The Toshiba AT200 is the slimmest tablet in the world - it outdoes the iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 by more than just a hair - its profile measures the ridiculous 0.3 inches (7.7mm), noticeably less than the 0.35” (8.8mm) profile of the second-gen iPad and the 0.34” (8.6mm) girth of the Tab 10.1. Design seems to be at the core of AT200 as it’s not only the size, but also the materials as we’re tempted to say that the tablet “brings a sexy back” looking at its brushed metal back cover. Toshiba has definitely learned its lesson after the bulky Toshiba Thrive.
Under the hood, the Toshiba AT200 runs on a 1.2GHz TI OMAP4430 CPU, but the tablet also builds on the Thrive legacy by offering a micro-USB, microSD and micro-HDMI ports.
The tablet features a 10.1-inch screen and weighs 1.23 pounds (558g). It can connect to a HD TV via an HDMI port and you can also expand the memory via a microSD card slot. The rear side of the tablet houses a 5-megapixel camera, while overall the device promises to last for up to 8 hours of video playback.
The Toshiba AT200’s release date is in the fourth quarter of the year for Europe and we’ll definitely be on the look for the exact price and more details, which should come soon.
