Toshiba has promised to unveil what it claims will be the world’s thinnest & lightest 13.3-inch Ultrabook, as well as the thinnest and lightest tablets at 7-inches and 10.1-inches wide, which will be on show next week during CES 2012.
According to Toshiba’s Japanese website, the company will be showcasing the “world’s thinnest and lightest Excite (AT200) tablet” at CES. Which measuring 7.7mm in thickness, the tablet is speculated to sport a 10.1-inch organic EL display with 1280×800 resolutions and is likely to support wireless charging. Powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4430 processor, the tablet will include a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera, 1GB of memory, and micro HDMI out. Storage options are speculated to be either 16GB or 32GB. Given that Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is out of the bag, it could be running that OS rather than Honeycomb.
As for the 13.3-inch Toshiba Ultrabook, there’s speculation that the company could be referring to the Portege Z855. However in addition to the tablet and Ultrabook, Toshiba reports that it will also showcase an 7-inch OLED reference tablet with wireless power charging and a water-resistant construction, and a 55-inch QFHD glasses-free 3D HDTV, according to a translation of the announcement.
However, Toshiba’s new Android Honeycomb-powered 7-inch tablet currently unnamed; has leaked out yesterday. The black and blue slate features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and will have 1024X600 resolution display, rear camera but no LED flash, microUSB port, microSD slot, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. A leaked image also reveals three capacitive buttons, leading us to believe it will not be running Android 3.2 Honeycomb or Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. With the low priced segment starting to take off we can expect a wide array of sub-$200 tablets hanging out at CES.
