Toshiba_lt170

When I think of Toshiba, I don't really think of 7-inch Android tablets. Sure, the manufacturer has released a device of that size before; but for the most part, the company's been relatively conservative with its releases. 

Today, however, we've been graced with the introduction of another one. Say hello to the Toshiba LT170, a 7-inch budget tablet that runs Android 2.3. That bit of information should tell you already that the tablet's a low-end device, but it gets better worse. Toshiba threw in a 1GHz Cortex processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600. 

Still, the LT170 has a price point of €299. It's currently only available for preorder from a few Italian resellers, so I'll give you the current conversion to US dollars: $394.38. If you were to buy one, you'd also have to factor in importing costs, which would vary depending on where you buy it from and which shipping option you choose. 

If you aren't interested in importing it, would you be interested in purchasing a US version if one ever came?
