After details of a possible 10.1-inch Tegra 4 tablet from HP emerged, news of a model in development by Toshiba quickly appeared. The device, like the HP model, recently showed up on an AnTuTu benchmark, but now actual images and additional information have arrived including news that it will be based on Tegra 4.
According to Techblog, the Toshiba AT10LE-A will have a 10.1-inch display backed by Android 4.2.1 and a Tegra 4 SoC clocked at 1.8 GHz. The report also states that the tablet is a higher-end device, and includes a memory card slot, mini HDMI output and a USB port tucked away in a covered I/O panel on the left side.
Screenshots also indicate that the tablet is designed to work with an external docking station featuring a full QWERTY keyboard and dedicated Android keys like Home, Back and Menu. The keyboard itself doesn't seem to sport a touchpad, but that really doesn't matter given Android supports Bluetooth-based mouse input. There's also no indication that the dock has an extra battery to extend the tablet's up-time.
Unfortunately, there are no other details surrounding the tablet at this time. Still, based on this sighting and the previous HP SlateBook x2 appearance, it seems that Nvidia's quad-core chip, which made its introduction in January, is finally beginning to saturate the tablet market. We expect to hear more about these two devices later on this month during or slightly after Google I/O.
