Images apparently showing Toshiba's upcoming SmartPad tablet have leaked ahead of the slate's official debut.  The shots, caught by NotebookItalia, show a similar design to that barely glimpsed back in July, and will likely earn the SmartPad (as the slate is tipped to be called) much comparison to the iPad.  According to earlier leaks, the Toshiba tablet will run Android on an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, with a 10-inch touchscreen display.
