Toshiba readying the world’s thinnest 10.1-inch tablet for CES
Toshiba is taking a bit of a risk here with the bold statement that they are getting ready to unveil the thinnest and the lightest 10.1-inch tablet at CES next week especially since their latest effort, the Android-powered Thrive wasn’t exactly on the thin or light side.

As far as specs go there isn’t anything to go along with this statement. Just the other day a benchmark showed a quad-core Toshiba tablet which could very well be the one that they are touting as the thinnest and lightest. The benchmark results were similar to what has been seen with the Asus Transformer Prime, which is the first quad-core tablet to hit the market.

If Toshiba can make good on this bold promise then they would have a real player in the tablet game if they deliver in the ways that they couldn’t with their first tablets. There really isn’t much else known at this time but with CES only days away any questions that you may have should be answered soon.

thin is good, but do remember the updates for the original thrive 10" and the thrive 7" to ice cream sandwich then that would be superb now because it's thinner... will all the ports be gone? or will it stay but with micro to them? i hope they keep all the ports because it is very very very very handy to have all of them

That is a risk especially with the Ipad 3 release looming around the corner in March they might only have a month to say it.

I agree with KingKurogiii, It has to be the AT200 excite. Remember a few weeks passed, the AT200 was to be released in Canada in time for Christmas and it was pulled for some reason. I plan to make the excite my first tablet so I hope the delay was to upgrade the specs.
