With the launch of Toshiba AT 200, they have shown the world what they have in store in the tablet segment. Now they have come up with a 13.3 inch tablet concept that runs on Tegra 3 quad core. The prototype was displayed at a conference in the United Kingdom. The new device is thin and looks beautiful.
The device is said to be thin and light weight, even if it looks big. The already launched AT 200 from Toshiba is the thinnest and one of the light weight Android tablets available in the market.
The device has many ports assigned for connectivity and appropriate slots are available for Universal Serial Bus (USB), HDMI and memory cards. The device is equipped with rear and front cameras, and the specifics of the cameras are not available at this point of time. The back plate of the device is similar to that of the 7.7 inch device, but is not identical.
It is not clear whether the consumer version of the concept will hit the market. It is learned from sources from Toshiba that the prototype materializing into consumer product will depend on the response of the customers towards the prototype.
There is no information available on availability of the device and even Toshiba is not sure when they will be able to launch the product. The price of the device too is not known. There is no official confirmation about the kind of screen that will be used in the device. The 7.7 inch device is made up of AMOLED screen, but it is not sure whether AMOLED will be used for such a big device.
The 7.7 inch device is based on Android operating system, and since the 13.3 inch device was not switched on during the conference, it is not clear which operating system is used in it. How ever, Toshiba has said that they will come up with tablets working on Windows 8 operating system. There is an increased chance that Toshiba will use different operating systems for different tablets.
This makes it difficult to make any guess on the operating system that the 13.3 inch device will use. With light weight and it cool thin appearance, it is sure that it will be able to find its place among the business class for sure. It is for Toshiba to decide on commercialising the product and customers don’t have an option but to wait until then.
