The tablet war is soon to explode, and as affordable tablets keep rolling out, choices for the consumer are becoming very wide. Well, one of those budget-friendly tablets will be the Toshiba Tablet (which is what we have been calling it until now, and even Toshiba itself has), which is now listed at Newegg.com. Toshiba’s device seems to be called the Toshiba “Ant” (funny name, huh?), but it is unknown whether that is the actual name, or it is some sort of short name for “Android Tablet.”
Toshiba ANT Specifications:
- Android 3.0 Honeycomb
- 10.1 capacitive multi-touch screen / 1280×800
- 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor (dual-core)
- NVIDIA ULP GeForce GPU
- 1 GB of RAM
- 5 MP rear-facing camera / 2 MP front-facing camera
- 8/16/32 GB of internal storage
- SD Card slot
- WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, with bluetooth
- 1 USB / 1 mini-USB / 1 HDMI / 1 headphone jack
Whether it will be named after our hardworking buddies or not, this device is actually not running low on specs. There will be 3 versions of this tablet (only differentiating in internal storage): the 8 GB version (ANT-100) will cost $449.99, followed by the 16 GB version (ANT-102), which will go for $499.99, and lastly, the 32 GB one (ANT-104), selling for $579.99.
Along with tablets like the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and the Acer Iconia Tab, Toshiba’s ANT is coming to shake things up a bit for the Motorola Xoom, which is a great device, but many complain that it is somewhat overpriced. Strutting these specs, the Toshiba ANT’s price is not bad for a Honeycomb tablet, not bad at all…
There is still no word on release date, but now that Newegg has device listed (as “out of stock”), shouldn’t it mean that it is coming soon? If it does go for sell soon, will you consider buying one of these guys?
