Toshiba Announce 24-Inch Android “Shared Board”

Toshiba announced a pretty large tablet on December 4, when they broke the news of their 24-inch Android tablet “Shared Board”.

It's still smaller than Lenovo's 27-inch IdeaCentre Horizon, but at 24 inches, it's large nonetheless.

So is it a tablet or an AIO (All-In-One) desktop computer? It doesn't really have the capacity to be an AIO, and the specs and the 10-point touchscreen points towards a tablet.

This is essentially a tablet that is intended for use in businesses and organizations, as a quick and easy way to give people access to information in hotels, schools, shops, showrooms, and other areas where visitors could tap and click their way to information on a tablet that is most likely hung on a wall, though it can be laid flat too.

The specs in Toshiba Shared Board (TT301) are Android 4.2.1 at this point, with a 24-inch LCD panel with 10-point multitouch and 1920 x 1080 resolution. It only has some kind of 1 GHz dual-core processor, so it should be cheap rather than powerful. It then has 1.5GB of RAM just like a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, as well as 16GB of storage, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an IR remote control.

But it's 3.9 kg heavy, almost the same as nine iPad Air 2's together.

As well as functioning as an Android tablet, it may be used as a Widows touch panel monitor too, so it does have its uses this device, and it supports Miracast too.

No price is quoted by Toshiba, as this may be negotiable for businesses.
