HOT ON THE HEELS of its AT100 tablet, Japanese electronics outfit Toshiba has announced its super thin and ultra light AT200 tablet.

The AT200 is set to be both the thinnest and lightest tablet on the market at a mere 7.7mm and 558g. This makes it trimmer than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Apple Ipad 2.

The tablet will have a 10.1in touchscreen with 1280x800 resolution and will run on a Texas Instruments 1.2GHz 4430 processor, according to Engadget. Internal storage will be up to 32GB and battery life will be a maximum of eight hours.

The tablet will ship with Google's Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system. It will have microUSB and microHDMI ports, a microSD slot, WiFi and Bluetooth. The AT200 will have a 5MP rear facing camera and a 2MP front facing webcam.

Overall the tablet is quite similar to the AT100, with the major differences being the size and weight of the device and slightly different specifications.

Toshiba has said that the AT200 will be available in the fourth quarter of this year but it hasn't announced the price. The tablet looks seriously nice and if the price point is right it could be the biggest rival to the Ipad 2 to date. µ
