The consumer electronics market is probably one of the most stirred up and unpredictable of them all, and it’s been like that for some time now. I guess it’s how things work and how the technology evolves, but sometimes you start wondering whether or not the manufacturers emphasize greatly on the word “consumer” instead of evolution, because lately a device launched somewhere between one or two months ago is starting to smell of “old” even if spec-wise the device in question is not that far behind compared to a device launched in the present.
Nevertheless, I can’t really complain, else I’d be out of a job so without further ado I present to you Toshiba’s new trio of Android tablets, the Toshiba Excite 7.7, Excite 10.1 (not to be confused with the “recently” launched Toshiba Excite 10LE) and the Toshiba Excite 13.3. Join us after the break and we’ll tell you what you need to know about each and every one of them.
Toshiba Excite 7.7 – Release Date, Specs, Price.
As its nameplate suggests, the Toshiba Excite 7.7 is the smallest of the three tablets, sporting a 7.7 inch AMOLED display that supports resolutions of 1280×800 pixels, Gorilla Glass, weighs 13.4 ounces and is 0.3 inches thick.
The Excite 7.7 packs 1 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of built-in storage, it comes with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 5 MP camera on the back panel and an additional 2 MP camera at the front. Last but not least it comes with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
The Toshiba Excite 7.7 is expected to hit the market in June at the price of $499.99 for the 16GB model, and $579 for the beefier 32 GB version.
Toshiba Excite 10– Release Date, Specs, Price.
Evidently the Toshiba Excite 10.1 is the mid-sized tablet and comes with a 10.1 inch LED display supporting a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, Gorila Glass, Ice Cream Sandwich, weighs 1.32 pounds and is 0.35 inches thick, it comes with the same “5 MP on the back 2 on the front” camera configuration, sports 1 GB of ram, 16/32 GB of internal storage and evidently the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU.
The device is set for a May release at the price of $449 for the 16GB version, and $529 for the 32GB one.
Toshiba Excite 13 – Release Date, Specs, Price.
The Toshiba Excite 13 is probably the most interesting tablet of the three, simply because of its sheer size. It packs a 13.3 inch AutoBrite LED display with a resolution of 1600×900 pixels, Gorilla Glass, weighs 2.2 pounds and is 0.4 inches thick. It obviously packs an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, comes with the same amount of RAM as its smaller siblings and offers 32/64 GB of internal storage. Just as with the other two, the Excite 13 comes with Ice Cream Sandwich straight out of the box and offers a 5 MP camera on the back and a 2 MP camera on the front.
The Toshiba Excite 13 is expected to hit the market in June at the price of $649 and $749 for the 32 and 64 GB version respectively.
That’s about it folks. A new family of tablets approaches the market to join the battle for supremacy. We’ll keep you up to date as soon as we find out more. Until then, feel free to share your opinions and let us know which one of the three upcoming Excite tablets would you choose and why.
