Toshiba tries again with second gen tablet

Snazzy Honeycomb hardware inbound

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

CES 2011 After Toshiba's shaky entry into the tablet market - exclusive UK retailer Dixons dropped it after a week thanks to software problems - the Japanese giant is having another go, this time upping the spec and waiting for Android 3.

The unnamed tablet, announced this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), sports a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 touchscreen, up from the Folio 100's 1024 x 600 and ready for 720p HD video.

It'll be driven by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, which will handle the graphics too and run Toshiba's Resolution+ upscaling software when you need to fill the screen with standard definition material. All of it can be presented on a TV thanks to a full-size HDMI port.

You get a front-facing 2Mp webcam, and a rear-facing 5Mp camera for snaps. The tablet will have GPS and a digital compass on board too. There's an SD card slot, Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus one mini USB and one full-size USB port .

Toshiba would only say that the new tablet - the Folio 200, perhaps? - will go on sale sometime in the first half of 2011. ®
