Everybody, please welcome Toshiba to the tablet party. The company is currently developing a few different slate designs and will offer some with Windows 7 and some with Android.

Toshiba America’s Jeff Barney said the devices will launch this year, although a firm timeframe hasn’t been established yet. Aside from a standard 10-inch tablet form factor, Toshiba will also apparently release “a dual-screen model running Windows,” according to Reuters.

That’s an interesting piece of information, since a dual-screen tablet running Windows sounds pretty similar to Microsoft’s secretive “Courier” project that’s supposedly due to hit the market later this year. The main difference, though, is that Courier will reportedly be running a version of Microsoft’s mobile software—not a full-blown Windows OS.
