It runs on Android 3.2 (Honeycomb), and offers micro-USB, micro-SD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. It also has a micro-HDMI port (which allows it to stream HD content to a separate television set), 5- and 2-megapixel rear and front HD cameras, a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 CPU, and 1 GB of RAM. Besides its thin profile, however, one of the distinguishing features of the AT200 is its audio playback capabilities. Read More

The accidental loss or deliberate theft of notebooks with drives full of sensitive information is not just the cause of red faces (or worse) for government or military officials around the globe, as the world of business has also been touched by such security breaches. Self-encrypting drives have done much to help lock down important files, but Toshiba has gone a step further by developing a technology that securely erases data rather than let it fall into unauthorized hands. Originally announced last August, Wipe Technology has now been incorporated into a new range of self-encrypting hard drives which will go into mass production at the end of June. Read More

By - March 25, 2011 3 Pictures
Walk into any graphic or game design studio, trading center or media authoring/editing business and you'll more than likely see some sort of multi-display workstation setup. I too have found that expanding display real estate over more than one screen can be very useful, but when thinking about such things for my notebook, I'm kind of limited to integrated screen-and-a-half or full dual-screen options. Happily, Toshiba's Digital Products Division is now offering another solution – a 14-inch Mobile Monitor that gets its power and video feed from one USB cable. Read More
