LAS VEGAS - Continuing our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES, we bring you tablets #3 and #4, which are essentially the same devices, but one runs Android OS and the other runs Windows 7. The devices don’t yet have a name, Toshiba hasn’t announced pricing, and the release date for them is an unspecified time later this year.
The devices being shown had 11.6” screens with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1266 x 768. They include a video out port that is DLNA-compliant (it will connect to other DLNA-enabled TVs and/or devices). They run on an Intel Atom processor and include WiFi. They might include 3G, but no one in the booth was able to answer that question for us.

The unnamed devices also include two cameras. A lower resolution camera in the front is intended for use with video chat apps, while the one on the back is a 3 megapixel camera. Jeff Gamet noted that they were also thicker than Apple’s iPad.
As you can see from the photos, both devices were on display inside a case (like Apple’s original iPhone display at Macworld), and we were not able to handle them. The company didn’t seem too concerned about answering questions in the booth, either.
