Toshiba REGZA AT700 just got lighter with 23g, after CES 2012 ended.
Toshiba REGZA AT700 (above) just got lighter with 23 grams, after the company introduced its new Excite X10 tablet at CES 2012, in Las Vegas.
A week ago, when Toshiba showed its new Excite X10 tablet at CES (for the US market), we thought that the company is exhibiting some radically hardware-upgraded model of its AT200 (which was introduced for the European market) or REGZA AT700 tablet (the Japanese version). At that time the Toshiba AT200 (in September, 2011) and the REGZA AT700 (in October, 2011) were weighing exactly 558g (below - screenshot of REGZA AT700, October, 2011).
