We generally think of Tablets as mobile devices. The 12-inch Microsoft Surface Pro 3, the 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note Pro or the 13.3-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro also seem quite big that way. However, Toshiba has recently launched a gigantic 24-inch tablet, the Shared Board TT301 meant for business users.
The new Toshiba TT301 tablet features a Full HD 24-inch diagonal LCD display that can also double as a monitor or a TV. It has a 1920 x 1080p resolution screen, 10 points multitouch support and a clean stylish design to match various scenarios such as hotels, offices, education places etc.
Other specs include a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The tablet also has an infrared remote control that will make it easy to use for presentations in meetings or in classrooms. There is also HDMI and Miracast support so that users can hook it up to their Windows 8 laptop, desktop or even a TV. The device weighs 1.8kg and features two 2W integrated speakers, hence no external audio is needed. The Toshiba TT301 supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Toshiba TT301 has a “double window function” where two apps can be displayed simultaneously on one screen. The app must be compatible with double window split screen. For instance, an image can be displayed on one half of the screen while a website can be opened in another as the following image shows:

The TT301 tablet will hit the Japanese markets first but Toshiba has not revealed its pricing yet or whether it will be sold in international markets later. What do you think of Toshiba’s new tablet? Do you think the specs are ok for such a huge tablet?
