Toshiba Honeycomb tablet
We don’t want to bore you with too many tablets today, but Toshiba’s latest venture is actually a pretty sweet piece of kit. It’s the first tablet to ship with built in Android Honeycomb, an interface designed specifically for tablet users with a greater functionality. You get a rather attractive 10.1 inch screen with 1280×800 resolution and supports Adobe Flash. It uses Bluetooth and WiFi, with no sign of 3G connectivity at present.
It features a motions sensor which automatically adjusts the device from portrait to landscape when you turn it, and the Adaptive Display changes the brightness and colour contrast to give you the perfect picture, wherever you are.
The tablet features a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and displays 1080p HD video playback. It uses Toshiba Resolution video enhancement technology to give standard definition content a sleeker finish- not quite upscaling, but close.
There are two cameras integrated into the tablet, a 2 megapixel frontward facing camera, and a 5 megapixel rear camera. It’s lacking a flash however, which seems like quite an oversight.
The tablet is completely equipped for multiple connections, and comes with a comprehensive list of ports. You get a HDMI port, an SD card slot, a mini USB port AND a regular USB port- a great addition, and one that users will appreciate.
One of the nicer elements of the Toshiba tablet is the EasyGrip finish, which gives the back of the tablet a nice rubberized grip, which can be interchanged with a variety of custom colours, to make it more unique.
The still un-named tablet with be out in the first half of 2011, price TBA.
