A few months ago, Toshiba talked about an upcoming tablet, the Smart Pad, which has been MIA ever since — until now. Toshiba Australia’s Managing Director Mark Whittard showed off the device this week and gave journalists a couple details about it. By couple, I mean literally two — that there will be HDMI output and USB support. Notice that the two details he picked are conspicuously missing from the iPad. Hmm, what a coincidence. Will it run Windows 7 or Android? We’ll know before the Smart Pad is expected to arrive by October.
