Toshiba's twin tablets

30 Sep 2011

Toshiba has announced it will offer a 7-inch tablet alongside its 10.1-inch AT100, promising the new addition will appeal to consumers looking for an entertainment-friendly device in a portable size.

The AT1S0 features a 1200x800 HD screen and stereo speakers, and is fitted with Micro USB and Micro HDMI ports, plus a Micro SD card slot for easy content sharing.

Unlike the Kindle Fire tablet announced by Amazon yesterday, the Toshiba device has GPS and Bluetooth, plus two HD cameras. However, like the Kindle Fire it only has 8GB of internal storage, which doesn’t allow for a whole lot of video content.

The tablet is powered by Android 3.2, and will retail for $699 when it goes on sale at the end of October.
