Toshiba is getting ready to launch its first Android Honeycomb tablet in the following months, and the company is confident that the device will be able to stand aside Apple’s new iPad 2 (which will be available in the US starting March 11).
Toshiba even believes that its tablet (pictured below) is superior to the iPad 2.
According to SmartHouse, Rob Wilkinson, General Manager of Toshiba Australia’s Information Systems Division, declared:
“We believe that our device is superior to the Apple device, it may be a little heavier (773g), but it does have a lot of features that the iPad 2 does not have.”
I wouldn’t go as far as saying that Toshiba’s 10.1 inch tablet has “a lot of” extra features, but the device does have some advantages over Apple’s new iPad, including the higher-resolution screen (1280 x 800 pixels), full-sized USB port, SD card support, and a removable battery.
Wilkinson also said that the dual-core tablet would be priced similar to the iPad 2 – so prices for the 32GB version may start at around 600 USD. We’ll bring more details as soon as we get ‘em.
