While Toshiba's original attempts at an Android tablet running on the Tegra chip didn't exactly go down a storm, they seem keen to continue with Android devices, and brought a new tablet with them to CES. Artem got a video demo from one of their reps, and as you can see there are some attractive features to note.

Like the Motorola XOOM, the nameless Toshiba tablet (henceforth "Anon") has a 10.1" WXGA (1280x800) screen, which was unsurprisingly nice and crisp. It also sports the convenience of full-size USB and HDMI ports, along with a full SD card slot allowing for storage expansion up to 64 GB.

The Anon was running Froyo, but will launch with Honeycomb. Even though the device was clearly in the relatively early stages of development (Spare Parts was visible on the desktop), the desktop's scrolling was surprisingly responsive. It's unclear what the future holds for the Anon but the early signs are much more promising than Toshiba's last attempt.

    do we have a winner here?
    I mean screen looks great, full sd card slot, hdmi, full usb and mini usb.
    Just bring it on toshiba with stock honeycomb and this thing will fly.
    At a price tag around 350-400 euros this thing will be ideal...

    I think the Xoom looks better (hardware wise).

      Yes Xoom does look better but Google and Motorola seems to have fallen in love with the concept of tagging a cell phone carrier which is not just annoying but a total rip off! I don't know what Google really has to gain at this point by getting intimate with carriers, they all used them and now found their other soul mates in Apple! Come'on Google, its time to break away from all this BS!

        Yeah, I guess I'd have to agree with that. As Android Police already said on Twitter, the 3G/4G thing is kind of useless, especially since most of us already have phones that create mobile hotspots. Sigh.
