Toshiba Excite (AT200)


$520.00 Released March, 2012

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Thinnest tablet ever (7.7mm). Micro-HDMI port. Expandable storage through microSD.

The Cons:Metal design may hamper wireless performance (WiFi/Bluetooth).

The Toshiba AT200 is the slimmed-down successor to the Toshiba Thrive tablet. Like its predecessor, it is 10" in size and runs Google's Android Honeycomb tablet operating system, however ditches the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor in favor of the TI OMAP 4430 at 1.2GHz.

Product Shot 2 This TI processor is the same that is used in BlackBerry's PlayBook and Motorola's Droid Bionic, and is a close sibling to the the one found in Google's Galaxy Nexus phone (TI OMAP 4460). As perhaps its most visible change, the AT200 is ultra-slim at only 7.7mm, making it 1.1mm thinner than 2011's thinnest tablet (Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1). The appearance has also changed drastically from a rubberized back to a brushed metal look. Its display is a 10" high-resolution LCD at 1,280 x 800. The tablet can be ordered between 16GB and 64GB of on-board storage, but can be expanded by up to 32GB microSD cards. It also retains its venerable selection of ports, featuring micro-HDMI and a microUSB.

dom: #toshiba_at200 Although we don't have a release date for this one yet, it's nice to see that Toshiba is moving quick on the Thrive's disappointing thickness. I still think that the Thrive is the most useful tablet, and its rubberized back is probably better than the all-metal design. But that thinness of 7.7mm is nothing to scoff at nevertheless :-) and glad to see the ports still there, albeit now in "micro" formats. Sep 1, 11
