Toshiba’s New Tablet Leaks Ahead Of IFA

Toshiba’s New Tablet Leaks Ahead Of IFA


Toshiba’s upcoming Android tablet will be considerably thinner than its first effort, with micro SD, HDMI and USB ports a notable feature. Thin and light tablets are something of a legal quagmire at the moment, but if the leaked pictures are accurate, Toshiba might have something tasty indeed on its hands — if it can get it to market.

Leaks, or deliberate marketing strategy? That’s a tough one to call, but if it was a leak, Toshiba can join Samsung in having its IFA surprises spoilt prior to the kickoff of the trade show on September 1st.

Like the tablet itself, details are a little thin as to its exact specs, but these images posted on Notebook Italia show it in profile with the existing “Thrive” tablet — known as simply the Toshiba Tablet in Australia for bizarre trademark reasons — and it certainly looks a whole lot prettier than the Thrive. If the pics are real, we’ll know a bit more in just a couple of days.
