Toshiba Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet gets FCC approval

Toshiba is taking its Android tablet plans very seriously – and the few we’ve seen so far aren’t half bad – so it’s good to know that the FCC just approved two Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets that Toshiba is planning to release. According to the report, the two tablets – the ET100 and WT100 – have just been approved for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth use, and the two models seem identical. Perhaps the differences might be in cellular network radios?

Toshiba is still working on a name for its two tablets, which could be crucial in getting them to stick in people’s minds, but not nearly as important as the hardware specs and build quality:

Toshiba’s still unnamed tablet will offer an impressive feature set that includes a 10.1-inch LED display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor running at 1.0GHz, up to 32GB of internal storage with additional storage supported via SD slot, front (2MP) and rear (5MP) cameras with 720p video capture, a full size HDMI port and an optional dock.

Not bad for its serious entry into the Android Honeycomb tablet market. The only question is whether it can compete with an Android tablet I loved – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that I spent some time with at CTIA 2011 in Orlando, FL. We’ll see!

  • spec list is rather similar to Asus Transformer. down to the optional dock, too

  • Do you have the image leak of this Android Tablet by Toshiba?

  • all the android tablets look similar now. i hope google lets these device makers create their own UI skins and add their own tweaks and apps. without this difference, new tablets would be quite boring.
