The annual Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) trade show in Japan this year kicked off with a new tablet from Toshiba.

Called the Regza AT700, the 10.1-inch tablet will be marketed as “the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet,” says Pocket-Lint. At just 558g (1.23 pounds) and 7.7mm (0.3 inches) thick, the Toshiba tablet will be almost 50 grams lighter and 1.1mm thinner than the iPad 2.

Additional details on the tablet are nil, but the tablet is rumored to include a dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP4430 system-on-chip, similar to the RIM PlayBook. Front-and-rear cameras are expected as well, along with a 1280x800 resolution screen, Bluetooth, card reader, micro-USB, micro-HDMI and Android Honeycomb 3.2. In fact, specs are quite similar to the Regza AT200 shown at the IFA earlier last month.

For comparison, the Regza AT300 announced in April includes a Tegra 2 APU and weighs 765g (1.68 pounds).

Unfortunately, launch dates are currently for Japan only and pricing is still unknown. We expect the tablet to make a splash when it finally does release due to its extreme thinness and portability.
