Toshiba CES 2011: Android, Chrome OS and Windows 7 Tablets

With the tablet market increasing and different manufacturers bringing us their offerings, it’s no surprise that news of tech giants Toshiba will be giving us something to look forward to in the new year. I’m talking about the introduction of three new tablets with three carriers being presented at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2011.

According to Engadget via DigiTimes, two of the three tablets will include 10.1-inch screens with the third option being a slightly bigger 11.6-inches. Decisions are yet to be made around what OS the tablets will run on? Will they opt for the benefits of Windows 7 or Google’s Chrome, or maybe Toshiba will decide to enlist Android. Judging by today’s news, if Toshiba are set to introduce their new tablets in January, then some OS decisions will have to made quite sharpish.

If we take a look at what is around on the present market in terms of PC slates and their OS, the Motorola Android prototype tablet is a pretty stiff contender. As SlashGear reported, this fantastic device has been rumored to incorporate a possible 10-inch screen, Honeycomb’s OS, along with a dual-core NVIDIA processor. Details are still a little sketchy.

So in terms of what we already have on the present market and constant news of up and coming tablets in 2011, including the iPad 2, does Toshiba stand any chance of positioning itself high above the rest? Only time will tell.
