As of late, there has been a lot of talk about Toshiba's upcoming-but-still-unannounced (in the US anyway) Android 3.0 tablet, but now things are starting to speed up. Toshiba has officially announced the "Regza" tablet - the Japanese version of the tablet that we're pretty sure will be called the Thrive. It sports the same specs that we've known about for a while now:

  • 1Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB Internal storage, SD Card slot
  • 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
  • 10.1 inch, 1280x800 display
  • HDMI, miniUSB, and USB ports

It also includes a feature called Regza App Connect, which links the tablet up to other Regza devices.

If there's one thing we still don't know for sure about the Toshiba Android tablet, it's its name. At this year's CES, when the product was first announced and demoed, Toshiba refused to give up the name, simply referring to it as "the unnamed Toshiba tablet." The company then followed up with the site named just TheToshibaTablet.com, leaving us guessing and puzzled as to why it takes months to give a gadget a name.

The unnamed dual-core 10.1-inch Toshiba Android tablet that we got to play with at CES this year has oddly remained anonymous for an extraordinary amount of time - in fact, we still don't really know what its final name will be. An earlier rumor suggested it could be called "Antares," and today's freshly discovered Newegg pages curiously neither confirm nor deny that name, simply listing its 3 variants as ANT-100, ANT-102, and ANT-104.

Over a month after Toshiba first demoed its Android Honeycomb tablet with an awesome teaser site, Amazon has  put up a product page featuring the tablet with its specifications and capabilities.  The tablet cannot actually be purchased from Amazon yet and there is also no word on pricing or when it will finally become available.

As expected, the tablet's specs are as follows:

  • 10.1" display (1200x800)
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • 5.0 MP rear camera with autofocus
  • 2.0MP front-facing webcam
  • Stereo speakers
  • USB, mini-USB, and HDMI ports
  • SD card reader
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi  connectivity
  • Gyroscope, Accelerometer, e-Compass, GPS and Ambient Light
  • Screen rotation lock switch
  • User replaceable battery
  • Interchangeable rubber backplate, available in a variety of colors

Let us at least hope that Toshiba come up with a name for this device before it starts shipping.

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.

Toshiba's Android tablet (it remains unnamed) just got an awesome teaser site, complete with specs, 360-degree view, gallery, and confirmation that the device will be running Honeycomb at launch.

We got some personal time with the Toshiba tablet back at CES, and were thoroughly impressed with its tactile rubber finish and large, glossy display. We'll give you a quick refresh on the specs:

  • 10.1" display
  • Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • Stereo Speakers
  • Landscape mode dock
  • HDMI out
  • USB 2.0 port
  • MicroUSB port
  • Headphone and microphone jacks
  • User-replaceable battery
  • Combined volume, screen orientation, and power buttons
  • Full-size SD card slot

The Toshiba tablet is definitely packing some serious heat in the features department, and it's only the second Android tablet I've seen that I might genuinely be interested in buying.

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.

Aren't excited enough for CES yet? Toshiba might have just what's necessary to get your saliva going - namely, a Tegra 2-powered Honeycomb tablet.

The specs are really the most impressive part of this story, so let's get right to them:

  • 10.1-inch capacitive 1280x800 display
  • "Adaptive Display" technology, aka an ambient light sensor
  • Accelerometer
  • 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing
  • USB, miniUSB, and HDMI ports
  • SD card slot
  • 1.7 pounds in weight; 0.6 inches in thickness

Unfortunately, its name is still a mystery - hopefully, this will be resolved at CES.

Today we are getting a first look at the Toshiba Folio tablet, an Android based powerhouse that was announced at IFA 2010. The Folio looks like it will be another serious contender in what is, apparently, the fast growing market of Android tablets. Looking at its list of features, it should be nothing less than impressive. What features, you ask? How about these:

  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 10.1" 1024x600 display
  • Bluetooth
  • Front facing camera
  • WiFi 802.11B/G/N
  • 3G capable
  • Nvidia Tegra 2 processor (Yeah, that's dual-core)
  • Capacitive display with multitouch support
  • USB host input(!!!)
  • Price €399 WiFi / €499 WiFI & 3G

The tablet looks like it is shaping up to be an awesome device, but based on what we're seeing right now, it still has some hills to climb.

MobileCrunch is reporting via Japanese site Sankei Digital [JP] that Fujitsu is planning on manufacturing an Android handset for the Japanese market. Apple currently dominates the smartphone market in Japan, largely because the Japanese smartphone market was fairly bland before Apple entered the foray.

Japanese phones have tended to focus on high portability, social connectivity, and gadgetry over advanced software or bigger displays. The iPhone changed all that, and created a market for devices with larger displays and modern smartphone operating systems.
