CES outing for 'world's thinnest' tablet, Ultrabook, says Toshiba

IFA-announced gadgets to make US debut next week

Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook

Toshiba, for one, seems keen to continue offering netbooks in spite of the rise of the tablet - it's going to show off a new model at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Dell and Samsung may be exiting the netbook biz - possibly prematurely, since netbook shipments actually went up during 2011 - but Toshiba is sticking in and will out the NB510 next week.

The new machine sports the usual 10.1in, 1024 x 600 display but is based on Intel's new Atom N2800 chip. It'll have 1GB of 800MHz DDR 3 and a 320GB hard drive, Notebook Italia reports.

The NB510's look broadly matches that of the existing NB500 (above), though some of the ports have been shuffles around.

Toshiba will also be using CES to bring the "world's thinnest" 10.1in tablet and Ultrabook to a US audience. Europeans have seen them already: both were unveiled at the IFA show in Berlin in September 2011.
