Toshiba's thin and light batch of devices at CES 2012 will include a 10.1-inch tablet and a 13.3-inch ultrabook. A water-resistant tablet prototype tablet will also be on display.
A Japanese press release distributed by Toshiba (translation) reveals that the company plans to showcase the "world’s thinnest and lightest" 10.1-inch tablet and 13.3-inch ultrabook next week during CES 2012.
According to reports, Toshiba's 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet will only measure 7.7-mm thick and feature a 1280 x 800 resolution. Other hardware specs will include a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 SoC, a rear-facing 5MP camera, a front-facing 2MP camera, micro-HDMI output, and storage capacities of 16 and 32 GB.
Additional reports claim that Toshiba will also showcase an unnamed 7-inch tablet that will be completely different than the current Thrive model. It will reportedly feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a rear camera, microSD and microUSB ports. This one will likely take on Amazon's Kindle Fire, a "budget" tablet packing a dual-core Qualcomm SoC. In fact, this gadget will probably be one of MANY sub-$200 tablets we'll see at CES this year.
As for the 13.3-inch Toshiba ultrabook, there's speculation that the company could be referring to the Portege Z855. However in addition to the tablet and ultrabook, Toshiba reports that it will also showcase an 7-inch OLED reference tablet with wireless power charging and a water-resistant construction, and a 55-inch QFHD glasses-free 3D HDTV.
