Toshiba may be preparing to launch a new Android tablet with a faster processor. The company’s current tablets have 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core chips, but Android benchmarking website AnTuTu is showing scores from a new tablet with a 1.4 GHz CPU.

While not specifically labeled as a Toshiba device, the new tablet has a code name similar to those used for other Toshiba tablets.

The “Tostab06” tablet has a 1.4 GHz processor. That could mean it will have an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core chip, which has been known to run at that speed. But it could also be an indication that the new tablet will have a new processor from Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, or another hcip maker.

We’ll probably find out more at CES in January.

One reply on “New, faster Toshiba Android tablet in the works?”

  1. Well, I for one hope that they decided to withdraw the AT200 and release this instead. Toshiba are know in many tech circles for having large “reserves” of future tech within them (more than even Sony and Samsung, some say), but their Android tablet offerings have been any but cutting-edge. They showed of the AT200 a few months ago saying it was the thinnest 10″ around and all that, but it’s still not out yet, and even if released today will probably be dead-on-arrival (unless priced like a Kindle Fire) thanks to the competition debuting quad-core tabs with ICS and higher res displays.

    The management needs to take a look at itself and it’s past, and go back to the drawing board to come up with something that’ll put them on the Android tablet map. Weren’t they showcasing a new “retina-busting” AMOLED screen resolution a couple of months ago? I also recall them talking about new battery-tech promising longer life and all that (in conjunction with Panasonic, iirc). Perhaps it’s time to bring all these technologies together. If you insist on premium pricing, you need to give us premium tech, Toshiba-san.
