We’re here at the show and just caught this quick hit: Toshiba’s tablet will be the thinnest yet at just 7.7 mm thick. It weighs in at just 558 grams (1.2 pounds) and also bests Samsung with HDMI-out, microSD expansion, and a 5-megapixel camera while promising up to 8 hours of video entertainment in a single shot.
Our playing around with it yielded a few crashes so that Q4 European release makes some sense. Also 8 hours of battery is a big stretch since the much bigger Thrive isn’t hitting 8 hours and this battery is much much smaller.
Still, though, give Toshiba credit. They’ve got the thinnest tablet (almost) on the market…at the moment.
