We reported earlier that, assuming CES was an indication, Toshiba doesn’t want anything to do with netbooks right now. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t still in that world, and that’s where these awesome-looking prototypes come in. They’re shiny and stylish, which is a big plus, and seem like they could be used as interesting alternatives (or companions?) to iPhone- or Netbook-style devices. Check them out:
The first is the Toshiba Internet Viewer display, a 10-inch screen that can be detached from an accompanying keyboard for whatever reason you’d like.
These are some iPhone-style prototypes, ranging in their similarity to the Apple device. The one in the middle looks like it has two screens, which must surely mean it has some kind of touchscreen capability, and resembles a Nintendo DS.
Though a new Toshiba netbook would have been nice, we’re pleasantly surprised to see these devices lining the Toshiba CES booth windows. They’re only prototypes for now, but as soon as we get word of an application for them we’ll let you know.
