Allen Ngo,

This year’s CES has been full of tablets in every direction, but only Toshiba can take the crown as the thinnest and lightest one under the roof.

At only 1.18 pounds (0.816kg) and 0.3 inches (7.7mm) thick, this 10.1-inch tablet houses a 1280x800 resolution display protected with Gorilla Glass, front-and-rear cameras with flash, brushed magnesium alloy chassis and a number of connectivity options including microSD, micro HDMI and a microSD card reader. A dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP4430 CPU powers the Xcite 10 (also known as the AT200), which similar to the processor in the Kindle Fire, RIM Playbook and a number of high-end smartphones.

According to Toshiba, the UI will be quite close to stock Android with little bloatware apps, which should definitely satisfy users who are especially annoyed of pre-installed software.

The Xcite 10 will launch before the end of this quarter for $529 and $599 for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively. Although the device will initially ship with Honeycomb, an OTA update to ICS is expected later this year. Check out the video below for a quick preview of the file manager and media player.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
