CES 2011

CES 2011 is only a few weeks away now, and reports are already emerging that Toshiba is planning to debut three tablet computers with three different operating systems.

According to DigiTimes (which is also reporting about a big potential iPad development), there will be one tablet for each Microsoft Windows 7, Google Chrome OS and Android. (No word if that will be Gingerbread or even Honeycomb just yet.)

Furthermore, two of the tablet display sizes will be 10.1-inches wide, and one will be framed at 11.6-inches. However, sizes haven't been assigned to the respective operating systems just yet. There are reportedly plans for new 7-inch slate PCs, but DigiTimes hasn't provided any further details on that front.

Tablets are sure to be a huge focus at CES 2011, so this could very well turn out to be true. Are you excited to see more tablet computers with these operating systems? Or do you think the tablet market is still lacking something?

  • Toshiba makes great products

    I'm currently really interested in the HP Slate but one of my first laptops was a Toshiba that lasted forever so I'd be interested to see what they can come up with in the useful* tablet market.

    * Useful = Windows 7

      Same.
      Sent a Toshiba with son-in-law to Iraq - it held up well.
      Be nice to see what they come up with...

    I bet my entire net worth that they have. Nobody in their right mind designs HW without a specific OS in mind, and in particular in cases where the OSs are very different, including their HW requirements.

    Now, Toshiba may choose not to disclose that information, but that is an entirely different situation.

      Interesting - I read it the other way - They know and are not sharing...

    yawn-oops I think the iPad will still own the marketplace and all the rest are wannabes

    btw- its brilliant on Apple's part to be the first mover in a space that didn't exist and then to combine it with the most powerful app store in existence and to be for some time- WOW!!! just imagine, everyone gets comfortable with iOS whatever number they come up with- just like we all SUFFERED through every windows- dos, 3.1, 95, 98, etc. they all sucked and we all lived with "how do I outsmart Microsoft, vs. wow, I don't have to think with Apple"- this from someone with 5 PC's and 3 Apple products, 20 years of all this nonsense-

    aobtw- I just wired my house so that every room has built in speech recognition- oh me oh my- when will they all realize that's all we really want- talk and let the box do its thing
