JAPANESE HARDWARE FIRM Toshiba announced a budget addition to its range of tablets today, the uninspiringly named AT300SE.
Running the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and powered by an Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of DDR3L-1333 RAM, the AT3000SE is an "every day and cost-conscious" version of its AT300 premium tablet.
It is based on and almost as thin as Toshiba's more expensive AT300 tablet, with a depth of 10.5mm and weighing 625 grams.
The AT300SE has a 10.1in 16:10 aspect ratio 1280x800 resolution display for watching widescreen movies and will run for at least ten hours on a battery charge, Toshiba said. Around the back there's a rather unimpressive 3MP camera and on the front there's a 1.2MP camera for video chat.
Toshiba claims the AT300SE is easy to carry around when on the move due to its "textured design that gives a sophisticated look whilst the dotted pattern on the rear provides a sturdy grip".
The AT300SE supports additional external hard disk storage capacity via a microUSB port and has a microSD card slot with SDHC/SDXC support for up to 64GB of additional storage. There's also support for WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity as standard.
Toshiba said the AT300SE tablet will be available in the UK this quarter starting at £299.99 and will ship along will stand, case and screen protector accessory options. µ
