Digitimes reports plans from Toshiba to produce an Android-based touch-screen tablet computer, due out in September or October of 2010.

The report is light on details, but claims the Toshiba tablet will include a 10-inch screen and run on an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. Critical specs, such as price, battery life, and 3G compatibility, are all still unknown.

Putting aside convertible laptops and the dual-screen Libretto W100, news of the upcoming Android tablet is the best evidence we've seen of Toshiba's commitment to the tablet since 2009's 7-inch JournE tablet, shown above. The timing of the proposed tablet is also worth noting, since it has the potential to beat the rumored Google Chrome tablet to market with a one-two month lead.
