    Super skinny Toshiba tablet touted for IFA release

    By 29 August 2011

    By 13 June 2011

    Toshiba has long offered “combi” TVs, and in the 22DL833, Tosh manage to include a slot-loading DVD drive without bulking the set up too much. Sure, it won’t compete with the slick design of the latest high-end notebook, but the drive on the rear...
