Toshiba AT200 Android tablet launches

The first Toshiba Android tablet has been threatening to make an apearance since its debut at CES, but has probably been overshadowed now by a much skinnier sibling, the Toshiba AT200.

In truth, that slimline profile is the standout feature here and worth mentioning again, not least because it makes the iPad 2 look a little weighty. Ok, maybe that's putting it a bit strong, but at just 7.7mm thick, it does shave 1mm off the thickness of the iPad 2 and offers a bit more screen space at 10.1 inches too.

Aside from that, this is pretty much an Android tablet by numbers for 2011. Specifically, that means Android Honeycomb (3.2) for the operating system, a 1280x800 resolution screen, a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, 1GB of RAM and storage up to 32GB (but you can expand via a microSD card). There's also a five-megapixel rear-facing camera, a front-facing two-megapixel camera for video networking and a micro-HDMI port for outputting media content to a big-screen TV.

It's a contender, that's for sure. Although like all tablets, it will probably down to the marketing and price as much as the specification. We don't know that price or indeed a proposed shelf date. When we get news on either, we'll certainly pass it on.
