Toshiba tab undercuts iPad 2, offers more features

The forthcoming Toshiba tablet may be called the ANT, according to a report. Already listed on Amazon as coming soon, the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet is claimed by Toshiba to trump the iPad 2 because of a superior feature set. According to Laptoping, the tablet is said to be shipping in May starting from $450.

When it ships the device will come with an interchangeable, slip resistant back cover with 6 color options. It has a 10.1-inch display with a 1280x800 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The display also features Toshiba's 720p upscaling technology, Resolution Plus that will convert standard definition images into something comparable to 720p. It also includes a 2-megapixel front camera which is paired with a 5-megapixel rear camera.

Other notable highlights include a range of connectivity options including USB, mini-USB, HDMI, and an SD card slot. Its stereo sound is enhanced by SRS Labs surround sound enhancements. Unusual among the current generation of Android 3.0 tablets, it incorporates a user-replaceable battery as well as a physical screen-orientation lock.

Expected to ship in May, it will start from $450 for a model with 8GB of internal memory, which will be joined by a 16GB version for $500 and a 32GB model retailing for $580.
