Toshiba AT300 10in Android tablet review

Hello Tosh, got a new Tegra?

Soft sell

Put to the test, the AT300 demonstrates commendable performance. All the benchmark numbers are where you want them: the AnTuTu app returning a score just shy of 11,000 and the Sunspider browser test coming in at a solid 1,700. All the graphically intense games and 1080p videos files I threw at the AT300 ran perfectly.

AnTuTu and Sunspider results

There’s nothing wrong with the rest of the fixtures and fittings either. The 5Mp and 2Mp cameras perform well and the two speakers at the bottom of the device produce a reasonable amount of volume, even if the sound quality is not quite up to the standard of recent Acer tablets.

Swype keyboard and ThinkFree WP app

On the software front, Toshiba provides attractive and competent DLNA-connected media player, nicely laid out file manager, full instals of ThinkFree’s Mobile office suite and SplashTop Remote HD along with a slightly tweaked version of the Swype keyboard. All welcome stuff. Toshiba is keeping mum on the size of the AT300’s battery but my usual 720p video-loop test ran to the 7 hours and 40 minutes mark before the lights went out which is par for the course.

Toshiba's file manager appears more refined than most

The official RRP for the the AT300 is £299 but it’s easily available for £285, which makes it quite the bargain and cheaper than my previous best-buy recommendation for a 10in Android tablet: the heavier, thicker and less powerful Acer A510.

Good performer and a reasonable price

Verdict

The latest Toshiba tablet may not set the world on fire but the mid-range Tegra 3 chip and SD card slot make it a powerful and useful bit of kit. Available for under £300, it’s a pretty good deal and is now the obvious choice if you are after a 10in 720p Android tablet. ®
