Toshiba launched two new tablet models last night, the 10 inch Toshiba Regza AT700 and the 7 inch Toshiba Regza AT3S0. And when I say new… I mean we’ve actually seen both of these tablets before — just not these model numbers.
The 10 inch tablet appears to be a rebranded version of the recently-introduced Toshiba AT200. Meanwhile AT3S0 is apparently just another model number for the tablet that was previously known as the Toshiba Thrive 7″.
Both tablets run Google Android 3.2 Honeyocmb and high resolution 1280 x 800 pixel displays. But the screen size isn’t the only thing separating the two new tablets.
The Toshiba Regza AT700 measures 7.7mm (about 0.3 inches) thick, making it the thinnest 10 inch tablet — until someone rises to the challenge and releases a 7.6mm tablet. Given the thinness arms race that we’ve been seeing between Apple, Samsung, Toshiba, and others, I suspect that could happen before the end of the year.
The Regza AT700 weighs about 1.23 pounds, features a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, front and rear cameras, and micro USB, micro HDMI, and micro SD card ports.
Toshiba’s new 7 inch Regza AT3S0 is powered by a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. It also has 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It features front and rear cameras, micro USB, microSD and mini USB ports.
The AT3S0 has the same basic design as the larger Toshiba Thrive 10 inch tablet, including the rubberized back panel. But it doesn’t have full-sized ports or a removable battery. It measures 12.1mm or about 0.48 inches thick and weighs 0.84 pounds.
Both new tablets are expected to launch in Japan in December.
