Japanese manufacturer Toshiba has reportedly added two new models to its Regza lineup. The AT703 and AT503 tablets are based on an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system and will presumably hit the store shelves later this week, priced at about $945 and $524, respectively.
Following in the footsteps of the 2011 Regza AT700 model, the upcoming AT703 device sports a 10.1-inch touchscreen panel (touch and pen input), however, unlike its predecessor, Toshiba’s new slate PC is equipped with a Retina-like display of 2560-by-1600 pixels native WQXGA resolution. In addition, the system is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC that houses four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.9GHz and the integrated NVIDIA GeForce ULP graphics card.
In terms of connectivity, the portable device offers microUSB and miniHDMI ports complemented by built-in Wireless LAN 802.11ac, GPS and Bluetooth antennas. Other features of the 10.5 mm thick tablet include a pressure sensitive stylus (1024 levels), 2GB of internal memory, 32GB of storage (expandable via the built-in microSD card reader slot), a front-facing web camera for video calls and an 8MP rear camera. Reportedly, the 671g AT703 has a battery life of up to 9 hours.
Toshiba will also launch the AT503 Jelly Bean slab, which packs a less impressive 10.1-inch display with a maximum supported resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels. This tablet is driven by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 Quad-Core chip operating at a frequency of 1.2GHz.
Beneath the multitouch screen, the mobile system features 1GB of RAM, a microUSB port, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, and a battery that apparently lasts for around 11.5 hours. The Regza AT503 sports two integrated cameras (3MP and 1.2MP) and weighs 600g.
