Toshiba to Release World's Thinnest Tablet at CES

Toshiba has announced it will reveal the world's thinnest tablet (10-inch thickness) at next week's Consumer Electronics Show.

The company, on their official Japanese language website, disclosed that this is the thinnest and lightest tablet in the product line slated for the upcoming show. The product line will also include LCD TV sets and the latest Ultrabook laptops.

For the time being, Toshiba has refused to disclose any other details concerning the tablet release. According to reports, the tablet is already available in Japanese markets for around $800, reports CNET.

The tablet, called Regza AT700, is powered by Android 3.2. Last October, it was introduced for the first time during the CEATEC show in Tokyo.

The new device is 7.7mm thick - 13 percent thinner than Apple iPad 2, which measures 8.8 mm. The Regza AT700 weighs 613 grams and runs on a 1.2GHz, dual-core chip manufactured by Texas Instruments. It has up to 32GB onboard storage capacity and 1GB of memory.

The device also has a 2 megapixel front facing webcam and a 5 megapixel camera at the back. The touchscreen has 1280 x 800 resolution display.
