AT200 will be running the Android 3.2 operating system and will be available in stores from early next month. It will be priced at $579.

Toshiba’s new slender tablet has a silver metallic finish and a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

The device has 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded with a microSD slot.

Other connectivity options include micro HDMI and micro USB 2.0 ports.

Toshiba also unveiled a 7-inch tablet – the AT1S0 – which will also run Android 3.2.
