    Toshiba just brought us a little something for those Android lovers that want something similar to the iPad. This new tablet brings together the hardware needed to bring you a great tablet experience, and unlike most, doesn't include a slow processor to limit your enjoyment. The features include the previously mentioned dual cameras, 5MP in the back and 2MP in front for those video call moments (Skype hopefully coming soon). The device is powered by a Tegra 2 dual core processor, which means you should see great performance out of the tablet and hopefully Honeycomb is optimized for this. The screen is a nice capacitive 1280 x 800-resolution display that incorporates the usual features, along with both accelerometer and ambient light sensors for an adaptive screen experience. The last thing to mention, spec wise, is the full sized USB and HDMI jacks, a single mini-USB socket, and an SD card slot.

    While we wait for Honeycomb to be released, and this device to come with it, Engadget had this to say about the tablet:

    Now I am sure this is what many of you were waiting for. It has specs of a great device, a processor to power that great device, and a new OS that is optimized for such awesome devices. Is there anything else you want in this tablet? How much would you pay for this? Let us know your thoughts..

    I would like to pay $350 for it but I believe its going to be priced around the Ipad and Galaxy tab...so I'm going to say around $450+ (with lowest internal storage) since its a Toshiba.

    Samsung 7" is already 499. I would say it is at least that price...depending on memory and ram of course. But otherwise it looks like a decent machine

    The only reason I was giving it a lower price was because Toshiba device (laptops, desktops, tv's, ect) are always a "lower priced" device compared to the larger brands like Dell, HP, Samsung. So we'll see...plus im hoping im right so its cheaper lol

    Perfect. I've been a lurker on this forum for quite some time, but seeing this has given me a reason to register.

    I have been so disappointed with the tablets I've seen so far, even the Galaxy Tab, but with CES starting up, and the announcement of tablets like this (dual core, high resolution, Honeycomb, etc) I can finally start deciding which family member I'm going to give my iPad to and which Android tablet I'm going to buy.

    I can't wait!

    I am sure after CES there will be a ton of tablets to choose from, and with the competition heating up....there will be competitive pricing. I am just going to wait it out.

    This looks good, in late spring I will be in the market for a new device either a Tablet or a sub-note book. (No Netbook for me)

    Toshiba laptops have served me well over the years, still have one that came with Win 98 ME that still works, running Win 2000.

    I hope they still build in the quality for their Tab.

    Hopefully this should be something positive. I've read a couple of articles over the last day that have said Android is or was not ready for the tablet market, however from what I've read regarding Android 3.0 Honeycomb, this new version is specifically geared towards working on a tablet device.

    I'm eager to get a tablet of some description, now I have considered an Ipad, but in honesty I don't think I could go for one. I'd definatley prefer an Android tablet. I did consider the Galaxy Tab, but reviews on that have been mixed, and its chunky size turned me off.

    The future is good, the future is Android!!! :D
