Toshiba Unveils Android Tablet

Toshiba has unveiled its first Android-powered tablet PC, one day before the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is scheduled to take off in Las Vegas.

The device, which was unveiled alongside other rivals to the Apple iPad's dominance of the market, was seen running on Android 2.2 but Toshiba hopes to include Android 3.0 when the device is shipped to the public.

The company is yet to give the prototype device a name.

“It'll come out in the spring of 2011 and the price, we haven't decided yet,” a Toshiba spokesperson said.

The device comes with a 10-inch screen and will run on a Nvidia Tegra processor. The tablet will also come with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and two front and rear facing cameras. The front facing camera will be 2MP while the rear facing one will be 5MP.

The company also unveiled a new glasses-free 3D laptop and two prototype glasses-free 3D TVs set for launch in FY 2011.
