We love Android tablets running Honeycomb, so new competitors are always welcome. Toshiba today announced that its AT100 tablet will hit Australian shelves at the end of the month, selling for $579.
The AT100 has a 10.1 inch screen, USB, HDMI and SD Card slots, dual camera (2MP front and 5MP rear), and stereo speakers. For frequent travellers, an additional 6-cell battery (priced at $79.95) is a nice inclusion that hasn’t yet been widely duplicated in the tablet market. No word yet on carrier deals, and given Toshiba’s lack of existing relationships in that space, it might be reasonable to assume that outright buy will be the main model.
I’m still a big fan of the 7-inch form factor for tablets, but in the larger-screen space, this looks like an interesting competitor to the Galaxy Tab 10.1v and the Motorola Xoom. Tempted?
