We as consumers are still awaiting details on which upcoming devices will be running NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processor this year. News out of Greece today shows that a tablet made by Toshiba could be one of the first, as it has popped up on the web sporting a few notable features.
According to recent reports, Toshiba is working on a camera for smartphones and tablets that will allow users to focus on certain points in images well after the photo has been taken. If this sounds familiar, it’s because Lytro, a device that Kellex was fascinated with for about 48 hours, does this same effect. Once a picture is taken, you can then go back and re-focus on any point in said image. It’s neat, but when can we expect to see it in our phones?
Can you believe it? It’s day 5 of Reader Appreciation Week, meaning this is the last of the mega-giveaways. How quickly did that go? We already gave away a Nexus 7, Toshiba Excite 10, HTC One X, and a Transformer Pad with matching keyboard dock. To put it loosely, this has been one heck of a week.
To finish it out, we have a Toshiba Excite 7.7 up for grabs thanks to our friends at NVIDIA. This is a tablet that most overlooked because of its steep price tag. If you take a look at reviews around the web though, you’ll quickly realize that this is quite the little package. It sports a 7.7″ AMOLED display, Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD slot for expandable storage, and dual cameras.
Who wants it?
Day 3 of Reader Appreciation Week is here! On day 1, we gave away a Nexus 7. Yesterday, we gave away an HTC One X. Today, well, let’s go big (as in screen size) and hook someone up with a Toshiba Excite 10. While we may not have given the Excite 10 a ton of love as it arrived during a time when 10″ tablets were flooding the market and rarely stood out from one another, it’s safe to say that this device is no slouch. Thanks to its Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 10.1″ Autobrite Gorilla Glass display, dual cameras, and variety of ports (including a full sized SD card slot), it matches up nicely to most tablets in the industry on paper.
Who wants one?
Toshiba’s next entry into the Android tablet world is here with the Excite 10 launching today. The 10.1″ tablet comes in three different storage sizes; 16, 32 and 64GB. Currently the 64GB can only be pre-ordered but the other two sizes are up for grabs if you’re looking to order them from Amazon or Toshiba directly. While this may not be the 13″ monster we are waiting for, it is no slouch itself.
Back in January at CES, we rolled by the Toshiba booth and caught a glimpse at their upcoming super portable 13″ television. The folks working the booth informed us that it was actually a tablet and not a TV and would in fact, be making its debut this year. We were shocked, confused, a little worried, and then proceeded to snap pictures and find out more info on it.
Toshiba Thrive To Receive Ice Cream Sandwich By End Of Spring, Acer Iconia Begins Receiving Update Now
It may be hard to believe, but there are devices still out there that have not received the update to Ice Cream Sandwich yet. I know, it’s unbelievable. The Toshiba Thrive and the Acer Iconia tablets are just two of the devices on that list. Well, you can now mark off the Iconia tablet, as Acer has begun to push out ICS to the A200 tablet starting last Friday. Congrats, Iconia owners.
As for the Thrive, owners have until the end of Spring to receive it on their devices, so the wait could be a couple more months. Word from Toshiba’s PR Manager is that both the 10.1″ and 7″ variations of the device will receive the Ice Cream love around that time frame. Could be worse – you could own a Thunderbolt.
In our last booth tour of the week, we hung out with the folks from Toshiba to see what they have in store for 2012. There were 4 tablets on display, some that will come to the U.S., others that will stay over in Japan. The most eye-popping was clearly the 13.3″ behemoth that you are seeing above. It current remains nameless and has a mystery list of specs, but our mind is already running through ways to put such a massive portable tablet in action. Assuming of course that it is portable at that size. It had all of the standard ports such as micro-HDMI and USB. There were dual cameras and a similar back material to what you will find on the Excite X10.
To see more of the beast, along with the rest of their 2012 works, jump past the break.
