Toshiba has launched a new tablet in Japan that sports decent specs, which explains its not too indecent price tag. Dubbed Regza AT501, the tablet does look a lot like the AT500 that the company had launched last year. Build around a 1.3 Ghz Tegra 3 quad core chip and a 1 GB RAM, the new AT501 sports a 10.1 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display and runs Android Jelly Bean. The tablet has also been provided with a 3 megapixel camera at the rear, which however is a disappointment for shutterbugs considering most mainstream tablets offer 8 megapixel webcams.
This apart, the tablet is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled and offers 10 hours of battery life. The tablet is slated to go on sale in Japan from 15th Feb for 40,000 Yen. That translates to a quite affordable $425, though it’s hard to believe why anyone would opt for the Toshiba tablet when there is the Nexus 10 that comes with a much better display while still priced at $400.
