Toshiba Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet to top iPad 2

It looks like Toshiba is getting ready to release an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet in the near future. According to a General Manager of Toshiba. He goes on to mention that it will not only compete with Apple's iPad 2, but that it will beat it and will be superior. That is a lot to stack up against, we know. The Motorola Xoom holds it's own though, and it does it well.

Apparently Smarthouse had the story, saying that Rob Wilkinson, General Manager of Toshiba Australia's Information Systems Division (ISD) said the following: "We believe that our device is superior to the Apple device, it may be a little heavier (773g) but it does have a lot of features that the iPad 2 does not have", he then mentions "We are confident that we can match Apple pricing for their new iPad 2 while delivering a device that is richer in features".

So far not a lot is known about this Toshiba tablet, but we can imagine it will have specs that are about the standard these days, especially with the above claims. So dual core (assuming Tegra 2), 32GB Memory, SD Slot, USB and HDMI Ports, as well as sporting a higher resolution than the iPad 2, same as the Xoom at 1280 x 800 pixels. The higher resolution, HDMI out, SD slot, and removable battery are a few of those superior features that Wilkinson's mentions. If the story and pricing holds true, come April or May we should have another tablet to compete and or beat the iPad 2, just like the Dual Core MSI Windpad, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be doing.

    It will compete, but not beat the iPad in sales…not this year. Look at all those ports… I got to admit, pretty cool

    I don’t think it will beat the iPad 2, but it looks to be exactly what I want. I have a Xoom…that is going back because of some annoyances (speakers on the back, and they’re bad; power button on the back that makes portfolio cases impractical). I really like Honeycomb, so I can’t wait!

    I keep hearing about this, however all I have seen is writing about this device. That it is going to come out this or next year. No wonder iPad is beating everyone they are beyond talking. They have show and tell and that is better than talk.
