Toshiba WT200 Windows 7 tablet coming to America?

The Toshiba WT200 is a tablet with a 10.1 inch display, an Intel Atom Cedar Trail processor, and Windows 7 operating system. Versions of the tablet are available in Japan, Canada, and Australia, among other places.

Now it looks like the WT200 may be headed to the United States.

A listing for Toshiba’s 10 inch Windows tablet showed up this week at the FCC website. Aside from some pictures of the FCC ID label and some test results, there aren’t many details in the product listing.

But if the American version of the tablet is anything like the international models, here’s what we can probably expect:

  • 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display
  • 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N2600 dual core processor
  • Intel GMA 3600 graphics
  • 2GB of DDR3 800 MHzmemory
  • 64GB solid state drive
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Bluetooth 3.0

The tablet has front and rear cameras, HDMI, SD card, and USB ports, and an IPS display with wide viewing angles.

It measures 10.6″ x 6.9″ x 0.56″ and weighs about 1.8 pounds.

Toshiba sells the WT200 for about $700 and up in Canada. I suspect the US price will be similar if and when the tablet goes on sale in the States.

    I’ve had the misfortune of using Windows 7 on a tablet for an extended period. It’s truly awful; they’ve plastered touch screen hacks over the desktop paradigm and it just doesn’t work. There is really no comparison between Win 7 and iOS or Android on a tablet. Windows 8 is going to have to make some really fundamental changes if it’s going to compete.
    (Oh yeah, the hardware is irrelevant. No matter how sluggish the tablet’s performance, it’s going to be faster than the UI interaction).

    This weighs slightly more than the Toshiba Thrive 10.1″ Android tablet, but has better specs compared to the Thrive. 

    As the Thrive is considered one of the heaviest Android tablets, the WT200 will feel heavy after a while, just as the Thrive does.

    I think Toshiba needs to make a 7″-8″ version of this so it can comfortably be carried for long periods of time.

    I wanted to say something comparing Android on ARM tablets, Windows 8 on ARM tablets, and Windows 8 on x86 tablets, but I may have to wait for actual products before drawing conclusions.
