Consumers have the choice
Enhanced browsing and video experience in 16:10 format
Toshiba again has put a special focus on the development of enhanced video, audio and internet experience on its latest tablet PC. The Toshiba tablet, powered by a dual-core NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 processor, features a wide view 10.1-inch (25.7cm) diagonal multi-touch display in a 16:10 format with 1,280x800 pixels, providing ample room for viewing websites in landscape or portrait mode and allowing a cinematic experience for video viewing and gaming.
Video and audio enhancement technologies
The tablet’s Adaptive Display technology constantly adjusts parameters such as brightness and contrast according to the ambient lightening conditions, and therefore always offers the best possible image display without need to change any parameters manually. In addition, Toshiba’s Resolution+™ technology is integrated as standard. It enhances the quality of standard definition videos in order to exploit the full potential of the tablet’s high definition display, independent of the quality of the source material. Unparalleled sound quality is achieved thanks to Toshiba audio enhancements that optimise sound output to the surrounding conditions. This enables the tablet’s stereo speakers to bring the sound of music tracks, videos and games to life like never before.
Well-equipped and ready to connect
Toshiba’s new tablet will support Mobile Broadband (3G). A built-in gyroscope, an accelerometer sensor, integrated GPS, and a two megapixel front-facing camera and five megapixel rear-facing camera comprise the features of the tablet. The Toshiba tablet has multiple connectivity options and ports that make it easy to integrate the device into everyday digital life. The tablet features a full-size HDMI port to easily share photos and video on a TV, as well as a full-size USB 2.0 port for connecting external hard drives and cameras, and a mini USB port for tablet as USB mass storage. A SD Card slot provides options for additional storage and transferring files. The tablet will also be equipped with 802.11n WLAN. The tablet will offer access to the Google AndroidTM Market.
