Although this new Android tablet has been previewed before CES 2011, we won’t be able to buy it until Google releases Android 2.4 Honeycomb. As Google is rumored to be releasing the Honeycomb in late February or early March, the pricing of Toshiba’s new Tegra 2 android tablet will not be known before mid 2011.
