At 8.9mm thick the Toshiba AT300 feels solid and well-balanced. At 593g it's roughly the same weight as an iPad 2, but is considerably heavier than a 7in tablet such as the Nexus 7.

From the front, it looks like any other generic 10in tablet as there's no Toshiba branding. In fact, apart from the front-facing camera, it's devoid of features.

Power is delivered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 T30SL quad-core processor, running at 1.3GHz. It's paired with 1GB of DDR3 RAM. Naturally, this combination makes for a slick experience when swiping between Android home screens, and also when playing HD video or the latest 3D games, too.

The screen has 1280 x 800 pixels, which puts it on a par with the highest-resolution Android tablets. It's no match for the iPad's retina screen of course, but let's not forget it's considerably cheaper.

The front-facing 2Mp camera provides adequate quality for video chats, but you wouldn't want to use it for any serious photography.
