Toshiba’s new 10 inch Android tablet is apparently coming in January. The company had initially promised that the Toshiba AT200 would launch in some regions by the end of 2011, but according to a post on the Toshiba Germany Facebook page, the date has been moved back by a month or so.
While Toshiba isn’t giving any reason, I wouldn’t be surprised if the delay gives the company time to load the AT200 with Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich instead of Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
The Toshiba AT200 features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, 1GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage.
The tablet has front and rear cameras and measure just 0.3 inches thick.
Toshiba’s first 10 inch tablet was released earlier this year, and it set itself apart from the crowd by offering full-sized SD card, HDMI, and USB ports. The new Toshiba AT200 won’t have any of those things, and instead will rely on mini ports. But it’s thinner and lighter than the Toshiba Thrive, if that’s the sort of thing that matters to you.
While the new tablet is due out in Europe in January, there’s still no official word on a US release date.
