Toshiba and Samsung start 13 mpx camera CMOS sensor production. With Sony monopoly lifted, megapixel war resumes

Do you know why we have so few 13 megapixel smartphones so far? And why even major smartphone OEMs have to reduce camera resolution to 8 megapixels in everything except flagships? See Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, or Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra. It’s because up until recently, nobody except Sony was able to produce a good enough quality 13 megapixel camera sensor chips in volume. And even Sony themselves couldn’t make enough of them, to...

Toshiba’s new 10″ tablet trio: Excite Pro and Excite Write with Tegra 4, $299.99 Excite Pure

Toshiba’s introduced some new tablets of its own, not to let Asus steal the spotlight for this week. The new devices are called Excite Pro, Excite Write, and Excite Pure. All are powered by Nvidia processors, with the latter sporting a Tegra 3. The Pro and Write come with Nvidia’s Tegra 4, so there will be no shortage of performance over there.

Toshiba AT10LE-A with Nvidia Tegra 4 processor gets photographed

Nvidia announced its latest mobile chipset, the Tegra 4, at CES in January. That said, we’re still waiting for the first device sporting it to be on the market. Things may change soon though. The Toshiba AT10LE-A may be one of the first shipping tablets to feature the new Tegra 4 CPU, alongside the recently uncovered HP SlateBook 10 X2. Hopefully the AT10LE-A will get an actual name before its release. This is going to be...

Toshiba launches 4.7 mm thin 13 MP camera sensor

Toshiba is set to release the thinnest 1/3 inch 13 MP camera sensor ever made. The module, named TCM9930MD, will be just 4.7 mm thick. It’s specifically designed for use in smartphones and tablets, and may show up in a flagship device or two in the future. The module’s pixel size is 1.12 µm, and you probably won’t see it in HTC devices anytime soon, since the Taiwanese company is focusing on bigger pixels with its...

Toshiba Thrive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update now available

The update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Toshiba Thrive is now out. We’re talking about the original Toshiba Android tablet, the 10-inch Thrive, and not its smaller sibling. The update was supposed to roll out this past spring, but it got delayed. Thankfully though, it’s actually a bit early, since it was pegged for a fall release after the delay. After applying the update, your tablet will run Android 4.0.4....
