Toshiba AT200 Tablet, is the company back for good in the Tablet Business?
I am sure that all of you recall Toshiba’s rather inelegant withdrawal of the market tablet with their first Android Slate, well actually Toshiba did not really stop making them, it is rather resellers that were returning them back to Toshiba, at least in the UK.
But, it is without saying that a company like Toshiba needs to have a tablet and needs to sell it at any cost for the sake of the company’s survival in consumer electronic.
Today the company decided to unleash a new Honeycomb powered Tablet, the AT200 that comes with some pretty nice specifications with among them a sleek design and a thickness of just 7.7mm thin and a weight of 558g!
Other specs are rather “consensual” with a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280×800 resolution, a TI OMAP 4430 CPU at 1.2GHz, MicroSD Card slot and up to 64GB of internal memory.
Not that I have anything against Toshiba, but when you have companies like Samsung, LG and Sony as competitors who unveiled rather impressive devices at IFA, I am scared that this AT200 is somehow slightly underpowered.
“The new ultra-thin 25.7cm (10.1″) tablet Toshiba AT200, featuring Android™ 3.2, Honeycomb, is the latest in a long line of Toshiba products that are masterfully engineered”, said Marco Perino, General Manager DS Digital Products Division. “With a thickness of only 7.7mm and a weight of just 558g, the elegant Toshiba AT200 is highly mobile yet extremely smart and powerful.”
All essentials on-board
To connect with other devices the ultra-slim tablet comes with all essential interfaces and ports onboard: amongst them micro-USB, micro-SD, Wi-Fi™ and Bluetooth®. The micro-HDMI ®-port allows streaming HD content to the large screen of a TV. Front and back HD cameras are ideal for video conferencing and augmented reality applications.
High-quality media consumption – no matter where you are
The Toshiba AT200 allows users to enjoy videos at home and while out and about. It features a brilliant 25.7cm (10.1″) high-definition screen that displays pictures with crisp colours and in full detail.
Despite being ultra-thin, it allows up to eight hours of video consumption.
Sound quality at its best
To complement the first-class video capabilities the new Toshiba tablet with stereo speakers allows for a high quality sound playback. The Adaptive Sound Device Enhancer’s sophisticated algorithm maximises sound quality to achieve a quality that normally only can be found with large speakers. Plus, a technology called Sound Masking Equalizer identifies and enhances sound that is being masked or distorted by surrounding noise. The result is a well- balanced, powerful playback of music and video sounds even under high ambient noise levels.
Endless usage possibilities
Toshiba’s new tablet also offers a rich web browsing experience including support of Adobe® Flash® Player, access to more than 250,000 apps on Android Market™ and Toshiba Places for endless possibilities.
