After its first iPad rival - the Folio - flopped, Toshiba is to try again with a new (as yet unnamed) tablet portable.

The new device - due in Spring - will feature a 10.1in, 1280x800 resolution screen, dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, rear- and forward-facing cameras and both USB and HDMI connectivity.

The high-power processor will allow the tablet to use Toshiba's Resolution+ upscaling technology, which aims to make the most of lower-resolution content on higher-resolution screens. Will be interesting to see how that copes with the likes of BBC iPlayer and YouTube.
