Toshiba teases Android Honeycomb tablet

toshiba tablet Toshiba teases Android Honeycomb tablet
We had an early look at the Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet at CES 2011 but the company has now put up a teaser site for this unnamed device.
The site has a Flash-y intro which shows off all the features. This includes a 10-inch screen with 720p resolution and ambient light sensors to adjust the screen brightness, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing camera for video calling, SD card slot, USB port, HDMI out, headphone jack, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, GPS, motion sensors and more.
Even though it isn’t needed with the tablet version of the software, the Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet will have the four standard Android buttons on the bezel. We haven’t been able to dive into the latest version of the little, green robot to know if these standard buttons are even needed anymore.
Other than that, the Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet teaser page doesn’t reveal much more than we didn’t know: this device is poised to be a killer tablet in 2011. The lack of an official name is a little disturbing when you consider this device will be “coming this sprint,” but we definitely can’t wait to get our hands on this bad boy.
The Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet ranked high on our list of most-anticipated tablets of 2011 but it didn’t quite capture the top spot. In fact, it was only in the seventh slot as the iPad 2, Galaxy Tab 2, PlayBook, webOS device and a few others ranked ahead.
Still, I’m starting to think that this Toshiba Android Honeycomb tablet can be a dark horse in 2011, as the specs look out of this world, the look and feel of the device are very impressive and, hopefully, the software should run like butter. One thing is for sure, we will soon have a wealth of options to choose from so you can look for IntoMobile to let you know what we think is worth the cash.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
