Toshiba will announce a new, yet unnamed 10.1-inch Android tablet this week at CES, Engadget reports.
The device is not yet ready for production as it awaits the new version of Android (Honeycomb), which is believed to be optimized for tablets. However, it has a really interesting set of features: a dual-core Tegra 2 chip, a capacitive, 1280×800 resolution display, and a 5-megapixel back camera as well as a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls.
It also packs a full-sized USB and a mini-USB jack, HDMI, an SD card slot, and a rubberized, spill-resistant, replaceable back cover. It’s a very decent set of specifications; the only detail that spoils the picture by just a little is the weight: 1.7 pounds compared to iPad’s 1.6 pounds (3G+Wi-Fi model), but we don’t believe it’ll be a deal breaker for most users.
