Toshiba Tegra 2 Tablet Gears up for CES 2011; Release Likely During First Half of This Year

January 3, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Tablets are dime a dozen and the upcoming edition of CES will see more of those device being showcased. Among the many on show, will be a tablet from Toshiba, and the slate is likely to grab a few eyeballs considering that the company is lining up major plans for the device.

Toshiba’s upcoming tablet is yet to be christened. From what little info is available, the tablet will run on Android OS and will sport a 10.1-inch display.

Complete with a capacitive, high 1280 x 800-resolution display and an accelerometer, the tablet will also boast of ambient light sensor , which Toshiba calls Adaptive Display Technology.

Among the major features is the presence of dual-core Tegra 2 under the hood, and that itself could make ratings high for the Toshiba tablet. We expect the Android presence will be that of the Honeycomb.

Other features include a 5 megapixel rear camera, and it also as a 2 megapixel front-facing cam. USB and HDMI jacks, a single mini-USB socket, and an SD card slot complete the package.

All of 1.7 pounds in weight and 0.6 inches in thickness, the device has also been made extremely user friendly with the incorporation of EasyGrip features. This apart, the exterior is spill-resistant, and is coated with a rubberized garb. The coat is removable so as to allow changing of batteries.

Looking beyond CES 2011, we might get to see the Toshiba tablet being released in the first half of 2011. We will now wait to know what is on the pricing front.
