Toshiba UK has officially announced the launch of the new Toshiba AT300 thin and lightweight Android 4.0 tablet. Toshiba says that while the tablet is beautifully thin and lightweight, it doesn’t compromise on power or performance. The machine uses a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor packed inside a brushed aluminum body.

The display of the tablet is a 10.1-inch LED backlit unit with a 1280 x 800 resolution. That screen supports 10-finger multitouch input, and the tablet is 8.95 mm thick with a weight of 590 g. The tablet comes in two storage capacities, including 16 GB or 32 GB, and it has 1 GB of RAM. Like all Tegra 3 processors, the little tablet rocks an additional fifth core specifically for everyday tasks to enable longer battery life. Toshiba says that battery life is up to 10 hours per charge.

The display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass to make it scratch and break resistant. The tablet uses a simple holographic user interface and has up to five customizable home screens and full access to the Google Play store. The rear camera is a five-megapixel unit, and the front camera is two megapixels. The rear camera can record movies and the front supports video chatting and more. The tablet also has integrated stereo speakers and a micro HDMI output. Toshiba also includes a full-size SD card slot supporting up to 64 GB cards and the tablet is available with optional 3G. The tablet also has integrated Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi. Shipments are set to start in Q2 at an undisclosed price.
