The tablet world may be utterly dominated by the iPad, but that doesn't mean there aren't alternatives out there for Apple-dodging Android fans. The Toshiba AT200 is one such slate, offering a clean design and a superbly slim chassis. It's not running the latest version of Android, nor does it pack the same quad-core power of some of its rivals, so will its skinny frame be enough to charm the money from your wallet?The AT200 is available now, Wi-Fi-only with 16GB of storage for £329 or with 32GB for £379.The 10.1-inch Android tablet world is awash with slates that are nigh on impossible to tell apart. Toshiba has made the AT200 supremely slim to try and distinguish it from the masses. At its preview in November last year, it was thinner than any tablet then available, and I've not seen anything slimmer since. It's a mere 7.7mm thick, which knocks a sizeable slice off the 9.4mm of Apple's new iPad. Even the iPhone 4 is 9mm thick, so the AT200's slimness really does feel quite a surprise in your hand. If you hold it in one palm and the new iPad in the other, you really can reallty tell the difference. At 535g, it's much lighter than the iPad's 652g, making it more comfortable to hold for long periods. Thinner than the iPad, the AT200 is also considerably lighter, which makes it easier to hold for longer.
The folks at Toshiba must be kicking themselves; they've just released the AT200 – also known as the Excite – just as the world is clamouring over the latest iPad. So it needs to have something to grab attention – and happily it does. The Toshiba AT200 is officially the slimmest tablet on the market at the moment. The AT200 certainly looks the part, with its brushed aluminium reverse and a black, narrow bezel. It runs the Android Honeycomb operating system, so its Home, Menu and Back buttons are on the screen, which means the front of the device is kept minimalistic. On the sides you'll discover a good selection of ports – there's a microSD memory cards slot, so you can expand the 16GB of onboard memory, as well as Mini HDMI and Micro USB connections. The chassis is just 7.7mm wide, making it slimmer than the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the new iPad (and indeed, every other tablet out there). Not only that, but it's really light at 535g, which makes it comfortable to hold in one hand. Being that slim does have a downside though – we noticed that the device flexes in the middle should it be pulled or pushed. It's not a major concern – but we'd definitely suggest using a case if you are going to carry the AT200 around.
