Toshiba Regza AT500 Tablet Launches In Japan

Japanese Telecom giant KDDI has launched Toshiba's latest tablet, the Regza AT500/26F, which is scheduled to be launched towards the end of June and will face the likes of the Asus Transformer Prime and the Acer Iconia A510.

The device is only 9mm thick and weighs under 600g, like the two aforementioned tablets, it is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor (the T30SL) but clocked at only 1.3GHz.

It has a five megapixel rear camera with HD recording (with flash and AF) and a two megapixel front facing one. Other features include a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixels display, optional 4G capabilities, RFID, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, an ISDB- T (1seg) tuner, Wi-Fi, microSD card slot and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

No details about when it will be launched outside Japan and at what price. Toshiba has had a patchy past when it comes to tablets with its first models being plagued with issues when they launched back in 2011 in the UK. Since then Toshiba appears to have adopted a low-key profile instead.

The company made a comeback this year with a new line of tablets including a massive 13in model complementing a portfolio that includes a 7in quad core model and the AT500.
