Toshiba Unleashes 10.1-inch Honeycomb Tablet

Toshiba will add another tablet to its product range, one which will called Tablet and was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.

The Japanese company had put up a teaser website back in January mentioning the arrival of that 10-inch device, one which looks suspiciously like the old Folio 100.

Powered by Android Honeycomb, the device has a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. It is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC and has a VGA and 5-megapixel cameras without flash.

Other tidbits include HDMI, two USB ports, SD card reader, audio out, Wi-Fi and Toshiba's own "Adaptive Display Technology" which changes the brightness of the screen depending on the surrounding's lighting conditions.

Curiously, Toshiba has decided to cover the ports with a flap, something that may not go down well with everybody. The Toshiba Tablet also has a rather large frame which ensures that the user's grip on the device is firm.

Readers may remember that the Folio 100 was pulled from stores by DSGi after the high street retailer received an abnormally large number of complaints.
