Toshiba is at it again in the tablet market, unveiling a brand new Android-powered device that will have at least a few of you out there clamoring to get your hands on it. This tablet in particular seems to focus almost primarily on portability, which is something that needs to be a focus for a tablet. The Toshiba AT200 features an ultra-slim frame, and also a remarkably lightweight profile, which should make it plenty easy to carry around.
The device features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800; there’s a 1.2GHz processor inside the tablet; it will hold up to 64GB of built-in memory, and feature 1GB of DDR2 RAM. As for ports, you’ll find a micro-USB, microSD, and micro-HDMI. There’s also built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. There’s a 5MP camera around the back with a 2MP front-facing shooter. It weighs only 558g, and features a 7.7mm thick profile.
The Toshiba AT200 will be running Android 3.2 right out of the box, so that’s good news in of itself. You can check out the full press release below.

“The new ultra-thin 25.7cm (10.1″) tablet Toshiba AT200, featuring Android™ 3.2, Honeycomb, is the latest in a long line of Toshiba products that are masterfully engineered”, said Marco Perino, General Manager DS Digital Products Division. “With a thickness of only 7.7mm and a weight of just 558g, the elegant Toshiba AT200 is highly mobile yet extremely smart and powerful.“
All essentials on-board
To connect with other devices the ultra-slim tablet comes with all essential interfaces and ports onboard: amongst them micro-USB, micro-SD, Wi-Fi™ and Bluetooth®. The micro-HDMI®-port allows streaming HD content to the large screen of a TV. Front and back HD cameras are ideal for video conferencing and augmented reality applications.
High-quality media consumption – no matter where you are
The Toshiba AT200 allows users to enjoy videos at home and while out and about. It features a brilliant 25.7cm (10.1″) high-definition screen that displays pictures with crisp colours and in full detail. Despite being ultra-thin, it allows up to eight hours of video consumption .
Sound quality at its best
To complement the first-class video capabilities the new Toshiba tablet with stereo speakers allows for a high quality sound playback. The Adaptive Sound Device Enhancer’s sophisticated algorithm maximises sound quality to achieve a quality that normally only can be found with large speakers. Plus, a technology called Sound Masking Equalizer identifies and enhances sound that is being masked or distorted by surrounding noise. The result is a well-balanced, powerful playback of music and video sounds even under high ambient noise levels.
Endless usage possibilities
Toshiba’s new tablet also offers a rich web browsing experience including support of Adobe® Flash® Player, access to more than 250,000 apps on Android Market™ and Toshiba Places for endless possibilities.
