Toshiba has shown a Windows 7 Tablet at the CES. It looks like Toshiba has realized that a Windows 7 Tablet just does not make any sense. Digitimes reports that sources in the industry say that Toshiba removed the Windows 7 tablet from their roadmap.
Toshiba is coming out with a 10.1-inch Android Honeycomb tablet soon. It is already listed on Amazon. It makes sense for Toshiba to bet on Android until Microsoft is coming with Windows 8 for Tablets.
In the same report from Digitimes Toshiba is said to also cancel its Chromebook plans. Now that is I think a mistake. Apparently Toshiba got cold feet because of the failure of their actually very cool Android netbook. It maybe was ahead of its time, but it also was not marketed well. I actually saw it never featured in the United States.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
