Toshiba to bring three different tablets to CES?

Toshiba is said to bring three new tablets to CES in January, with a release date to follow in the first quarter of the year, industry insiders reported today. While the PC maker itself didn't confirm this report, unnamed sources for Digitimes said the production of the computers will be outsourced to Quanta, Compal and Pegatron, all three of which are also based in Taiwan. Each will have a different OS, with the 11.6-inch model most likely to sport Windows 7 while the two 10.1-inch models will probably use Google's Android and Chrome OS.

It's unknown which manufacturer is tied to which tablet at this time.

At the same time, Toshiba plans seven-inch tablets, though their design and creation will be handled in-house by the PC maker's cellphone division. This does hint at functions and features very similar to smartphones themselves. Toshiba is no stranger to tablets, at least with Android, as it released the 10-inch Folio 100 back in September (pictured).
