Toshiba shows again its 10" Honeycomb tablet with a removable battery and swappable back covers
We got a hands-on moment with the Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet from Toshiba at the CES show a month back (it was running Froyo then), but the company used the MWC Expo to showcase it again.

Still called just the Toshiba Tablet, the dual-core Tegra 2-powered slate will differentiate itself with a removable battery, so you don't run out of juice, and interchangeable back covers with EasyGrip finish in a variety of colors.

Both are certainly nice features to have that will make it stand out amidst the competition, but the Toshiba tablet has more to offer, like a 10" LCD screen with 800 x 1280 pixels of resolution, 5MP rear camera with Full HD video recording and 2MP front-facing one, HDMI-out port, GPS, stereo speakers with surround sound, capacitive Android buttons, and will also come in 3G flavor.

Similar to the Acer Iconia Tab A500 (hands-on here), the tablet of Tosh has a full USB port, but it also adds a miniUSB one for hooking up peripherals, like cameras. There is also a dock connector for docking station, sold separately.

Toshiba clarifies on its dedicated website for the tablet (link in the source below) that the screen has 16:10 aspect ratio with HD quality resolution, so as your HD movies look as their creators intended, plus the tablet has another enhancement called Resolution +, to boost color and image quality.

The 10" Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet from Toshiba is expected to appear on shelves in April for an undisclosed price. Have a look at the removable battery at the picture below. The prototype carried a 2030mAh battery pack, which should be bumped way up for the final version, since the rep says in the video below that when Honeycomb is on the tablet, they are targeting about 7 hours of video playback on a charge. We can't wait to get our hands on what might turn out one of the best Android tablets this year.
