Toshiba AT200 is a tablet that was announced back in September and it quickly gained popularity, since it was the world’s thinnest tablet and took pride in that. Now we also have a launch time frame, at least for Canada: early 2012. Here’s the device I’m talking about:

Toshiba Canada’s website claims that this product will be called Toshiba Excite and it will be out in January. However, the guys of Mobile Syrup confirmed the launch for February, without mentioning a price tag. This slate is a mere 7.7mm thick, it runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and it packs a 10.1 inch display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. There’s also WiFi on board, as well as Bluetooth 2,1 and a 1.2GHz dual core TI OMAP 4430 processor.

There’s also a 5 megapixel camera available at the rear, a 2 megapixel camera upfront, plus mini USB 2.0 connectivity and a microSD card slot also makes its way on board. Add to that 16GB/32GB of internal memory and you’ve got the whole picture. Excite A200 is the second Android slate from Toshiba coming to Canada, following the failure called Toshiba Thrive.

  • What the hell is this tablet?? TI OMAP 4430? What about 4460? Without 3G? Honeycomb in February 2012?
    I think they got the year wrong. With this specs should have launched at the beginning of this year, this it’s soooo outdated.
    Excite? Maybe “Boring”, that’s a better name

    Everyday .. technology advances… but calling it a failure… with 3 connectivity options when it came out… is not a failure to me….I’m excited about the excite too.

    the specs may be very 2011, but perhaps this tablet is aiming for a less expensive, casual market? better hardware is good and all but not every person needs it.

    Toshiba Better not price it even close to the Asus Trnasformer Prime.  It should be at the most $450 for the 32 Gb and $400 for the 16GB version.  Because lets be honest, it’s processor is definitely last generation.  I still want one though.  I’ll wait for the higher resolution Quad cores that will be released in mid 2012.
