Toshiba is no stranger to Windows tablets, but what we’ve seen to date has typically been targeted at businesses or has otherwise been… limited. In that sense, the Encore is something special. It’s not just the company’s first 8-inch Windows tablet — it’s the first aimed at a truly broad audience. That said, it faces stiff odds. Acer, Dell, Lenovo and others have comparable slates on the market, in many cases with similar features. Toshiba would have to do something truly out of the ordinary to stand out. And frankly, it doesn’t. While the Encore is a worthy device, you’ll have to be particularly enamored with its design to ignore its rivals. Read on to see what we mean. %Gallery-slideshow186055% Filed under: Tablets, Intel

If you’ve ever argued that your new smartphone is more reliable than what you’re replacing, you now have some evidence to back up your claims. Crittercism has posted a study showing that apps running in newer versions of Android and iOS (such as KitKat and iOS 7.1) are considerably less likely to crash; you’re practically inviting headaches if you stick with a phone running Gingerbread or iOS 6. The research also suggests that the Galaxy S 4 and iPhone 5 are the most trustworthy devices, while tablets of all kinds are relatively crash-happy. The findings aren’t shocking when both Apple and Google have both spent years fixing bugs, and it’s notable that the study only covers crashes with third-party apps — they don’t address first-party software glitches. Still, this data is as good an excuse as any to upgrade an aging handset stuck on an old platform.

Although the Office for iPad suite is relatively full-featured, it won’t print hard copies. That’s a glaring omission even in this increasingly paperless era, we’d say. Not to worry, though: Microsoft tells PCWorld that printing support is coming as part of future app updates. The company hasn’t said just when those upgrades are due, but Office general manager Julia White promises to “iterate very fast” on the fledgling productivity software. In the meantime, don’t toss out your conventional PC — you may need it to print out that next contract or term paper. Filed under: Tablets, Software, Microsoft Source: PCWorld
