Toshiba Android tablet 'coming soon' at Best buy

With PC makers getting into the Android Tablet game, it is a given that Toshiba would give us their spin on a high-quality Android tablet. While this isn't the first time we've seen it on the web, the coming soon page at Best Buy's site is encouraging. When we first saw it in January at CES 2011, it was running Froyo, but the hardware and the fact that Toshiba let us know they had no plans to customize the OS got us the most excited.

The specs are just what you would expect for a high-end Honeycomb tablet:

Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor

10.1 inch High-definition wide view backlit LED display

2 MP front camera, 5 MP rear

Wireless b/g/n

HDMI out

One full size USB port, one mini-USB port (yes, the specs say mini-USB)

Android 3.0

We know from our time with it at CES that the display is 1280x800 at 16:10, and Toshiba's "resolution plus" will allow video upscaling on the device.
