Toshiba Announces 10.1-inch Tegra 2 Tablet

By - Source: Engadget | B 7 comments

It’s day zero of CES, also known as Press Day, however the announcements have been coming fast and hard for the last couple of days. Earlier this week, Toshiba took the wraps off of the first of what we expect to be many Tegra 2-powered devices at CES.

Tegra 2 aside, Toshiba has actually managed to cram in some pretty decent specs. Packing a 10.1-inch, 1280x800 display, the tablet boasts a 5-megapixel camera in the back and a 2-megapixel camera in the front. Also present is support for USB, HDMI, mini-USB, SD and interchangable back covers (which means, yes, you can a replace the battery yourself).

Toshiba has yet to name a price for this little beauty and there’s no word on a release date as the company is supposedly waiting for Android Honeycomb before launching the device. With no price or release date, it would almost be silly to have a name, so Toshiba hasn’t revealed that either, but hopefully we’ll get a peek at it at CES this week. Perhaps we’ll be able to charm some information out of the Toshiba crowd too!

    Ooooo, I do believe that is the highest resolution display yet. With HDMI, USB, and with Honeycomb I think it might just have the beating of iPad 2.

    Eh, as much as I hate apple.. they have the largest and most well-known app store.
    Androids is coming along but most people just want those free new games that come out all the time. And the simple (and limited) OS.

    I've been looking for a WiFi pad so I can browse the Web while sitting with my family, instead of closeted in my workroom. The iPad was the best candidate; if this is light, it will be better.

    I'm looking forward to this year's announcements, and priming my wallet.

    Awesome. I wish they would stop announcing stuff and launch it already.

    Also, once they are launched, one would be hard-pressed to find reviews on this website. That is, unless they bear the apple logo, then we see all kinds of articles here.
    Point is, there are already some Android tablets out there, and not much in terms of reviews on this site. What gives? We get an "announcement" article, like this one, and then nothing...

    Damn, its sad when a tablet crams the same amount of pixels as my 14" laptop.
