Ultra thin tablet from Toshiba

The new tablet appears to have an all metal body, which seems to be a response to the criticism Toshiba faced for Thrive being heavier and bulkier than the competition.

Toshiba’s new tablet is likely to be a lot thinner than its current offering, Thrive, said a tech website.

The new tablet appears to have an all-metal body, which seems to be a response to the criticism faced by Toshiba’s Thrive for being heavier and bulkier than the competition. Thrive, of course, had something which the competition didn’t have &#151 full sized USB ports. These ports allowed Thrive’s users to connect external accessories such as keyboards and gaming pads directly to the tablet.

The thinner tablet from Toshiba will not have full sized USB ports and will instead have micro HDMI, micro USB, and micro SD card slots. The new tablet from Toshiba is expected to be unveiled at the IFA Berlin, a consumer electronics trade fair.

The specifications of the tablet are not known, though it is expected to run on Android Honeycomb.

The first tablet launched by Toshiba was Folio, which did not survive in the market for long; whereas the second tablet Thrive did marginally better.
