Toshiba unveils new Excite tablets with Tegra 3

Toshiba spices up the tablet competition with the release of their new Excite lineup, the Toshiba Excite 7.7, the Toshiba Excite 10, and the monstrous 13-incher Toshiba Excite 13.

All three tablets carry the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset, runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 1GB of RAM, GeForce graphics, equipped with a 5 megapixel camera on the back and 2 megapixel camera on the front, WiFi and Bluetooth.

First up is the Excite 7.7, a 7-inch tablet which is made for mobile gamers and movie lovers on the go. It is Toshiba’s first tablet to feature a SuperAMOLED display at 1280×800 resolution, includes a MicroUSB port and a Micro SD card slot for storage expansion, and weighs 13.4 ounces at 0.3 inches.
The Excite 7.7 will be available on June 10, 2012 at the price of $500 for the 16GB model and $580 for the 32GB.

Next is the Excite 10. A 10-inch high definition tablet topped with Gorilla Glass. It has a LED Backlit display at 1280×800 resolution with support for 10-finger multi-touch. It includes a MicroUSB port, Micro HDMI and full-sized SD card slot. The tablet weighs 1.32 pounds at 0.35 inches and boasts 10 hours of battery life and seven days of standby.

The Excite 10 will be available on May 6, 2012 at the price of $450 for the 16GB model, $530 for the 32GB and $650 for the 64GB model.


Last, but certainly not the tiniest, is the huge-screened Excite 13 (the world’s largest tablet so far) which carries a LED Backlit 13.3 inch display with 16:9 aspect ratio and 1600×900 resolution. Obviously designed for watching HD movies and videos, the tablet also features a four-speaker sound system with enhancements from Toshiba and SRS Labs. Like the Excite 10, it also includes a MicroUSB port, Micro HDMI and full-sized SD card slot. Its battery life is expected to last 13 hours and seven days of standby. This massive tablet weighs 2.2 pounds at 0.4 inches.

  3. Marc says:

    I Dont think that 13″ Toshiba Tablet Would not be a great idea…But then again i could be wrong. Its just that a Tablet is not to meant to be that big (AGAIN “I” Could be wrong) a Tablet means Something that is Portable Something thats Light Something thats not to big and Not to small…. But this Could be Really Useful In some stuff and Holding it to take a picture would be even more “AWKWARDDDD” than the iPad 2 when someone is Using to take a Picture (BTW they should have increased the Camera Specs to take full potential of the 13″Screen) But as I Said i could be wrong. It’s not my Job to judge it when i havent even tried out the device :) But i also carry Android (ICS, Gingerbread, Honeycomb) Devices and iOS Devices so I know my Things about this :)

    How I wish they could have made an Android PMP between 3.7″ to 4.3″ that will have support for the OS unlike the Samsung Galaxy Players which only has the Gingerbread so that iPod Touch could get a real rival .

  6. Ryuji says:

    I don’t get it, why is it that the 7″er is much pricier than that of 10″er?

  7. JmBalicano says:

    The first Thrive was a design fail, aesthetically. These look much better, although I’m not too sure many people would want a 13″ tab.

  8. Yaj says:

    We’ve been bombarded with a lot of tablet’s but the craziest tablet is non other than 13in tablet. Some think it’s a goner but who knows, some of the gadget people might need a tablet that we could say ” the father of all tablet” and i ‘m not surprised if we got a 15in tablet w/ laptop capability that can do all, the name will be ” laptab”.

  10. Any suggestion where to buy a micro HDMI connector/cable? Gone over Megamall pero negative. Thanks

  11. Jvsky says:

    ahh cool. should get one of this soon ^^

    Personally, im attracted to the 13′ tablet. It would be great for presentations and demos. Rather than having to carry around a much bulkier laptop. The smaller tablets will do for just personal use but for other uses like business or maybe teaching it would be great to have a big screen.

  13. Geoffrey says:

    I am an Interior Designer and I am considering the 13inch. Since Clients need to see the presentation really well and an iPad is too small for that, using a laptop is too bulky .
