Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing at Toshiba America Information Systems, has been quoted saying that “We’ve developed two amazing detachables – one that delivers solid, everyday performance at a great price and another that features a premium performance configuration that the category has been missing. Yet both give consumers the productivity benefits of a laptop and the convenience and battery life of a tablet in one device.”
