Leak: Antares is Toshiba’s Honeycomb Tablet, They Deny that Name

February 22, 2011 - Written By George Chandy

There was an article we had covered regarding Toshiba’s upcoming Honeycomb-based tablet. It features NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a 10.1 inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and has two cameras. The only thing that was not revealed was its name. The guys at TabletGuide.nl have got hold of a screenshot (shown below) of the device’s system information, which shows that the device name could be “Antares”.

Here is the thing, Toshiba have denied that the device will be called “Antares.” Obviously, I know that the name is the least important part of the tablet if you are planning to get one. Toshiba has used this codename for the device for a long time and we all know that most of the time these code-names end up being the official one. Well, this is actually a good name for a tablet, as it relates to one of the brightest stars in the night sky. What do you think of this?
