It seems there is a market for everyone, including those that believe 10.1-inch tablets are just too tiny. Toshiba has been working on the AT330, which is a 13-inch monster. But how big is that, exactly?
We know 13 inches sounds big, but it is hard to tell if it is too big or not just by looking at images and videos. And there are no other Android tablets out there of this size. So we do not exactly know how a 13-inch device must look and feel in the hands.
The guys from Techblog have a few images for us, better giving us an idea of what this titan is like. In the images, the Toshiba AT330 is compared to a Toshiba Excite 10 LE and a Toshiba AT270. These are sized at 10-inches and 7-inches, relatively.
Most of us have felt a 10-inch device, as well as a 7-inch one. So we are familiar with the feel of said screen sizes. But as we can see here, a 10-inch tablet simply looks like a baby compared to a 13-inch tablet. And many of us believe that 10 inches is already too much. But Samsung is also aiming the larger tablet market with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6.
Of course, some people might love it, as it also offers TV capabilities. Not to mention its awesome specs, which include a Tegra 3 processor, Android 4.0.1, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13-inch 1920×1200 display, a 5 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front shooter.
As for me, it is simply too large. I prefer 7 to 9-inch tablets. And would not know what to do with such a large Android device. But what do you guys think? Would you consider buying a 13-inch tablet?
