Toshiba upped the ante today by announcing a ultra-thin, ultra-weight android honeycomb tablet called AT200 which measures just 7.7mm thickness and 558 grams! Toshiba unveiled this 10.1 inch display screen beauty during IFA 2011. This tablet is expected to be available in 4th quarter of this year in Europe first. Toshiba has masterfully engineered this device. The alumnium brushed feel on the back of the tablet lends a classy look to this tablet. The tablet has the best in class hardware at super-thin and light-weight form factor. The tablet comes with powerful stereo speakers with Adaptive sound enhancer algorithm that provides superior loud audio output! Looks like Samsung needs to go back to the drawing room. But frankly, how thin can these tablets can get? Getting thinner and thinner is not possible without eliminating the worries of fragility! After all, you need to feel the tablet at hand that gives you reasonable build quality. We cannot comment on how it feels unless we lift this device ourselves. We will be getting our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 very soon and then we can probably draw relative inference.
