Toshiba unveils its new family of tablets
Toshiba has released a family of new tablets ranging in size from 7.7 inches to a massive 13.3 inches to suit a wide range of consumers.
There are three tablets in the line-up and all running the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
There is the 7.7-inch AT270, the 10.1-inch AT300 and the 13.3-inch AT330.
AT270 – $539
The smallest device in the Toshiba tablet family has a sharp 7.7-inch AMOLED screen and has the same resolution – 1280 x 800 – as its 10-inch big brother.
The device has a silver finish and is small enough to hold comfortably in one hand so its ideal for reading ebooks.
Under the hood is an NVIDIA Tegra T30SL processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage. Memory can be expanded with the built-in microSD card slot.
Weighing in at just 350g, the AT270 is 204.5mm long, 135.2mm wide and just 7.85mm thick.
There is a 5 megapixel camera on the rear and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and battery life is rated at eight hours on a full charge.
AT300 – $539
For those who want to move up to a larger screen, there’s the AT300 with a 10.1-inch display which has automatic brightness control.
This larger screen allows the device to be used as a productivity tool whether you’re in the office or on the go.
But the device also works just as well for relaxing with the 16:10 aspect ratio perfect for movies and web browsing.
The AT300 is a larger version of the AT270 with the same screen resolution, same cameras, RAM and internal memory. And like the AT270, the AT300 has an expandable microSD card slot.
What the AT300 adds is a micro HDMI port and has the same eight hour battery life.
The device weighs 560g and is 260.7mm long, 178.9mm wide and 8.93mm thick.
AT330 – $699
The big daddy of the Toshiba range is the AT330 with a massive 13.3-inch screen – making it the biggest tablet on the market.
The 16:9 aspect ratio cinematic screen has a resolution of 1600 x 900 and offers plenty of room for any task – work or play.
It is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra T30S processor and has a full size SD card slot and Bluetooth 3.0.
Toshiba’s AT330 weighs 998g and is 343.77mm long, 211.23mm wide and just 9.81mm thick.
The AT330, like all of the Toshiba tablets, has a Corning Gorilla Glass display and sturdy aluminium construction to handle the day-to-day usage.
The range’s in-built stereo speakers also provide respectable sound so your music and movies will sound great.
The three Toshiba tablets – the 7.7-inch AT270 ($539), the 10.1-inch AT300 ($539) and the 13.3-inch AT330 ($699) will be available in stores in late June.
