Toshiba 10.1-inch Android Honeycomb tablet announced

Japanese electronics giant Toshiba has announced that it will be releasing a brand new Android slate by spring to take on the spate of tablets announced at this week’s Mobile World Congress.

Dubbed the Toshiba Tablet, the device will house a rather massive 10.1-inch multi-touch display with a 16:10 widescreen ratio for video playback in 720p.

And in keeping with rivals’ efforts, the tablet will sport an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, a rear-mounted five-megapixel camera with autofocus and a front-facing two-megapixel webcam for video calling, plus a whole raft of extras including USB, mini USB and HDMI ports, an SD card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

But perhaps the best reveal of all is that it will run on Google’s tablet-optimised Honeycomb iteration of Android rather than Gingerbread, and of course boast Adobe Flash support out of the box. Toshiba has defied the industry norm by packing in a removable battery.

The tablet will be available with a choice of slip-resistant backs in five colours. It’s not clear yet whether or not it will support 3G, but we’ll let you know as soon we find out. Follow the link below to see the tablet in action.
