‘Toshiba Tablet’ is Toshiba’s new tablet (obviously), but this one looks like it’s a good alternative to the iPad. The screen is a 10.1-inch LED backlit multi-touch display, with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and 720p video playback. The tablet is 1.6 pounds and .62-inch thick. Toshiba states that the back of the tablet has an ‘easy grip surface’ due to ‘user replaceable covers.’ There are currently six different easy grip backs: black, white, pink, lavender, lime, and blue.
On the inside, there is a NVIDIA Tegra 2, 1GHz Dual-Core Processor, with 1GB of LP-DDR2 RAM. The tablet runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb, which means you can enjoy Flash videos while browsing the web. There is up to 32 GB of storage on board, and a full size SD slot. Other ports include: full-size USB 2.0, mini USB, full-size HDMI, headphone jack, dock connector, and a DC input. Toshiba is putting Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into the tablet, but no 3G. The battery is replaceable, and will last 23 hours, double that of the iPad’s. The tablet has a 2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera with digital zoom and 720p video recording. The tablet has five different kinds of sensors: gyroscope, accelerometer, ambient light, GPS, and E-compass. Toshiba has done a good job with this tablet. They seem to have taken the things that were missing from other tablets and put them in this device. I think it would have been worth while adding 3G or 4G, even as an option. Amazon currently doesn’t have a price for this device, but they will notify you when that is available. What do you think of this new tablet? Does it match up to other tablets in the market?
