Toshiba knocks back super-skinny tablet release

Ice Cream Sarnie-inspired delay?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Toshiba has knocked back the release of its skinnier-than-the-rest AT200 Android tablet to 2012.

Announced at the IFA consumer electronics show this past September, the 7.7mm-thick, 558g AT200 was said by Toshiba to be set to ship before the end of 2011.

But in a response to a punter posted on Toshiba Germany's Facebook page, the company admitted: "We had to move the [release] date to January 2012."

A blessing in disguise? Possibly, if the shift has been made to ensure the AT200 is released with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-loaded rather than 3.2 Honeycomb.

Not that Toshiba's Facebook page had anything to say on that point, but we can hope.

The AT200 will have a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 display, and will be equipped with a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor running at 1.2GHz. There's 2.4GHz 802.11n on board, plus GPS, and 2Mp and 5Mp front- and rear-facing cameras.
