CES 2011: Motorola and Toshiba show Android tablets

Thumbnail image for IMG_0347.JPGLAS VEGAS — Motorola and Toshiba both said they will sell tablets this year that run Android, Google’s mobile operating system. Both companies are waiting for the next version of Android, Honeycomb, to install on the devices.

At the Consumer Electronics Show, Motorola showed the Xoom, a 3G tablet it plans to sell through Verizon in the first quarter of this year. It will not run on Wi-Fi, and the company did not give pricing. Here is a video with Arthur Baudo, product operations manager for Motorola. What’s on screen does not reflect how the tablet will work — it’s a video playback of a Honeycomb demo.

Toshiba’s tablet is set to ship in the spring, and it runs on Wi-Fi. It has a 10-inch display and the back has a rubberized grip finish, a break from the slick iPad hardware. The device is 0.6-inch thick and has a slot for a full-sized SD card, a USB plug and stereo speakers.

Chris Casper, group manager for product marketing in Toshiba’s Digital Products group, said, “We can borrow a lot from the TV side of the business” to improve the video and audio experience on a tablet.
