You can find just about anything on Amazon.com, including Toshiba's Android 3.0 tablet that you can't yet buy — but you can purr and pour over the pictures of it.
The 10.1 inch tablet could be another strong competitor to Apple's iPad, much like Motorola's Xoom. The Toshiba tablet is similar to the Xoom in that it runs Honeycomb, or Android 3.0, Google's version of the Android operating system designed specifically for tablets.
There's no price or release date mentioned on Amazon.com, although indications are it will released by summer. The AndroidCommunity website says the tablet will use an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, something that will make mobile gamers quite happy. The website says the tablet will include:
... a 2-megapixel front camera, 5-megapixel rear camera, and runs at 1280 x 800 resolution like the Motorola XOOM.
There’s also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, a full-sized USB 2.0 port and a miniUSB port, a full-sized SD card slot and an HDMI port. The rubberized back panel is user-interchangeable, as is the battery, though there’s no word on how long it should last.
Toshiba is also readying a docking station for the unnamed slate, with “additional connectivity ports,” and there’s obviously Android Market access.
And if you're interested, the Amazon page does let you "sign up to be notified when this item becomes available."
