Toshiba 10-inch Android Tablet: Kicks off CES plus VIDEO

Here at OSM we’re following all the news from CES 2011 and earlier this week posted about what we might see from Toshiba this year at CES and also posted another article about a Toshiba tablet expected, powered by a Tegra 2 chip. Now we’ve seen more of this device after an unveiling before the official start of CES.

The Toshiba tablet device is still unnamed but is likely to come out in Spring 2011. It was shown running on Android 2.2 but by the time of the release it’s expected to be running Android 3.0, Honeycomb which is being specifically aimed at tablets according to Martyn Williams of IDG News over on PCWorld. Honeycomb is being targeted for a May release so this is a good hint for a release date.

The new Toshiba tablet will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra processor and also features Toshiba’s Resolution Plus. It has a 10-inch screen, front-facing 2-megapixel camera and rear-facing 5 –megapixel camera and an SD card slot and you can see a video of the device below this story. For a great selection of photos of the device head to an article by Donald Bell over on ZDNet.

What are your thoughts on this new Toshiba tablet and do you think it will have what it takes to compete with all the other new tablets on the way such as the BlackBerry Playbook or the iPad 2? We’d welcome your comments on this.
