Toshiba shows off 5.1
Yesterday, Toshiba got a lot of CES buzz by showing off the 10" Excite X10 tablet, but it looks like that's not all there is to show. Now, we're seeing three more tablets on the show floor for Toshiba, and we're hoping to get more info on them later today. 

As you can see in the pictures below, the 5.1" tablet has an extremely elongated form factor, which would make one believe it could be a phone, but we don't see any speaker grill on the front, so it seems more likely it is a tablet. The 7.7" is a form factor that we've seen before, but the 13.3" is the real mystery here. We've seen 5" devices and almost every other size from 7" to 10.1", but 13.3" is huge. And, as you can see in the photo, there is no size saved with a smaller bezel on that tablet. 

Given Toshiba's history, we feel safe in assuming these are all Android tablets, and given that we don't see any buttons anywhere, we'll guess they are all running Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. But, beyond that, the only other info we have is that Toshiba is planning to release all of these devices this year. We'll bring you more when we get it.

13.3." display, yippee! I thought 10.1" would be the largest we'd see for a few years, glad to know I was wrong.

One issue I'd mention though is that it looks definitely like a widescreen phone, and after owning a 10.1" tablet and an HTC Sensation, I must remark on the fact that many apps aren't made for widescreen resolution

I cannot see the 5.1" tablet being a hot seller. With the Samsung Galaxy Note being released with voice features while having a 5.29" screen, I think that Toshiba should at least add voice features to the 5.1" tablet (Yes, I know Toshiba currently doesn't make phones, to my knowledge at least) to at least make the tablet more competitive in the market.
