Toshiba Excite

Toshiba's AT200 'Excite' tablet, which we recently got to see at CES, has today gone on sale in the UK. The tablet, which boasts a slimline 7.7mm profile, is available at the Carphone Warehouse as part of an exclusivity deal, with prices starting at £399 (~$630) for the 16GB version. If you're after the 32GB model, you'll have to part with another £150. Both versions lack 3G radios, so you'll be limited to Wifi only for data connectivity.

Inside the AT200 you'll find an ample, but not outstanding dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 1280x800 display. It's powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb, which Toshiba seems to have left more or less untouched. And as we've come to expect from Toshiba tablets, you also get an impressive range of connectivity options, including an array of microSD, mini-USB and mini-HDMI ports.

The AT200 looks like an impressive product, but we're still a little jarred by that £400 price point, especially at a time when the next-generation of tablets is looming on the horizon. If you're tempted, though, you can check out Carphone's product listing at the source link, and take a look at our hands-on video while you're at it.
