Ultra-skinny Toshiba AT200 tablet breaks cover at IFA

Ultra-skinny Toshiba AT200 tablet breaks cover at IFAThanks to the rumour mill we were already pretty sure it was coming, but Toshiba has followed through and announced its AT200 tablet as expected.

And equally as expected, while the AT100 that's just gone on sale certainly has physical presence, the AT200 measures a decidedly skinny 7.7mm thick.

The brand new AT200 has made its debut at the IFA tech show in Berlin, and while there has been the odd jibe about the portly AT100 – or the Thrive as it was formerly known – it's clear there's not an ounce of fat on the new arrival.

At a full 1mm thinner than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and weighing just 558g, the AT100 comes with the same size 10.1in display at a resolution of 1280 x 800, and with Android 3.1 Honeycomb doing OS duties, it has all the latest Android bells and whistles too.

The processor is a TI OMAP 4430 chip running at 1.2GHz, which is slower than the 1.5GHz we had been told to expect, and you also get up to 64GB of on-board memory which can be supplemented via microSD card.

Unlike the AT100, you're restricted to the micro version of HDMI and USB connections, but that's to be expected given the slender dimensions. Nothing specific on a launch date at this stage, though it's expected to go on sale before the year is out.
