By Hannah Braime,

Toshiba has released a new tablet that offers a slimmer, lighter experience, without compromising on power, connectivity or style. Complete with Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the app store Play, and a powerful NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, the device combines high performance, modern design, and some of the best tech features available on the market.

Specs

Weighing in at under 600 grams, and with a thickness of less than 9mm, the AT300 is perfect for gaming, browsing and reading on the move. The device has a 10.1 inch LED backlit display that supports 10-finger multi-touch and is available with 16GB or 32GB storage. As users can choose from over 500,000 apps, as well as movie rentals and e-books, through Play, you might need the extra space.

Thanks to its NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, the AT300 can handle heavy applications and gaming, providing excellent graphic performance during gaming sessions, and smooth HD video playback. The processor’s fifth core is specifically designed to help extend the device’s battery life to up to 10 hours, which gives you nearly a full day of power without needing to recharge.

Cameras and video

The AT300 has two integrated cameras, with a 5MP lens on the rear, and 2MP on the front. Both cameras produce flash photography, movie recording and video chat. A Micro-HDMI output enables you to play videos, web content and games through the device and onto a TV screen, external monitor or projector.

Connectivity

Despite its thin frame, the AT300 has an excellent range of connectivity options. These include a full-size SD card slot that can handle file sizes up to 64GB and provides a way to quickly transfer files from computers or digital cameras to the tablet. You can also connect external devices through the tablet’s micro-USB port.

The AT300’s 3G capabilities mean you have the option to access the internet from anywhere with a 3G signal, meaning you can browse the web, read email, download apps and stream videos on the go.

Software and Apps

The AT300 includes many popular Google Mobile Service applications, including Google Play, YouTube, and Google Maps. With the AT300, you also get a variety of Toshiba software and third-party applications, including Toshiba Places, which allows you to download music, movies and e-books.
