Toshiba’s upcoming SmartPad tablet, like many others, is basing its marketing strategy on what it does do that Apple’s iPad doesn’t. In this case, that’s offering a bevy of ports to view your digital media, and images of the device have been scooped by NotebookItalia that show those ports for the first time.


The seven-inch tablet has USB,HDMI, and SD card ports. Beyond that, we don’t know what sort of interface this thing will be running (or if it’s just Windows 7), but it should be out in the fall.
