New tablet rumors for CES 2011
This time of year geeks around the world have their thoughts on two things. The first is Christmas and the second is CES that kicks off in January, which is like two geeky Christmases in a row. About this time, each year we start hearing rumors about new gadgets that folks think will be showing up at the largest tech show in the country.
One of those rumors has surfaced and has Toshiba unveiling three tablets at the show. This would make a lot of sense, you can guarantee that there will be tons of tablets braking cover for the first time there. The tablets will be out in force and many of them will probably be Android offerings to boot.
According to this rumor, the tablets Toshiba has up its sleeves will each ruin a different OS. One tablet with Windows, one with Google Chrome, and one with Android are expected. The rumor also suggest that the will be a pair of 10.1-inch tablets and one will be 11.6-inches, but we don’t know what tablet will have which screen size. My money says the Windows machine is going to be the larger screen size. That 11.6-inch rig is supposed to have a framed screen. I am thinking the hardware needed to run Windows will need more space and thereby get a larger screen.
We don't know what version of Android the tablet will run either. I would bet it would be the most tablet friendly version of the OS available at the time of launch for sure. Last year 3D was huge at the show and this year with the crushing success of the iPad, tablets will be there in droves. Expect to see hoards of new offerings flooding out of the how when the doors open.
