While looking for some drivers on their website, I noticed that Toshiba are listing a new 10" Tegra-2 based Honeycomb tablet with native HDMI output, a fullsize USB connector with slave support, and a removable battery.

All this, for $800.

The obvious catch, is no SIM slot, so it's a WiFi only unit, but the price seems pretty reasonable taking that into account.

I'm rather tempted given that my Galaxy Tab has been completely abandoned by Samsung.

Played with the Toshiba AT100 on my Toshiba procare course last week, VERY very nice unit! The trainer said the 3G model's will be out in a month or 2, and the 32gb model is right around the corner.

I don't get it why other manufacturer have to stick with mini HDMI and USB? I mean 10" is certainly big enough to handle standard port, which is very handy indeed (and save money on cable too!)

ntsan: I don't get it why other manufacturer have to stick with mini HDMI and USB? I mean 10" is certainly big enough to handle standard port, which is very handy indeed (and save money on cable too!)


Mini USB is perfectly fine, there's plenty of adaptors available cheaply.

Full-size HDMI is actually quite a large connector which usually has a fairly substantial cable attached to it so I can understand why they do it, just the bracing required for the connector to stop it tearing off the board would have to be stronger than usual.

Now Apple and their PITA display connectors are another story, the one on my old macbook is a constant source of annoyance just so they could sell an extra $30 adaptor for the sake of aesthetics.

Also seen them in stock at Harvey Normans. But they didn't have a display model  where I was.
