Toshiba’s latest Android tablet looks a lot like a model the company released last year. The new Toshiba Regza AT501 should go on sale for about $426 in Japan this week, but the tablet is nearly identical to last year’s AT500 tablet.
I can only spot two differences: The new model ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean instead of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and it has a 3MP rear camera instead of a 5MP camera (which presumably helps explain the slightly lower starting price – I know $426 doesn’t sound good, but this tablet is cheaper than its predecessor, and tablet tend to cost more in Japan).
Otherwise, the Regza AT501 has all the attributes of a decent 2012-era tablet, including a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, a 1.3 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 32GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot.
It’s also designed to work as a companion for a Toshiba Regza TV, using the company’s Regza Apps software.
There’s no word on if or when we’ll see the AT501 in the US.

why are tablets getting more expensive
It’s an AT300 with an IPS display.
That being said, I wish my AT300 had an IPS display, but the thing still rocks.
The problem is that it was overpriced when I bought it way back in July, so that makes this HIDEOUSLY overpriced today.
