Toshiba to challenge Apple with 10-inch Honeycomb tablet
Toshiba’s yet unnamed 10-inch Android 3.0, Honeycomb, tablet has been revealed in a number of hands-on images ahead of the device’s official unveiling at CES 2011.
Handed over to the folks at CNET, the Toshiba tablet, which features a 10.1-inch glass-covered, capacitive, LED-backlit display with multi-touch capabilities and a 1280 x 800p resolution will come sporting an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor and Adobe Flash support when it hits stores in the first half of 2011.
Running Google’s upcoming Honeycomb edition of the Android mobile operating system, much like the 10-inch Motorola device used by Google’s Andy Rubin to demo the future software release, Toshiba’s tablet offering is to come equipped with a bevy of connectivity options with a HDMI port, USB, mini-USB, SD card, in-built Wi-Fi, Bluestooth and GPS all as standard.
Further adding to areas missing from the current Apple iPad, the 10-inch Toshiba tablet is to pack dual cameras with a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper to be joined by a 5-megapixel camera on the rear.
Whilst Resolution+ video enhancement will allow for the upscaling of standard definition videos to that of near HD colour and contrast ratios, the upcoming device’s party piece comes in the form of its removable battery, a feature that none of the current breed of portable tablets boast.
