Toshiba is not exactly making it easy for people to get excited about its tablet offerings having failed miserably with its first attempt and now keeping us in the dark about its latest device.
First spotted by us back at CES in January, Toshiba’s rubber-backed tablet didn’t have a name but looked pretty impressive all the same. Since then we’ve had a proper hands-on with the device and found it to be an interesting prospect – despite it still remaining nameless. Today however we see that the 10.1 Toshiba tablet has been put up for pre-order in Japan under the name Regza AT300, for the tidy price of 60,000 yen (£445). The tablet will ship to customers in Japan this June but we still don’t know when or in what form it will make an appearance here or anywhere else in the world.
The 10.1 inch tablet has a 1280x800 resolution display running Android Honeycomb and powered by nVidia’s Tegra 2 processor. It has USB, HDMI and a full-sized SD card slot (up to 128GB) to take care of all your connection needs as well as a five megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera should you want to take a picture with the tablet. One of the stand-out features is the EasyGrip back covering the rear which makes sure you won’t be dropping it that easily. At CES Toshiba told us it planned on shipping the device in the first have of 2011 and a June arrival date would just about keep them honest.
While we continue to hope this tablet will make it to our shores some time soon but considering Toshiba’s record to date, we won’t be holding our breath.
