UPDATE: After publishing this story we were contacted by Toshiba letting us know that the rumour from is just that a rumour.  They have told us that this is not the final name of the tablet. I can’t help but wonder why that name showed up in the tablet? Guess we’ll have to wait until Toshiba decides to brand their tablet.

Toshiba has been showing off a no name tablet since CES, the tablet has a 10.1″ form factor but packs in more pixels with a 1280 x 800 display. It has Android 3.0 or Honeycomb, 2MP front and 5MP rear cameras, full sized USB and HDMI ports, mini USSB and SD card slots. Weighs 1.7 pounds and comes in a 0.6-inches thick (for comparison, iPad is 1.5-1.6 pounds, 0.5-inches thick). Comes with different colored lids for the back.

So the new news on this tablet is that the fellas over at have uncovered the name of this tablet at MWC 2011. The Toshiba Antares name appeared in About section of the tablet while it was on display at the show. We aren’t sure if this is the final name or it might just be the code name for the tablet. If your wondering where they got the name “Antares” is one of the brightest stars in the sky. Which is appropriate for the tablet that is looking to take on the iPad.
