Toshiba AT300 review

Can Toshiba's new 10.1-inch tablet brighten our day?

The camera UI on the Toshiba AT300 is native Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and there are very few features afforded to you.

On the back is a 5 megapixel snapper, complete with flash, that takes reasonable pictures - if somewhat pixelated and noisy. If you've not got a smartphone or a compact camera on your person and something happens that simply must be captured, it'll do the job, but we wouldn't recommend relying on it.

The same goes for video. Although it records in 720p HD, the video quality is pretty lousy, with the sensor struggling to cope with even the slightest movement.

There is a 2 megapixel camera up front, which does the job when it comes to video conferencing or face-unlocking.

The change in contrast between bright sunlight and shadow proved tricky for the Toshiba AT300.

Even with the sunset option selected, the pictures were pretty much unusable.

Blurring was a problem, with the tablet unable to cope with multiple action points.

With no flash and little natural light, inside images were grainy.

Rather than lighting an area, the flash was very reflective on surfaces.
