LAS VEGAS--Get ready for jumbo tablets. Toshiba plans to bring a 13.3-inch tablet to the U.S. market later this year.

The oversize device--by tablet standards--will likely first emerge in Japan, where it can double, because of its screen size, as a portable TV in the home, a Toshiba representative on the CES show floor told CNET.

The target market for the U.S. would be customers looking for a larger tablet, according to the representative. Though he wasn't more specific, there was a demo screen (see photo below) showing a home automation control interface.

Toshiba is not revealing timing or pricing at this time.
