As tipped by SmartHouse, several weeks ago Toshiba is set to release several new new Slate PC’s  to compete with the Apple iPad with additional details emerging overnight.

Jeff Barney, general manager of digital products for the US division of Toshiba has confirmed that Toshiba  will offer several devices, referred to as “slates,” with operating systems spanning from Windows 7 to Android.

The Android offering would be the closest device to the iPad, integrating a 10-inch screen and featuring a lower price point. The more expensive Windows-based model is expected to include higher-end features such as dual displays.

“We definitely see a place for the slate, we see there’s a market there,” said Barney. “It’ll be expansive like netbooks, it won’t be cannibalistic.”

The company already offers similar products, including the Journe Touch, in European markets. The device is focused on mobile Internet activities, running a version of Windows CE that does not support third-party apps. The US Android offering will take advantage of the range of content available through the respective Market.

Earlier reports indicate Toshiba’s upcoming slates could arrive sometime late this year or early in 2011.
