Diego Garcia imagined a very interesting Toshiba tablet concept, one that runs Windows 8 and uses Wacom technology for those who like to design. Connected to a special keyboard dock, this device turns real quick into an ultrabook. There’s also a stylus in the mix, hidden inside a special area of the slate.
The Toshiba tablet comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports, a SIM slot, a microSD card slot, loud speakers and when the keyboard dock is attached you get a multitouch pad, 3 USB ports, an Ethernet port and HDMI out. This concept device uses a 12.1 inch display with Wacom technology (2048 levels of pressure sensitivity), and an IPS panel with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. Inside we benefit from the power fo the Intel Core CPU, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. Windows 8 is the OS of choice here, the most modern choice of course.
This is a tablet focused on sketching, drawing and creating graphics-based projects. ASUS Slate EP121 is seen as its main rival, but the designer considers such models too expensive, so he created an alternative. The Toshiba Windows 8 tablet concept also includes 4 rotating balls at the bottom of the tablet, that allows it to move and rotate on the table. If you want dimensions, the tablet measures 15.5mm in thickness, so it’s almost double the size in waistline compared to the ASUS Transformer Prime. If we combine the slate and keyboard into a package that’s below $1200 or even $1000, this could become a very interesting product.

Toshiba has been known for a bit for having the thinnest tablet in its portofolio and this week they also unveiled some future concepts of tablets. One of them is a particularly interesting 13.3 inch device, that’s speculated to come with Windows 8 and apparently has a quad core CPU on board, of unknown identity. Some say this is Tegra 3 material…
At 13.3 inches, this is more of a laptop than a tablet, if you ask me and it’s far from the definition of a portable tablet. In case you were wondering, the 13.3 inch Toshiba tablet couldn’t be turned on during the showcasing, so it may have been a dummy unit, or one that will actually never hit the market. What the people who touched it can say is that the evice is very light and I bet it’s also thin, since Toshiba has been developing compact designs lately.
The other model is a 7.7 inch Toshiba concept tablet (last 2 pictures below) with an AMOLED screen, so this maybe be a rival to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. This slate runs Android 4.0 and it’s supposed to feature a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The colours of the screen look superb, or at least so said the people who saw and touched the device. So, what you do you say? Would you ever buy a tablet as big as 13.3 inches in diagonal or go with the 7.7 incher from Toshiba?

CEATEC 2010 is about to end and during the show Toshiba found the time to showcase a prototype Android 2.2 tablet, that’s pictured below. The device was shown in order to promote the Book-Place service created by Toshiba.
Nothing much to detail here…
As far as specs are concerned, it is speculated that the slate comes with a 10 inch display, 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and webcam. It this a relative to Folio 100 or simply another product?
