We first heard of Toshiba’s tablet plans last week with more details expected to show up IFA next month (at this point we could rename the event in Berlin TabletCon), and while we heard whisperings of some specs very little was given to go off of. Now we have our first look at the tablet, and we must say it isn’t half bad. Sure it contains the requisite iPad visual cues, but on appearance alone we are getting a very sleek slate design.

With an NVIDIA Tegra 2 and 10-inch capacitive touchscreen the device promises an experience that should make it one of the break-out Android tablets of the fall. Connectivity seems to be plentiful with HDMI, USB, mini-USB, memory card, and docking ports. No word on which Android version, but given the commitment to a seemingly solid piece of hardware we expect no less than Android 2.1 on the slate when it ships in October. More info is sure to be coming out of IFA.
