Toshiba has already spend a good deal of time talking up its forthcoming Honeycomb tablet, but one thing the company hasn't mentioned - yet - is the device's name. However, if you believe Dutch website TabletGuide.nl, NVIDIA might have spilled the beans - at its MWC booth, the chip maker reportedly showed off a prototype of the tablet loaded with stock Android 2.2. And in the "About phone" section of the Settings app, the tablet listed "Antares" as its model number.

It's worth noting that this may not be the name of the final retail unit - not to mention the fact that a handset's model number isn't always the same as its title. That said, I doubt the Settings app mentioned "Antares" for no reason, and naming a tablet after a star doesn't sound completely absurd.
