The Tablet Tease Begins: Toshiba Pulling Some of the Wraps Off Of 10.1 Inch Android Tablet

File this one under CES 2011 Tablet Tease. As expected Toshiba is announcing its 10.1 inch Android Tablet slightly ahead of all the fun and games at CES 2011. And why not announce early since it the new Tablet is going to be running Android 2.4 (Honeycomb) which won’t be out for a while yet.

Toshiba is looking at an end of June release date, run the NVidia Tegra 2 chipset and have the soon to be de facto standard of front and rear facing cameras. Although the design isn’t quite finalized yet (Hmmm?) we may or may not see USB, mini-USB, and SD card slots. No price is set yet, although Toshiba promises to be competitive with Apple’s iPad pricing. (Can you say wait and see?)

This is the first of the new breed of Tablets Toshiba will be releasing in the US, and in size and photo shopped imagery it looks strikingly similar (but not exactly) to the Tega V2.

    I hope when CES is over you’ll do a comparison of all the announced tablets including specs, OS, and likelihood of ever seeing them on shelves.

      I imagine we’ll do as thorough a job as we can on something like that. Thing is it is looking like some of these CES2011 announcements might actually get pushed back a bit. It will just mean a slower roll out and keep things more exciting throughout the year.

        Pushinig back these announcements more than a couple of weeks, will likely turn in to waiting for the iPad 2 announcement, evaluationg, repositioning, worrying, and then waiting for CES 2012.

        It’s now or never guys.

    Why the Tosh should wait for honeycomb that means will come out in late Q2 or early Q3, instead it can use a gingerbread so it will be on the market in Q1.
    More tablets are coming from various manufacturers (watch out for iPad 2.!), so people would have more choices but the sooner one will get more opportunity of making profit.
    The Tosh could still use a honeycomb on the next tablet later on (as 2nd generation or part 2) so it will make double profits.
    Time is money.!!!
