Toshiba announces delays for next Android tablet

Toshiba has been around the computing market for a long time and when the tablet started to take off it stepped into the tablet realm. Last year Toshiba offered up an Android tablet running Froyo that was called the Folio 100. It has promised a follow-up to that tablet with a larger screen and some new features as well. That follow up tablet has been pushed back by Toshiba without much in the way of explanation.

The first time we heard about the new tablet it was using a 10-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution. It was also pegged for an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and the Android Honeycomb OS. Other specs included a 5MP rear camera and a 0.2MP rear offering. The tablet is also to have WiFi, SD card slot, and USB ports. With Toshiba not offering up any official reason for the delay, some rumors are starting to surface.

One rumor that might have some truth to it is that Toshiba is waiting for quad-core processor to put inside. That said components have been hard to come by for many companies in the tablet world so the delay could simply be along the lines of what Asus is facing with the Transformer. The new Toshiba tablet was originally expected in the UK during Q2. That has been pushed to Q3 with Toshiba's Ken Chan saying at the end of the summer.
