Toshiba REGZA AT501 Android 4.1 tablet goes on sale in Japan
Toshiba has reportedly added a new tablet, dubbed AT501, to its REGZA Series. It will be available to customers in Japan starting today (15 February) for 40,000 JPY, which amounts to roughly $432.
Based on Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the mobile device comes with a 10.1-inch capacitive In-Plane Switching multi-touch display of 1280-by-800 pixels maximum supported resolution. Moreover, the new REGZA slate PC is apparently driven by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 System-On-Chip that features a 4-PLUS-1 architecture (four physical cores plus a fifth battery saving core) clocked at 1.3GHz and the GeForce ULP graphics card.
Toshiba claims in a press release that the 10.5mm (about 0.41-inch) thick AT501 houses 1GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage. In addition to the Quad-Core NVIDIA chip and HD IPS panel, the Jelly Bean tablet sports Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 radios, two integrated cameras (1.2MP front-facing web camera and a 3MP rear shooter), microSD/SDHC/SDXC card reader slot, GPS receiver and one microUSB 2.0 port.
The REGZA AT501 weighs 625g (≈22.05 oz.) with the built-in battery that lasts for up to 8 hours on a single charge and can reportedly be synced with compatible Toshiba REGZA TVs.
There is still no word on US/European availability.
