Toshiba’s Tegra 2 Android second-attempt tablet gets detailed

It's obviously the morning for Android tablet listings; we've seen the Dell Streak 7 WiFi pop up on Amazon, and now Toshiba's 10.1-inch Android tablet has been spotted staking out its online retail space. The Tegra 2 powered slate - which we grabbed some fleeting hands-on time with back at CES - also gets a long list of specifications, including HDMI, a full-sized USB 2.0 port and twin cameras.

Up front there's a 2-megapixel webcam for video calls, while on the back is a 5-megapixel camera for photos and video. Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth - no sign of 3G in the Amazon listing - as well as a mini USB, full-sized SD card reader and a 3.5mm headphone socket. GPS, an accelerometer and digital compass are all included.

The rubberized back covers are user-interchangeable, as is the battery, and Toshiba is readying a docking station with extra ports. No word on pricing or availability, but previous leaks suggested it might arrive in June.
