Last night, Toshiba announced a bunch of new tablets running Ice Cream Sandwich, and they come in varying sizes to cater to the needs of various customers. The smallest, the Excite 7.7, comes with a 7.7-inch AMOLED display with a 1280*800 resolution and has a slim waistline of 0.3-inches. Following the Excite 7.7 is the new Excite 10.1 that comes with a…as you guessed it…a 10.1-inch display with a 1280*800 resolution. The 10.1-inch model is a bit thicker than the Excite 7.7 though (0.35 vs. 0.3).
Last but not the least, and definitely not the smallest or slimmest is the Excite 13. The tablet comes with a whopping 13.3-inch display with a 1600*900 resolution, along with four inbuilt speakers to provide users with that perfect movie watching experience. It is also the thickest tablet in the Excite line-up with a 0.4-inch waistline.
All the three tablets pack in a NVidia quad-core Tegra 3 processor, a GB of RAM, a sturdy aluminum shell, Corning’s Gorilla glass, a 5MP camera in the back, a 2MP shooter in the front, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a bunch of sensors, and sound enhancements from Toshiba and SRS Labs. Toshiba states that the Excite 13 has a whopping 13 hours of battery life, while the Excite 10 will last around 10 hours on a single charge.
All the three tablets also run on stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, and pack in a micro-USB port, microHDMI port and a microSD card slot. The Excite 10 will hit the retail stores first early next month, with the 16GB model costing $449.99, and the 32GB and 64GB model costing $529.99 and $649.99 respectively.
The Excite 10 will be followed by the Excite 7.7, which will hit the retail stores a couple of months (early June) from now for $499.99 for the 16GB variant. The 32GB model will cost $579.99. The Excite 13 will be available to the consumers sometime in early June for $649.99 for the 32GB model, while the 64GB model will set users back by another $100.
