Toshiba delays Android 3.0 tablet

Awaiting quad-core chippage?

Toshiba's second Android tablet, the follow-up to last year's Froyo-based Folio 100, has been pushed back.

Announced in the US at the start of the year, the 10in Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet was originally set to arrive in the UK during Q2.

But Ken Chan, Toshiba UK's business laptops boss, today told Reg Hardware the tablet will now not debut until Q3.

"It'll be here at the very end of summer," he said.

As originally specced, the gadget will sport a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen, contain an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, and combine 0.2Mp and 5MP front- and rear-facing cameras. You can add to that HDMI, USB - mini and full size - SD and analogue audio portage, and 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Chan would not be drawn as to why the tablet will arrive a quarter later than previously announced.

It's very tempting to conclude that the company has decided to wait for Nvidia's next generation of Tegra processors - perhaps even the quad-core flagship chip, 'Kal El' - though we can't rule out the component supply issues that have hit a number of tablet market entants since the Japanese earthquake. ®
