The Toshiba AT200 tablet, which the Japanese corporation says is the thinnest of its type, is coming to Britain soon and will be available from Carphone Warehouse. The ten-inch tablet is supposed to be just 7.7 millimetres thick. It’s also supposed to feature a brushed aluminium casing, which I believe has raised a few pleasant eyebrows.
Interestingly, the operating system is not Ice Cream Sandwich but the previous incarnation of Android, namely Honeycomb. So anyone hoping to run Android Apps on the latest platform will be disappointed. Whether the mobile gadget will be updated isn’t known, but I would be rather surprised if this facility is not available.
The Toshiba AT200 tablet features a 1.2GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 microprocessor, with 1GB of RAM. It also possesses a PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing unit (GPU). Other features include 16GB of internal storage expandable to 32GB via microSD cards. Also available are Wi-Fi, Micro USB and an HDMI output. There is also a 32GB model that might be expandable to 64GB, but I’m unsure about this.
There are two cameras. The first one is a five-megapixel rear-facing version capable of 720p video capture, while the second is a front-facing two-megapixel camera for video calls.
If the Toshiba AT200 is something that interests you then you can get it as mentioned above from Carphone Warehouse. The 16GB version is £399 while the 32GB model will set you back £449.
I understand both models will be available from the 15th February.
