While the iPad continues to dominate the tablet market, it doesn’t stop various companies bringing out worthy looking alternatives. Some have fallen by the wayside or seen prices discounted to shift inventory. Today we can tell you the Toshiba Regza AT700 the world’s thinnest tablet has been revealed in Japan.
The 2011 CEATEC event began in Japan with Toshiba announcing their new AT700 tablet, and according to TechRadar it looked similar to its other device the AT200. The AT700 could be a tablet that is focusing on the Japanese market, but could also find its way around the world as well.
It has a very slim form factor at only 7.7 thick and weighing only 558g from its 10.1-inch display. There are a number of connectivity ports available, and the device will come running Android 3.2. It also has Resolution+, five megapixel camera, and an audio enhancer and noise equalizer.
Toshiba said “We are transcending the boundaries between PC and TV”, but will only happen if you purchase other Toshiba devices such as a TV. For instance you can stream video content from a Toshiba Blu-ray tablet to the tablet, or access PC data from the AT700.
The company is keeping sales figures for the device at a realistic level though, and said they expect to shift over one million units globally. It also feels it share of the tablet market should go up to ten percent along with similar figures for its TV range.
It is expected to release in Japan during December, but pricing and availability around the rest of the world isn’t currently known. Do you think the Toshiba AT700 will do well?
