CES: Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet unveiled

As yet, it has no official name, but the Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet has actually been officially unveiled.

According to Pocket Lint, the tablet has a 10.1-inch widescreen HD display and as you might have guessed, uses Android 3.0 (aka Android Honeycomb) for its operating system. In addition to that, it also packs Toshiba’s EasyGrip finish (think rubberised finish so less likely to be dropped) and will ship in a variety of colours, not just the predictable black pictured so far.

Beyons that exterior, you'll find a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip with integrated NVIDIA graphics for full frame-rate 1080p HD video playback, along with support for Adobe Flash 10.1. There's also a two megapixel front-facing camera and five megapixel rear-facing camera for photos, videos and video chat, plus integrated GPS and compass for location-based services. Plenty of connectivity too, including a full-size HDMI port, a full-size USB and a mini USB 2.0 port and an SD Card slot, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Available in the first half of 2011 say Toshiba, but no details as yet on that all-important price.
