IFA 2011: Toshiba's AT200 Is The Thinnest Android Tabletby Jason Inofuentes on September 1, 2011 11:24 AM EST
Toshiba is joining the race to produce the thinnest possible tablet with their newly announced AT200 tablet, successor to the Toshiba Thrive/AT100. Eschewing the full sized ports and chintzy swappable backs of its predecessor, the AT200 will feature TI's OMAP 4430 (seen here in the Droid 3) running at 1.2 GHz and backed up by 1 GB of RAM, running Android 3.2, along with micro-USB, micro-HDMI and microSD for connectivity.The new design features a brushed emtal back and a stylish, if all too common, silver accent line around the bezel. At 7.7 mm thin, this is a full millimeter thinner than Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, while sporting a similar 10.1" display. We're excited to see how Honeycomb fairs on non-Tegra platforms and Toshiba's effort seems impressive for its form factor, hopefully its user experience will be a bit more refined than the Thrive that came before it. We've linked the PR below and will update this post when we have some decent press shots in our hands.
