Toshiba showed off its AT200 tablet computer today at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.

The Android-based tablet shows that big companies are still challenging Apple’s iPad in the emerging tablet market, even though Hewlett-Packard threw in the towel on its WebOS tablet after only a short time on the market.

Toshiba’s thin tablet will feature a range of ports that could make the device more usable than the port-deprived iPad 2. The AT200 is on the U.S. product roadmap, according to a Toshiba spokesperson. But details on pricing, exact specs, and availability aren’t ready yet.

The device has a 10.1-inch screen and runs the Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet operating system. It is 7.7 millimeters thick and has a display resolution of 1280 x 800. It uses a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor at 1.2 gigahertz and has 1 gigabyte of RAM.

The new tablet will coexist with Toshiba’s current Thrive tablet.
