There may soon be a new tablet up for sale at your local retailer, as well as through online stores, one made by Toshiba and equipped with the latest, though not unexpected, set of hardware and software features.
We'd just love to be able to tell you that the Android 4.0-loaded Toshiba AT300 will be every bit as capable as any other Tegra 3 tablet but sold for just $199 / 157 Euro.
Unfortunately, it isn't the NVIDIA Kai
, so that dream will have to wait for a while longer.
If we were to guess, we'd say that the AT300 will have that same old $499 / 470 Euro price that slates seem to have fallen in love with. We may be wrong though. Toshiba did not specify it anyway.
The company did officially unveil the item, however, and did not shy away from giving the hardware and software lowdown.
The Tegra 3 SoC from NVIDIA is backed up by 1 GB of DDR3 memory and paired with 16 GB or 32 GB of NAND Flash storage space.
Also, the LCD (liquid crystal display) measures 10.1 inches in diagonal and boasts a native resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels.
What's more, a Gorilla Glass panel covers that screen, making sure that it isn't easy to inflict scratches or any other sort of damage upon the screen.
Moving on, two cameras are part of the feature set, one of 5 megapixels on the back and one of 2 megapixels on the front.
The list continues with microUSB, microHDMI, a pair of 1W speakers, SRS audio and a battery capable of keeping everything running for up to 10 hours of video playback and 12 hours of music with the screen turned off.
Finally, Toshiba included Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 10-point multitouch support and a full-size SD card slot that supports up to SDXC cards.
