LG and Toshiba confirm tablet announcements for CES

It’s going to be hot on the tablet front at this year’s CES as another two major players confirmed they will be officially introducing Android slates at the show. Toshiba has just showcased the 10-inch Tegra 2-powered follow up to the Folio 100, while LG might be bringing not one but two Honeycomb devices.

The Koreans went on record, confirming their 8.9” tablet, which should run Android 3.0, but rumor has it that they might also give us a glimpse of another unit with a larger 10-inch screen.

On the other hand the Toshiba Folio 100, which was recalled shortly after its release, was quite a fiasco, but now Toshiba claims that all will be fine with the new device. And with the dual-core Tegra 2 CPU ticking under its hood it would be a shame if that’s not true. Not to mention the HDMI and standard USB ports and the 1280 x 800 pixels widescreen display, which will be valuable weapons in the tablets’ crusade against netbooks.

Have in mind though that neither of the new tablets will actually start selling before Google officially announces Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
