Summary: Toshiba is looking to hop in the mad-rat-race with another tablet PC, the AT200 which will take iPad 2 & Galaxy Tab head on.
You must be aware of the fact that Toshiba has already jumped on the bandwagon with its initial attempt of crafting a rather bulky looking Thrive tablet which had a limited market appeal.
Looks like Toshiba has learned quite a lot from earlier mistakes with the Thrive model, and are looking to bring AT200 to the market which is only 7.7mm thick and weighs at 558 grams. Interestingly, it is bit thinner than both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Apple iPad 2 tablets. However, you will notice a lot of features similar to Thrive in Toshiba AT200. To increase the functionality of the tablet, you will find variety of ports, for example: Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB, MicroSD, etc etc…
Toshiba also claims that once charged, the battery has a capability of an eight-hour media playing. Other major specifications in this 10.1” device are of 1280*800 screen resolution, 1GB RAM, 1.2 GHZ TI OMAP4 Dual-Core processor and up to 64 GB storage.
We have no specific date for the release of Toshiba AT200 in North America; however, it is expected to be launched in Europe at the end of the year 2011. Will you consider buying this tablet PC?
