Check out our hands-on preview of the Toshiba AT200 here
IFA, Berlin: Toshiba has finally unveiled its latest tablet, the achingly-thin AT200.
The follow up to the rather chunky (linkouthttp://www.trustedreviews.com/news/toshiba-hoping-its-tablet-will-thrive Toshiba Thrive)
(or AT100 as it will be known here in the UK), is the AT200 which will almost disappear from view if you turn it on its side, being just
7.7mm thick. The 10.1in Android tablet will be arriving in Europe
in Q4 of this year.
The tablet will run Android 3.2 and will be powered by a Texas Instruments
OMAP 4430 processor running at 1.2GHz and will come with up to 64GB of in-built storage.
There is a five megapixel camera on the rear and a two
megapixel version on the front, to allow for video calling. Toshiba is promising up to 8 hours of battery life from the AT200.
The AT200, or the Excite as we reckon it could be called by
the time it comes to market, weighs in at just 558g and will come with an HDMI-out
port, microUSB port, microSD card slot, WiFi and Bluetooth.
We are still trying to find out exactly what type of display
technology is present on the AT200, as Toshiba worryingly didn’t mention that or
the screen resolution in the press release.
Fret not however, as our man Ed Chester is currently seeking
out everything there is to know about the AT200 at the press conference in Berlin and will be
bringing you a hands-on preview as soon as possible.
The AT200 is certainly a contender as one of the main iPad
rivals, along with the Sony Tablet S, but does it do enough to tempt you to throw away your Apple tablet
and embrace Android?
