Toshiba is about to announce a tablet over in the US at the CES show which will boast a 10.1 inch display and will run Honeycomb, the forthcoming version of Android designed with tablets more in mind (than current builds of the OS which should really only be running on smartphones).
PCMag.com turned up with the skinny on the specs of this device which is slated for a mid-2011 launch (no pun intended) and is currently named the Toshiba Tablet (a working title, we hope).
The display’s resolution will be 1280 x 800 (720p), and it will come with an HDMI port to hook it up to an HD television for 1080p output. An Nvidia Tegra 2 will provide the grunt, and twin cameras will be on board, a 5 megapixel for snapping, and a front-facing cam for video chatting.
A USB port will also be included, an SD card slot, plus wi-fi but one notable feature missing that the iPad offers is 3G. Of course, the Toshiba Tablet will be capable of displaying Flash video, which the iPad can’t…
What will the damage be? Toshiba isn’t saying at this stage, save that it will be competitively priced in comparison to rivals such as the iPad.
