrast, the Satellite Click is a hybrid tablet/notebook device with a 13-inch screen.

The Encore

Back to the Encore, this 8-inch full Windows 8 machine is powered by an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, the new 8-incher is designed for portability, but with beefed up enough hardware to work as a serious computing platform.

Beyond the Atom processor, the Encore also has 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a microUSB 2.0 port, microHDMI, microSD, Wi-Fi GPS, an 8MP rear cam, 2MP front came and dual microphones for programs like Skype.

Size wise, the tablet is about .42-inches think and comes in a just a tad over a pound (17 ounces). Apparently the tablet will retail for around $330, starting in November.

The Satellite Click

Looking for a new tablet? Also aiming to replace an aging laptop? The Click could kill two birds with one stone. The Click is a gorgeous 13-inch laptop when it needs to be, or a portable (though a bit big..) 13-inch tablet as well – thanks to its easily detachable design.

The device favors an AMD processor over Intel, specifically a dual-core AMD A4. It also has a resolution of 1366 x 768, 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive, microHDMI and microUSB. The keyboard dock also has its own battery and full-size USB 3.0 port.

Like the Encore, the Click is priced with budget conscientious buyers in mind at a reasonably affordable price of just $599.

So what do you think of Toshiba’s new Windows-powered tablets, enough to make you strongly consider Windows 8.1 or not?
