There are a lot of dollars at stake in the emerging tablet war, and one misstep could relegate a company’s entry into the ‘also ran’ pile. One of the big decisions tablet makers have to make is which OS to build their slate around.
Toshiba isn’t taking any chances, and rather than roll the dice on Microsoft’s Windows 7 or Google’s Android or Chrome OSes, the company will instead play all three DIGITimes Reports.
All three tablets will make their debut at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, two of which will boast a 10.1-inch panel. DigiTimes didn’t say which one that would be, but did say that the third tablet will sport a slightly larger 11.6-inch panel.
What about the 7-inch form factor, such as the one chosen by Samsung with its Galaxy Tab? Toshiba is planning to attack that segment as well, but is relegating responsibility over to its handset division.
