    Toshiba has pre-announced plans to release two new tablets at CES this year. One is going to be the exact opposite of their previous outing. The Toshiba Thrive is super-packed with tons of features, but those extra features came at the price of making the tablet notoriously thick. One of the new Toshiba tablets debuting at CES this year will go the opposite route. We have shared a few rumor articles previously about the Excite AT200, but now we have a few more interesting details about the device. Here's a breakdown:
    • Initially Honeycomb OS
    • Ultra-thin 7.7mm thick
    • 10.1-inch 1280×800 resolution display
    • 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4430 processor
    • 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras
    • micro HDMI out and either 16GB or 32GB storage options
    Supposedly, they will also be unveiling a second tablet that is even more mysterious. This other tab will reportedly be waterproof (or water-resistant), will have a 7-inch OLED display, and use a Qualcomm processor. Above is a screenshot of the back of the super-thin Excite. Intriguing...

    All technology should be waterproof in this day and age!

    I'm pretty much a fan of Toshiba. Their laptops are affordable and quite well built. I'll definitely be watching for these tabs.

    ALL? That means TVs, home and car stereos, printer, desktop computers, and I could go on and on.

    And why should people pay for ALL technology to be waterproof when the chances of most technology getting wet are slim and that is what insurance is for.

    Because insurance is pricey and it would be awesome? I can't afford insurance :p

    Must... resist... tsunami joke....

    Seriously, though, why would they all need things to be waterproof? If you want a waterproof phone, get one, but don't make other people pay for features they don't want just because you like them.
