Toshiba AT200 tablet specs impress, thinner than Galaxy Tab 10.1 / iPad 2

By Updated on

When we posted our Toshiba Thrive review summary it has to be said that in terms of design it lacked the quality of some of it’s most popular rivals, however a press releases has gone public which talks about a new ultra-thin, ultra-light Toshiba tablet called the Toshiba AT200.

Before we start to drawl over the specs let’s get started with its physical design, the AT200 is said to weigh feature a 10.1-inch display and weigh 558 grams, not only is it light but it measures in at just 7.7mm – now that’s thin! To our knowledge this is the thinnest and lightest ever 10.1-inch tablet and quite frankly makes the 8.8mm thick iPad 2 almost sound chubby.

So what have Toshiba squeezed into such a narrow and featherweight form-factor? Well the 10.1-inch LCD outputs at a resolution of 1280 x 800 and the AT200 runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, we don’t know how much RAM there will be, however things sound promising as Engadget says it is powered by a dual-core TI OMAP 4430 (1.2GHz) processor.We are also led to believe that there will be 64GB of internal storage.

Other tech specs include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, also there is a micro-USB port, a microSD memory card slot, HDMI-out and front and back HD cameras (5 megapixel on the rear and 2 megapixel on the front) . Other technical specifications are currently being kept quiet, but we should hear more soon.

In the press release Toshiba were keen to mention full access to the Android Market, a rich web experience thanks to Adobe Flash and augmented reality functionality – we just wonder how much it will cost – it doesn’t sound cheap and there is not mention of a SIM-card slot for 3G / 4G connectivity. Apparently the AT200 is headed for a Q4 2011 release in Europe, we are sure that more juicy details will be uncovered soon.
