Toshiba sure likes to tease us with its upcoming Android-powered tablet. It even thinks that its product is superior to Apple’s iPad 2. So superior, it would seem, that it doesn’t even need a name under which to be sold. The device is still known simply as ‘Toshiba 10.1-inch Android Tablet’, even if it has already received a product page at Amazon.
That page has uncovered many pictures of the tablet, alongside some more details about it. The Toshiba tablet is powered, not at all unexpectedly, by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. It has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera for video calls, and its touchscreen has a resolution of 1280×800.
In the connectivity department we have Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, a miniUSB port as well as a full-size USB port, an SD card slot and HDMI out port. The battery and the back cover are replaceable. A docking station with “additional connectivity ports” is also in the works, but there are no more details about it yet.
The tablet will run the tablet-optimized Android 3.0 Honeycomb and will have access to the Android Market. As for a release date, or even a product name, it’s anyone’s guess at this point. For the launch, Toshiba has apparently said that it will happen in the first half of this year, so that gives it until June 30 to keep that promise. And we’ll see if by then they’ll be able to come up with a name for this product.
