Toshiba’s been talking up its Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet since January, but has kept quiet on details until now.

In Japan, at least, the tablet is dubbed the Toshiba Regza AT300, and carries a price tag of 60,000 yen (roughly $723).

A product page on Toshiba’s Dynabook.com website confirms specs posted earlier on Amazon: 10.1-inch display, Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a full-sized SD card reader and ports for USB, mini-USB and HDMI.

I played with the Toshiba tablet briefly at CES 2011, but the prototype was only running Android 2.2. I didn’t love the hardware — it felt a bit chunky even compared to the original iPad — but the plethora of inputs could make it more productive than your average tablet.

The Regza AT300 will launch in Japan in late June. For now, though, there’s no word on when Toshiba’s tablet will arrive stateside, or whether its Japanese name and price will stick.
