The 8-inch Encore is perfect if you're looking for a versatile tablet for home, work, and play. Its multitouch display has wide viewing angles so it's great for entertainment, and with the new scaling capabilities of Windows 8.1, it has plenty of room for full-screen web browsing and an unencumbered Start screen view in both portrait and landscape orientations.
The Encore is run by a power-efficient Intel Atom processor, which delivers great performance, fast start-up and page loads, and long-lasting battery life. It also comes with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 (a $139 value) to make it easy for you to get things done according to your schedule.
Preloaded Microsoft Office Home & Student keeps you productive wherever you are. Whether using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote, Office Web Apps will ensure your documents are always synced and ready to view or edit.
The Encore's thin, lightweight, and ergonomic design is optimized for use in portrait mode, making it easy to read an e-book or watch a movie on the go.
The Encore's speakers, microphones, and cameras are placed outside the area where you'd commonly grip the tablet, so you can comfortably tap the screen, listen to music, take photos, or Skype without affecting performance.
Have crystal-clear, high-quality chats and calls with friends and family around the world with the Encore's dual microphones and 2-megapixel front camera.
The Encore has 32GB of storage, perfect for storing thousands of digital files, and includes a Micro USB 2.0 port, Micro HDMI port, and a Micro SD card slot.
