The lightest and thinnest tablet in the world has entered the market. Toshiba AT200 has a thickness of 7.7 mm and a weight of 1.2 pounds (approximately 535 grams). The tablet has a display of 10.1 inch supporting a 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and 16 million colors. With such a body, the tablet looks quite attractive and appealing. The outer edge along the back of the tab has a sharp edge that may be very inconvenient. The magnesium alloy frame defends minor scuffs. It looks like the tablet needed a little more tightening to ensure a compact and perfect body.
The tab is equipped with 1 GB of RAM. It includes a 1.2 GHz T1 OMAP dual-core processor and runs on an Android 3.2 Honeycomb Operating System. It also features a 5 MP rear facing camera along with a 2 MP front facing camera. The device boasts microSD card slot, integrated speakers, headphone output, micro HDMI port and micro-USB port for media transfer and charging. The gadget also supports WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS as connectivity options. The battery offers 12 hours of usage as claimed by the company. However according to one review the tablet runs for around six and a half hours only. So, the battery is not too good.
The 16GB model of the device is being sold for 329 pounds whereas the 32 GB version has a price of 379 pounds. Overall, this tablet looks quite good. It has a light weight and great body yet the roughly finished edges give it an imperfect look. Also the cheaper tablets are available in the market with an Android 2.4 ICS operating system and Toshiba is offering the older version yet. After all, looks are not everything.
