Just a little over a week ago, Toshiba slammed us with a 6” inch demo retina screen running an eye popping resolution of 2560x1600. Although it showed impressive visuals, it also left many of us a little confused, as 6” is typically too small for a tablet -- unless you're RIM -- and too big for a smartphone -- unless you're Dell -- so what exactly had Toshiba been thinking?
