Toshiba Android 3.0-tablet not due to late summer

The upcoming Toshiba Android 3.0 tablet introduced at CES and promised to ship in June has been delayed. Toshiba UK's business notebooks chief, Ken Chan, told RegHardware the 10-inch tablet will now arrive during the summer. Chan wouldn't give reasons why the tablet was delayed even when pressed, however.

"It'll be here at the very end of summer," Chan said.

The delay may be due to the recent parts supply shortages that have affected tablets that include the iPad 2, Motorola Xoom and Eee Pad Transformer, among others. A less likely reason is that Toshiba will put the next generation NVIDIA Tegra processor into the tablet and is awaiting its release.

The unnamed Toshiba tablet has hardware very similar to other Android 3.0 tablets, including a 1280x800 capacitive, a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and a rear five-megapixel and front 0.2-megapixel camera. There will also be Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB and an SD memory card slot onboard.
