Toshiba's Android 3.0 tablet gets official unveil

Yes, it was flagged up during CES, but it's only this week that Toshiba has officially unveiled its new Android tablet. What's it called? Well, as far as we can ascertain, the tablet still doesn't have a name. Not really the best marketing move ever. Unless it's actually called the Toshiba tablet. That would be genius.

But despite lacking a name, the tablet has been shown off and detailed and looks like a contender. The Tosh tab (it can have that name for nothing) packs the tablet-friendly Android Honeycomb (3.0) for the operating system as you might expect, along with a 10.1-inch screen with 16:10 aspect ratio and 1280x800 resolution, which is 'perfect for enjoying movies' apparently.

Also on-board are dual cameras, presumably the two megapixel front-facing camera and five megapixel rear-facing camera previously mentioned, as well as the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor to keep things ticking over.


'The new Toshiba tablet will offer smooth multi-tasking, fast browsing and high quality gaming,' the company claims. 'The touchscreen will also feature Multi-Touch Control, and, combined with the intuitive Android interface, will offer easy navigation through menus and instant access to applications.'

Finishing things off is an integrated gyroscope and 3D accelerometer for gaming fun, GPS and compass for location-based services and extensive connectivity, 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.

Sadly, as well as lacking a name, the tablet also lacks a price and a launch date. If the company can get this to market soon, it might have a chance of a good market share. If we don't see it until the year end, the Toshiba tablet just might get lost in the crowd.
