We have some news from Toshiba this morning. The company officially launched their new Excite line of Android Tablets. Toshiba has taken things to a new level with the Excite, by heavily stepping up the specs, reducing the size and weight, and adding a unique new size category, the monstrous 13-inch tablet! For reference, there are several specs that all of these tablets have in common. Here is a list of all the specs that they all have, and then below that we have each individual tab with their differences:
  • Fixed Back Covers with an Aluminum Surface and styling
  • Dual Cameras - 2MP for the front and 5MP for the back that can handle 1080p HD video
  • Tegra 3
  • 1GB DDR3 Ram
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Stereo Speakers with SRS Surround
  • WiFi
  • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich - Unskinned & Stock from Google
