New Toshiba Android Honeycomb Tablet Could be the Antares

At CES earlier this year, Toshiba unveiled a new Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet. When it was first unveiled, it ran Android 2.2 as no Android 3.0 OS was available for demonstration.

We know a lot of the specs on this device such as it having an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core CPU along with a 10.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. We also know that the battery is removable and that there’s a HDMI port and USB port.

What we find out today is that it now has a potential name of the Antares. This name hasn’t been officially unveiled yet, but when TabletGuide managed to get their hands on the new tablet, they looked at the “about phone” page which revealed the name, or possible name, as being the Antares.

The version running in the picture above is Android 2.2 like mentioned earlier, so the name could relate to the prototype device so to speak, but there’s also a good chance that Toshiba will use that as the name of the tablet.

Other than knowing that the tablet exists, we are yet to have any release dates or pricing although Toshiba shouldn’t delay in our opinion and launch within the next few months if they want to be competitive.
