Toshiba AT100 tablet launches in the UK: £379.99, about £20 less than an iPad 2

The Toshiba AT100 Android tablet has been a long time coming, but its finally been announced; the Honeycomb 3.1 slate will be hitting British shores tomorrow the 1st of September.

Powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chip and rocking a 10.1-inch screen, the AT100 features a micro USB port along with a full sized USB port an HDMI connection as well.

Other features of the AT100 include a 5-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel front-facer, two external speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Running on Android 3.1 promises a smooth(er) Honeycomb experience out of the box, plus the ability to plug in peripherals such as USB mice, keyboards and other devices into the AT100.

There’s also full Flash support (natch) and the AT100 features something called Toshiba Resolution+ image enhancement. This promises a “premium multimedia performance” when watching movies and other video clips on the tablet. 7 hours of of multimedia playback is promised from a single charge, putting this is a similar league to the iPad 2, in terms of staying power.

We’re chasing up on price and availability for the Toshiba AT100 now; we’ll update you as soon as we have new info.

The AT100 looks to be the UK name for the Toshiba Thrive, which was priced a few dollars cheaper than the iPad 2 in the US. We’re very much hoping for a similar pricing over here. No sign or further word yet of the Toshiba Excite, leaked yesterday.

Update: The Toshiba AT100 will cost £379.99, roughly £20 less than an iPad 2, and will be available from Amazon, Tesco Online and Comet.
