Toshiba Plans 2011 Tablets for Windows, Android, and Chrome

By  |  2 Comments

In the category of we’d rather not put all of eggs in one Tablet/Slate basket, comes word that Toshiba is planning to unveil three different Tablet/Slate flavors, one each for Windows, Android, and Chrome. Look for these to hit at CES 2011.

According to DigiTimes these aren’t of the small variety, instead two will be of the 10 inch variety and one a whopping 11.6 inches. It all points to the fact that those trying to define the market still have a long way to go. You can’t blame an OEM for hedging its bets in a world where no one knows how this is going to shake out. The Chrome entry surprises me a bit, (if that does come to pass) but perhaps we’ll learn more about a Chrome OS today, when Google releases some news on that. Xavier is attending that announcement so hopefully he’ll have some good observations to share later in the day or tomorrow.

    As a fairly loyal Toshiba user (2008 Portege M700 UK, upgraded to Windows 7 Ult) I’m pleased to read this, but I’d be more excited if there was a 7″ or 8.9″ version and that an active digitiser is guaranteed for the Windows 7 version.

    Ah, I see the last paragraph in the DigiTimes hints at 7″, but with practical handwriting? I suspect the CES Windows version will be an attempt to counter the Fujitsu T580.
