Toshiba's own 10-inch 'pad' tablet device project seems to have taken shape, after official pictures were released to the press. The device is referred to as the "SmartPad", is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, which is a high-performance SoC designed for graphics-intensive portable devices. The SmartPad runs Google's Android operating system that's optimized for its relatively large screen taking advantage of advanced touch features. The tablet is build of an aluminum frame, with crystal top.

The pictures reveal it to have six essential buttons that are feather-touch, and separate from the touchscreen, also shown is a front-facing camera. Another picture reveals some of its connectors, which include a memory card slot, a mini-USB (input), a USB port, an HDMI connector, audio and DC-in. The device is said to pack its own stereo speakers. As far as functionality goes, the device looks to be taking an aim at the Apple iPad with a few more software features, with its hardware, it is not a tablet "PC", as it cannot run Windows 7. It is also learned that older rumors suggesting that there could be a Windows 7 variant are not true. The IFA event in Berlin could be Toshiba's launch-vehicle of choice.

Ironic that Lunix was said to be the death of MS, but instead Apple started it.

Is that a displayport mixed in woth the I/O sockets?

"It might run Android" is what a lot of sites are saying -- but with those buttons on the side, it's a pretty sure thing. Thankfully with a Tegra, this thing will actually be useful!

Might be HDMI, from the look.

So does this Tegra processor handle HD movies better than any of the Atom series?
