CES 2011: Toshiba reveals next-gen Android tablet Toshiba has previewed its first Android-powered (Honeycomb) tablet for the U.S. market.
The tablet features a 10.1-inch diagonal widescreen high-definition (HD) display. The multi-touch display is ideal for viewing full websites and both landscape and portrait mode. The display's high definition 1280x800 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio also creates a cinematic experience for movie viewing and gaming.

To provide a full web experience, Toshiba emphasizes the support for Adobe Flash-enabled content. Adaptive Display technology ensures that users get the best visual experience, automatically adjusting the display’s brightness and color to the lighting environment.

It is powered by the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 with integrated NVIDIA graphics, delivering smooth, full frame-rate 1080p HD video playback.

The tablet will also feature a full host of connectivity options and ports that make it easy to integrate the device into everyday digital life, including a full-size HDMI port to easily share photos and video on an HDTV, a full-size USB and a mini USB 2.0 port for connecting external devices.

A full-size SD Card slot provides options for additional storage and transferring files. The device will also be equipped with Bluetooth for easy device connectivity and fast 802.11n Wi-Fi support for easily connecting to the web from home, the office or Wi-Fi hotspots.



The Toshiba tablet will be available in the first half of 2011 through major retailers, e-tailers and direct from Toshiba at ToshibaDirect.com as well as select Toshiba Preferred Partner Program resellers.
