Toshiba Unveils 7.7, 10 and 13.3-inch Tablets
The Android tablet space is getting more crowded with Toshiba's latest trio of tablets, the Excite 7.7, Excite 10 and Excite 13.
According to Android Community, all three tablets will be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processors. The Excite 10 will go on sale next month, followed by the two other models in June. All three models are Wi-Fi only.
The Excite 7.7 (above) has a 7.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It is equipped with 1GB RAM, a 5-megapixel rear and a 2-megapixel front camera, a microUSB port and a microSD card slot.
It weighs approximately 382g and measures just 7.6mm thin. The Excite 7.7 is priced at US$499.99 for the 16GB model and US$579.99 for the 32GB variant. For now, Toshiba Excite 7.7's only competitor is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.
If you have seen the Toshiba Excite X10, the Excite 10 shouldn't be much of a surprise as both tablets look quite similar. Weighing approximately 598g, the Excite 10 has almost identical specs and features as the Excite 7.7, with the addition of a full-sized SD card slot and a microHDMI port.
It is said to boast a battery life of 10 hours, which puts it in the same league as the Apple's new iPad. The Excite 10 is available in three models: 16GB (US$449.99), 32GB (US$529.99) and 64GB (US$649.99).
Probably the first 13.3-inch tablet, the Toshiba Excite 13 comes with a 13.3-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. Physically, the Excite 13 is quite a bulky device at approximately 998g and measures 10.1mm thick.
Sporting a similar set of specs, ports and features as the Excite 10, the 13.3-inch tablet is armed with four SRS-certified speakers and is bundled with a free tablet stand. The Excite 13 is the most expensive of the trio, with prices starting from US$649.99 for the 32GB model and US$749.99 for the 64GB model.
We first saw these tablets as prototypes at CES 2012 along with an underwater tablet. With four tablets in its product portfolio, Toshiba appears to be in good stead to compete with the other Android vendors for a share of the lucrative tablet market.
