Toshiba has made its 10in Android tablet available to buy online and will release it in stores from 15 February, with prices starting at £399.
The Toshiba AT200 features a 10.1in (1,280x800) screen and thin form factor (7.7mm). The device is powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 1.2GHz processor and has 1GB of DDR2 RAM.
A 5-megapixel camera will be included on the rear and a 2-megapixel camera on the front to address multimedia needs. Users will be offered the choice between 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, which is similar to what other tablet manufacturers offer.
The 535g tablet will pack a number of ports including micro USB, micro HDMI and micro SD connections. Wireless connectivity is set to come in the form of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which is the standard for tablets.
In terms of software, the AT200 will be shipped with Android Honeycomb 3.2 and Adobe Flash 10.3.
Rival tablets such as the quad-core Asus Transformer Prime are available with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Toshiba has yet to confirm whether its AT200 will be upgradeable.
Toshiba does not appear to have loaded many business friendly apps on the AT200, unlike the Motorola Xoom 2. But the device will offer access to the Android Marketplace and the manufacturer's own Toshiba Places store, so productivity apps will be available.
Toshiba has given a breakdown of what to expect in terms of battery life, and if figures prove to be accurate they could make the device an attractive purchase.
Users can expect up to eight hours of video playback. This is not quite as good as the 10 hours provided by the iPad 2, but represents a working day nonetheless.
Prices for the Toshiba AT200 start at £399 for the 16GB model, rising to £449 for the 32GB edition. The device is available exclusively at www.carphonewarehouse.com and in-store from 15 February.
