Toshiba, $539 my­


There’s no mis­tak­ing Toshiba’s small­est tablet. It is not only cargo pants pocket-sized, but it’s also thin­ner than most tablets (and some phones) and weighs a mere 350g. The AT270 is also well built, with a tex­tured metal back giv­ing it a pre­mium

feel and a bright 7.67-inch screen that can be viewed on an an­gle or up close (1280x800). The

tablet runs An­droid Ice Cream Sand­wich soft­ware

with a quad-core pro­ces­sor and 1GB RAM, and of­fers 16GB built-in stor­age plus two cam­eras

at 5 and 2-megapix­els re­spec­tively. A Mi­cro USB con­nec­tion and space for a mem­ory card also fea­ture. The AT270 should be a lit­tle snap­pier, given its hard­ware, or a lit­tle cheaper, given its Google ri­val, but this is a solid and

small con­tender.
