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.
