Toshiba released a new Android Tablet REGZA AT200A claiming that it is the world’s lightest and thinnest 10.1-inch tablet available in the market. It is having weight-535g and from front-to-rear measures 7.7mm, and offers display of highly unbelievable wide view.
It feels pretty attractive, especially with its magnesium chassis ie., a brushed metallic back made of magnesium alloy that looks very attractive compared with the plastic feel of rivals such as Samsung's Galaxy tablets. The AT200's glossy screen is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. Although it's likely to launch with Android 3.2, Toshiba promises an over-the-air (OTA) update to the latest version, Android 4.0, though no date has been given.
Comes with a 1,280 x 800-pixel screen on the AT200 may quickly feel dated. The dual-core processor onboard runs at a brisk 1.2GHz, but it is less powerful compared with the quad-core Tegra 3 that's already on the Asus Transformer Prime. The tablet supports only Wi-Fi.
It will come with HDMI and USB ports remain on the AT200, albeit the micro versions. There's also a microSD card slot to supplement the default 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.
Sources says that the tablet comes with a rather hefty price tag. With a recommended retail price of S$849 (US$674) for the 32GB version, it is more expensive than a similar Wi-Fi version of the iPad 2 (S$798).
