Core issues

That’s not to say dual-core Tegra 2 and OMAP 4 machines don’t do the job because they do, but Tegra 3 devices do everything much faster and are just as careful with the power thanks to that clever fifth virtual core.

No Ice Cream Sandwich – boo!

By way of balance I should point out that the GPS worked perfectly on the AT200, something that couldn’t be said of the Transformer Prime and the two 1.5W loudspeakers are amongst the better I’ve heard fitted to an Android tablet.

Nothing to complain about with the cameras either, which, at 5Mp front and 2Mp back, are par for the course in spec and performance while the webcam works with Skype video calling.

Toshiba reckons the AT200’s anonymous battery is good for 8 hours of video playback. Looping a 720p MP4 file with the screen at maximum brightness got me to the 6hr 45mins mark before the curtains fell, which isn’t far off. As with the Samsung Galaxy 10.1, getting to the ten-hour mark in day-to-day use is no real challenge.

Well made, but a bit late to the party and pricey too

Incidentally, for good or ill the AT200 is a Carphone Warehouse exclusive in the UK for the time being.

Verdict

At £399 for the 16GB version the AT200 isn’t great value when for an extra £100 you can have the 32GB Asus Transformer Prime with a keyboard dock and performance that simply blows the Toshiba out of the water. If you can live with the extra girth and weight a 32GB Motorola Xoom can be picked up for £250, also from Carphone Warehouse. In short, a nice machine but one launched half a year too late and costing £100 too much. ®
