Here is some exciting news from the Tohsiba camp! The company’s latest tablet, the Toshiba Excite 10, is now shipping with the base model priced at a quite reasonable $450. There are two other versions with 32 and 64 GB, priced at $530 and $640 respectively.
The Excite line of tablets will offer the latest Google Android 4.0 ICS OS and have powerful processing power with the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core setup. The base model boasts of specs such as a 1 GB RAM along with 16 GB of storage space. Further space can be added via full sized micro SD card,s while a 2 and 5 megapixel camera adorn the front and rear of the tablet. The 10.1 inch display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels with a layer of Corning Gorilla glass for added strength. As for battery life, Toshiba is claiming it to be no less than 10 hours, which isn’t bad. A miniUSB and microHDMI ports complete the connectivity options for the Excite 10 tablet.
The Excite range of tablets is quite stunning with the aluminum case adding to the style quotient. The tablet is also a delight to hold and operate with a lightweight frame (1.3 pounds) and a super thin profile (0.4 inches thick), which is a far cry from the thick and rubberized Thrive range of tablets that Toshiba promoted.
Other tablet devices forthcoming from Toshiba include a 7.7 inch and a massive 13.3 inch device, which are expected to debut next month.
