Toshiba logoThis past week, we brought you Microsofts official announcement of Windows 8.1 with Bing. The operating system, which requires Bing to be the default search engine within Internet Explorer, is aimed at manufacturers looking to market low-cost computers to customers.

The Encore 2 tablets will be available in both 8-inch and 10-inch versions, and will share all other performance and hardware specifications (with the exception of a micro HDMI port on the 10-inch model).
