Toshiba Honeycomb Tablet Dubbed ANT; Are You Okay with Such a Name?

April 16, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It’s called the ANT! Curious about what it is? We are talking of the tablet that will soon roll out of the Toshiba stables. Going by the latest product listings at Newegg, the Honeycomb tablet that Toshiba is readying for release has been dubbed ANT. The device is said to come with price tags of $449.99, $499.99 and $579.99 for the three different versions to be known as ANT-100, ANT-102 and ANT-104.

The tablets will come equipped with a 10.1-inch panel of 1280 x 800 resolution like that of the Motorola Xoom. It will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, as mentioned above, and that could be one of the key features of the device.

The product also incorporates advanced Tegra 2 Nvidia silicon processor as well as the Toshiba Adaptive Display technology. It has a 2-megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

Connectivity capabilities will be taken care of by WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth. It will also sport a full-sized USB 2.0 port and a miniUSB port, a full-sized SD card slot and an HDMI port. The rubberized back panel is user-interchangeable. So is the battery.

We believe the device will definitely bring to you the finest web experience and a spate of HD multimedia content – including rich console-like games and movies.

However, we have a feeling that the moniker sounds rather unattractive and dull. Don’t you also think so? Who knows if it actually means Android Tablet or Another Tablet! But then we need to wait to know if that is its real name.

Also, we are trying to get details on a possible release date. Hope you remember the previous rumors that had suggested that the slate will hit the stores in the first half of 2011.

May be, it won’t take long. Try and track the special page that Toshiba has posted for the tablet, and you might get to know when it would really come. In the meantime, here’s a video you would want to watch.
