Back at CES 2012, we showed you three tablets displayed by Toshiba with the largest one sporting a 13.3 inch screen; this tablet was just displayed in the U.K. where the crew at PocketLint was able to get some pictures of the non-functional concept unit...

With a tablet this size, no way is it made for the average consumer.

Well, yes and no..
Average? Who is to say everybody is average? Do all buy Apple?
About senior people? Just wonder what they would say...

What I mean is that a tablet this huge will be heavy and hard to lug around, tablets are meant to be mobile, so you can have a lightweight computer in your hands that you can use anywhere, that's the reason most people choose a tablet over a laptop.
This tablet will be like the Galaxy Note of tablets, it's bigger than most people will find comfortable.

13,3" isn't that big if you think about it... My laptop has a 17,3" screen and I can easily imagine myself using a tablet that size, as long as it isn't super heavy. (>300g)

give us WQXGA or QSXGA resolution display depending on ratio and I'm sold :D

As long as its 720p I'm sold. This is the size that needs to be made into a model the same as the Asus Transformer. This model needs a keyboard dock! I would love to have a tablet this size. If it was 1080p, I wouldn't be able to keep my money in my pocket.

Has to be over 1080p and maybe even 1200+ because Asus/krApple/Huawei have already done it on a smaller screen. Though give me a 1200+ Super IPS with a keyboard dock and Tegra 4 and I'd preorder it the second it drops

Let us play Battlefield 3 on it with reasonable FPS, then we're on it like a boss.

Sometimes you just have to think outside the box, in this case read the Phonearena article
and then think about a tablet with an ultrabook dock and a desktop dock. I can easily imagine a 15-17 inch tablet combo, running Windows 8 of course.
