Boldly going where only Apple heads
While other tablet makers are running in terror from the Apple Tablet steam roller, Toshiba is going ahead and expanding its range.
Already we have seen AT200 tablet unveiled, but the at the CEATEC electronics show near Tokyo, the company announced two more similar devices, the AT700 and AT3S0. Sadly these are just for the Japanese market.
The AT7000 weighs 558 grams and is only 7.7mm thick. With its 10.1-inch screen the beast is the world’s lightest and thinnest tablet. A 7-inch version, dubbed the AT3S0m was also shown off. It is 12.1mm thick and weighs 379 grams. The AT700 runs version 3.2 of Android, and sports 1GB of memory, 32GB of internal memory, a 1280×800-pixel resolution screen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It also has a rear-facing camera (5MP) and a front-facing one (2MP).
We don't know how much these two will cost. The only tablet Tosh has released outside the land of the Rising Sun is the Thrive and these are heavier and thicker. The AT200, which was shown off in Germany last week, and has a similar spec, should hit shelves in Europe by the end of year.
