News from the oversea say Toshiba bring the slimmest tablet AT200, the 10.1-inch Android tablet previewed at Berlin’s IFA exhibition. Measuring a mere 7.7mm in depth, Toshiba has beaten both Apple, whose iPad measures 8.8mm, and Samsung’s latest 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy 7.7 which is 7.87mm fat. Unlike ipad and most other tablets, Toshiba’s AT200 eschews the accepted gloss black styling and instead offers the increasingly popular brushed aluminum look. But the AT200 appears to be most serious tablet’s effort at the genre yet. Its LCD Touch Screen is 10.1-inch with 1280×800 pixel resolution and hosts Android Honeycomb. Like Giayee’s M801, the AT200 design with back and front cameras, while 5MP and 2MP respectively. What’s more, the AT200 goes OMAP 4430(1.2GHz) from Texas Instruments, 1GB RAM and 64GB memory. It is said that the AT200 manages 8 hours on single charge. And, just from the device, the AT200 have a mini HDMI output, a mini USB slot and a microSD card slot. Compare with AT200, Galaxy Tablet seem to be a little thick, and no the same as iPad, it is just a new sight of Android tablets. Toshiba has not announced the date; we will see the AT200 on the market before Google announce the new Android version.
