toshiba-excite-x10-tablet-11

While at CES 2012 I saw a ton of new Tablets and phones running Android one of my favorite things I saw was the Toshiba  Excite 10.1. The reason I fell in love with it was the design, it feels absolutely perfect to me it’s defiantly the best feeling hardware a tablet has ever had. The straight edge makes the thinness of the device really stand out at only 0.3 inches thick. The Toshiba Excite X10 is powered by TI OMAP 4420 dual core processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz equipped with 1 GB of RAM. The screens resolution is 1280 x 800…

We were able to get some time with the newer version of the Transformer Prime 700, which features the higher pixel resolution 1920×1200, and better GPS then the original Transformer Prime. Running on a Quad-Core Tegra 3 processor, it’s one arguably one of the best tablets ever made, and is certainly an awesome device. We also got the chance to play with the keyboard dock, which turns the Transformer Prime into a netbook on steroids, ala touch screen goodness. Check out the hands-on Video and pictures we have below and let us know what you think about it. Personally, I…

Fusion Garage’s latest release, the Grid 10 is an Android tablet is a rather unique Android tablet. This is mostly because it technically isn’t an Android tablet. Using a new operating system called Grid OS, which is based on the Android kernel, its main feature is that its basic operations are still Android-based, but with a different graphical user interface. This lets it run Android apps while delivering a completely different user experience. The Grid 10 has some fairly basic specs for a 10.1-inch tablet. Running on an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip backed by 512MB of memory, it only has one 1.3MP…
