Toshiba’s 7.7mm-thick AT200 tablet goes on sale in the UK, still runs Honeycomb

Move over, Galaxy Tab 10.1, there’s a new super-slim tablet in town. Toshiba’s AT200 tablet (which will land in the U.S. as the Excite X10) has gone on sale in the UK. Surprisingly, Toshiba launched the tablet via Carphone Warehouse without really letting the world know about it. Who knows, maybe a major marketing campaign is under way. Pricing on the AT200 starts at £399 for the 16GB model.

The Toshiba A200 is now the world’s thinnest 10.1-inch tablet, measuring at just 7.7mm thick. The tablet features a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 LED-backlit display, a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor, 1GB of RAM, front and rear-facing cameras at 1.3 and 5-megapixels, respectively. Unfortunately, the tablet won’t be running Google’s Android 4.0 OS. Instead, it will run the slightly outdated Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

The tablet comes in both 16GB and 32GB models. The 16GB model will set you back £399 (roughly $630 if you’re really thinking about importing); the 32GB model will set you back £449 (roughly $710). They’re both available online at Carphone Warehouse’s site and should be available in stores on February 15.

If you’re interested in this tablet and are in the U.S., it will soon be launching stateside as the Excite X10. We got a chance to play around with it earlier this year during CES 2012.
