Toshiba AT300 announced: 10.1-inch ICS Tegra 3 tablet clad in aluminum
The Toshiba AT300 is the latest tablet to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and with a 10.1-inch display, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip and a thin, aluminum body, the tablet is among the better looking slates out there. Also, the Toshiba AT300 comes with the promise of 10 hours of battery life, which is quite impressive.

The first thing to notice about the AT300 is its gorgeous design – the tablet has a thin, 0.35-inch (8.95mm) body clad in aluminum. The whole package weighs 1.3 pounds (590 g).

The Toshiba AT300 features a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass LED-backlit display with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. Silicon-wise, the quad-core Tegra 3 is paired with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, which means plenty of processing power.

The tablet also comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front facing shooter, good for video conferencing.

You can get it in either a 16GB or a 32GB internal memory variations, and both support a microSD slot for up to 64GB cards.

The Toshiba AT300 release date is set for June in select markets. In the UK for once it will cost 329 British pounds, the same as a 16GB iPad 2. How do you like what you see?

You think? This is 1GB of DDR3 RAM. The new iPad has 1GB DDR2. Do the math.

You are aware that the iPad runs an entirely different OS, right? You can't compare RAM requirements between OSes. You may as well commpare it to Linux or BB OS.

I'm comparing random access memory technology, not OS. I only used the iPad as a standard of what tablet manufacturers are using component wise this year but I guess I ignored the "sensitivity" issue. If it makes you feel any better let me do a Android- only comparison: The Asus Transformer Prime uses 1GB DDR2 which means this Toshiba will have higher peak data transfer rates and clock speeds.

Shoving out more generic android tablets isn't helping. They need to push out decent tablet apps. The selection is pathetic.

@ c. hack I agree 100%. At least put more ram in & better resolution. 2gigs of ram will be standard on high end cell phones soon. & The best Android tabs don't have better resolution than the Note (which came out last year)
