We’ll be the first to admit that we don’t understand Toshiba’s tablet intentions. There are plenty of tantalizing prototypes and an abundance of confusingly branded models, but there’s no overarching reason to pay much attention. The LT170 is a case in point: it’s nominally a budget Android device, with a Freescale 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, but by now the €299 ($400) asking price could pick up something far, far nicer, like the heavily discounted 16GB HTC Flyer or 32GB BlackBerry PlayBook. Anyway, there it is. Bewilderment.
