Toshiba Honeycomb tablet named ANT, prices start from $450
We first saw Toshiba's mysterious 10.1-inch tablet at CES (hands-on here) running Froyo, then at MWC it was already running Android Honeycomb, but at both events we were left wondering about the name of the tablet. Now, that secret is unveiled as the tablet will be named Toshiba ANT, but what's even more important, it will ship in three different versions with prices starting from $450. Product listings on Newegg initially revealed there will be an 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models, but have later been removed:
Toshiba ANT-100 (8GB).................$450
Toshiba ANT-102 (16GB)...............$500
Toshiba ANT-104 (32GB)...............$580
The tablet sports an NVIDIA Tegra 2
dual-core chip clocked at 1GHz, responsible for the smooth
performance of Honeycomb on a 10.1” display with resolution of 1280
x 800 pixels. Battery life is rated at 7 hours, powered by a
replaceable 6-cell battery.
The Toshiba ANT also has a 5-megapixel rear snapper with auto focus, while on the front there is a 2MP camera, perfect for video conferencing. Media playback is aided by stereo speakers, an HDMI port, full-size USB, a mini-USB port and SD card slot. The tablet space is getting more crowded by the day, but could such a price buy you into the Toshiba ANT slate?
