The rather conservative design is matched by the colour scheme. The back and sides are brushed metal, the latter divided by a black vanity strip while on the front a black bezel surrounds the 1280 x 800 Gorilla Glass LCD screen. The metal makes it feel a bit cold but that’s the only aesthetic grumble I have.

The Toshiba TruBright screen itself isn’t the brightest I have ever encountered on an Android tablet, despite the name – blacks look blacker on a PlayBook but viewing angles are robust and colours well saturated.

Inside things are similarly less than ground-breaking. Hauling the coal is a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual-core chip with 1GB of RAM, exactly the same as you will find in a Motorola Xoom 2. The OS is the same too, stock Honeycomb 3.2 rather than the more desirable Ice Cream Sandwich.

At the time of writing Toshiba hasn’t stated unequivocally that the AT200 will get an ICS update. I’d not buy one until it does. But it’s the CPU that’s the real rub because the quad-core Tegra 3 chipset in the Asus Transformer Prime has moved the game on for high-end tablets and by quite some margin.
