Toshiba has previously entered the tablet market with its first tablet called Thrive. The biggest problem consumers noted was that the tablet was big and heavy. Now, during the IFA in Berlin, the company has unveiled its latest tablet called the AT200.

The Toshiba AT200 is a very thin and very light tablet PC, weighing only 1.2 lbs. and measuring only 0.3 inches thick. It has a 10.1-inch touch screen display with a resolution of 1200 x 800. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, making it one of the first Android Honeycomb-powered tablets to not use the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

“The new ultra-thin 25.7cm (10.1-inch) tablet Toshiba AT200, featuring Android 3.2 Honeycomb, is the latest in a long line of Toshiba products that are masterfully engineered,” said DS Digital Products Division General Manager Marco Perino. “With a thickness of only 7.7 mm and a weight of just 558 g, the elegant Toshiba AT200 is highly mobile yet extremely smart and powerful.”

The AT200 includes most of the important things an Android tablet should have: rear and front cameras, micro USB and HDMI ports, micro SD slot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Flash support. The company said it has eight hours of battery life.

Toshiba said that the AT200 tablet will be available in the fourth quarter of 2011, but it still has not announced its pricing. If the AT200 comes at a lower price than the Thrive, it could take go against Apple’s iPad 2.
