Toshiba Launches Site For Honeycomb HD-Ready Tablet

Toshiba has released a teaser on a new site pointing towards its forthcoming Android Honeycomb-based tablet, one which the company hopes will erase all bad memories left by its predecessor, the Folio 100.

The site, Toshiba Tablet (opens in new tab), provides more details about the yet-to-be-named device that was launched at CES 2011.

We like the fact that it will be the first tablet with a proper HD ready screen (1280x720 pixels) and will offer the first user-removable battery on any mainstream tablet, allowing you to upgrade at a later stage.

There's an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core, Cortex A9-based processor, Wi-Fi, a 5-megapixel rear camera without flash (but with AF), a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, two SRS-certified speakers Wi-Fi, Flash compatibility, two USB ports, HDMI, a SDslot and a headphone jack.

Toshiba says that it will come with a slip-resistant back called EasyGrip, that will be available in five colours in total. The tablet will be able to output in full HD and Toshiba claims that the Resolution+ display technology on the tablet will enhance standard video to HD quality.
