Toshiba preparing ultraslim iPad killer to debut at IFA 2011

Toshiba planning iPad killer to debut at IFA 2011While Toshiba already released two tablets in the past few years, the Toshiba Folio 100 and more recently the Toshiba Thrive, neither have gained enough traction to topple the iPad.

We just received word thanks to Notebook Italia that Toshiba will be unveiling a new Honeycomb tablet at IFA 2011, Sept. 2 through Sept. 7, that will not only be slimmer and more powerful than Toshiba’s current line of Android slates, but will also have an outstanding design as well, stealing a bit of that Apple beauty.

The only details we have so far for this slate are that it will supposedly be incredibly thin, only using micro interfaces, but will include a micro USB, micro HDMI and microSD slot. You can see from the photo comparing the new tablet to the Thrive just how thin it will be. The back cover will also sport a brushed-metal finish.

Expect more details when Toshiba hopefully makes an official announcement in Berlin in just a few days.

    “iPod/iPad/iPhone killer”. I wonder how many times that sentence has been used?

    • shonangreg

      I want a great android tablet. I don’t want the iPad to be killed, and I can’t foresee any tablet doing so. Apple will maintain a substantial clientele who are willing to pay for the design and quality. Apple doing well compels android device makers to improve their products. Satisfactory alternatives force Apple to give their fans, er, users, more freedom, “But Mommy. Sergei gets the google voice app. Why can’t we?” “I will never…! Ugh! Damn you Brin. OK, Mac, you can have google voice too…” Repeat as android thrives . . .

      So, to a point here, iPad killer analogies are insulting to MacFans and irrelevant to android afficianados.

    and how many has actually succeeded? 

    While there are many apps for Android there are nearly no apps written for an Android Tab, so they will have to write some Tab specific apps or the iPad will forever rule the world.

    Apple has created a market for iPad and  no matter how great a competing product might become, it will still be a second rate trying hard copycat !
