Toshiba has announced the launch of the AT200, a 10.1in tablet running Android 3.2 “Honeycomb” with a 1,280×800 resolution IPS display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Texas Instruments CPU and a svelte 7.7mm profile, making it the thinnest tablet currently available. Weighing in at 535g, it’s also one of the lightest 10in tablets, beating even the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1’s 565g. We first saw it at the IFA trade show in September last year
It’s available in two models, one with 16GB of storage for £399 and a 32GB model for £449. This puts the 16GB model in direct competition with the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which still costs £399 six months after its launch and has recently been updated to Android 3.2. The AT200 isn’t just skinnier, however: it includes Mini HDMI and Micro USB ports – although it’s not clear if it will charge via the USB port or require a separate AC adaptor.
