More iPad challengers coming, from Toshiba

There will be plenty of options for holiday shoppers looking for tablet computing devices from major computer companies.

In addition to the iPad and Hewlett-Packard’s Slate, Toshiba will be selling similar devices based on Windows 7 and another line based on Google’s Android software, according to a Reuters story quoting Jeff Barney, general manager of digital products for Toshiba America.

Toshiba is looking at a variety of form factors for its slate PCs, including a dual-screen model running Windows, and one with a roughly 10-inch screen, he said.

“We definitely see a place for the slate, we see there’s a market there. It’ll be expansive like netbooks, it won’t be cannibalistic,” he said.

Toshiba could really shake it up if they include the Intel WiDi technology that’s on some of its laptops, enabling them to beam high-def video onto a nearby TV.
