The war of the tablets is just about to take off as Toshiba has set up its very own Google Powered Android Tablet site. On the site the people at Toshiba fire a shot across the Apple iPad’s bow, and tout how poorly the iPad hardware is compared with what they are prepared to offer. In fact Toshiba also takes the gloves off and says that if you wish to enjoy all of the Web, you need Flash, something Apple has chosen to not to include with its popular iPad models.

But it is the hardware that Toshiba is touting as making its tablet an iPad slayer. The hardware will include rear-facing and front-facing cameras, a replaceable battery, USB, and an HDMI port. You will also get a 10.1″ screen, 1280 x 800-resolution, but with one thing missing. The Toshiba tablet doesn’t have a name.

If you try to access the Web site using an Apple device using ISO you will get this window:

There is just one small, tiny, minuscule issues as well. The new Toshiba Tablet will not be available until this coming spring. By the time it does arrive, I believe the marketplace will be saturated with similar devices. Also, Apple will have its new iPad 2 available, which will set a new standard in tablet computing.
