Toshiba shows off 13.3-inch Android 4.0 tablet with TV tuner

Toshiba is showing off a new tablet in Germany that has a 13.3-inch display and runs Android 4.0. The tablet, dubbed AT330, is on display at Toshiba World 2012 in Bonn, and Techfokus managed to get a close look and gather a few details. In addition to its massive size, which is nearly double that of the AT270, the AT330 also features a Tegra 3 quad-core CPU and a TV tuner — complete with an antennae that can be pulled out of the body.

A TV tuner? Really?! What is this, 1998?

I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that these manufacturers will try anything to get their foothold established in the tablet market. But, I certainly would not have expected a freaking TV tuner to be one of those “specs” that they pulled out of the trash heap from a decade (or more) ago.

What sells me on it though is the extendable antenna. Yeah, that’s…modern. I believe my parents just called from the late 80’s. They said they want their portable television back.

Just weird.
