More information about Toshiba’s upcoming slate PC revealed
Fortunately for our brain cells, it appears that there will soon be no more need to carry out such speculations. Apparently, the Japanese OEM has just recently launched a dedicated microsite for this mystery tablet which contains some key information about what consumers can expect from its device, along with some juicy teasers.
Furthermore, additional information has been shed on the tablet’s
dual cameras: the front-facing camera is capable of taking still images at
resolutions of up to two megapixels, while the rear camera sporting a more
decent five megapixel resolution with autofocus capabilties. The
processor and firmware remain unchanged though: an NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC
and Android Honeycomb provides the tablet with the processing power and
functionality to compete in the market.
Lastly, Toshiba has confirmed that “screwdriver-savvy” users can easily switch out the battery in the tablet on their own. Needless to say, this opens the door to potential hardware tweaks and modifications at the hands of skilled DIY-ers.
Toshiba has left a footnote on its microsite claiming that consumers can
expect to see the device hit retail shelves sometime in Spring this
year. And with Chinese New Year around the corner, chances are red packet money is going to be in great demand for both the givers and recipients.
