Toshiba's new tablet shows up at Amazon

Written by Slobodan Simic

Tegra 2 and Android Honeycomb
Since its first Folio 100 tablet wasn't a big success, Toshiba promised a new one that would be much better and it looks like we will see this one pretty soon since it has already appeared at Amazon's website. Powered by Tegra 2 SoC and working on Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS, the new tablet has a 10.1-inch multi-touch screen and all the other goodies that you would expect to see on a slate device.

Amazon listed all the specs including the one that this 10.1-inch 1280x800 multi-touch screen with Adaptive Display technology will be run by Nvidia's Tegra 2 chip. The OS is listed as Android 3.0 Honeycomb while the rest of the specs include a 2MP front cam and a 5MP one on the back capable of 720p recording.

The device also has WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, gyroscope, accelerometer, e-compas, GPS, SD card slot, mini USB and full size USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output, user-replaceable battery and access to Toshiba Places which is Toshiba's version of app market. It also comes with a Easy Grip interchangeable backplate which does look pretty good.

Although the listing is quite detailed when it comes to specs and pictures it unfortunately lacks the two most important details -  the price and actual availability date. Toshiba did talk about this tablet before and the only info that came out is that it should be available by the middle of this year. Hopefully, we'll see more info pretty soon.

You can find it here.
