Best Buy will soon be able to boast another tablet on its inventory list. This time it’s going to be the Android tablet from Toshiba, which surprisingly is yet to be accorded an official name. Or perhaps Toshiba prefers for it to be referred to as just that – Toshiba tablet.
In any case, the tablet from Toshiba isn’t breaking any new grounds. The tablet will be another one running the Android Honeycomb operating system, which is quickly becoming common. The specs on board are pretty much the same. There is going to be the 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor beneath the 10.1 inch display that makes up the front of the tablet. The Toshiba tablet will have a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
The tablet will also come bundled with other features such as an HDMI port, a full size and a mini USB port, along with a 2 mp and a 5 mp camera at the front and rear of the tablet. A nice thing about the Toshiba tablet is that it will come with a full sized SD card slot and a user replaceable battery, while the added rubber padding along the rear of the tablet will make it easy to hold. The tablet is able to connect to the internet via 802.11b/g/n WiFi only, with no mention of 3G as of now.
There is also no news of when the tablet is going to be available or what it will cost when it does. That the tablet is only Wi-Fi enabled is perhaps the indication of the tablet to have an affordable price tag and won’t require one to break their bank to buy on of these Toshiba devices.
In any case, it looks to be another nice Honeycomb option soon to come our way.
