Toshiba Prepping Slates

Toshiba, like most other computer makers, is working on delivering slates to the market later this year. GM of of Digital Products for Toshiba, Jeff Barney is reported as saying that there will be a Windows 7 Tablet/slate and an Android version. The Windows 7 version will be dual screen, but there’s no elaboration on what that means. It will also be priced higher than the Android version.

Barney says Toshiba is looking at these as consumption devices and that Toshiba is working with content providers on partnerships. Like Netbooks, Barney doesn’t see Tablet/Slates as cannibalizing sales of other units, but sees it as an expansive market.

    Dual screen? Geeze. How about a good single screen slate that you can ink on and doesn’t weigh 3 pounds?

    The only company that I trust to make a 1 lb to 1.5 lb slate is Lenovo (tho Motion does a pretty good job as well). I’m having a hard time believing that either Dell or HP can do a good job. Hopefully Lenovo will give it a shot in the next year or so. I love my ThinkPad tablet.
