You gotta hand it to Toshiba. Any other company would have chosen to steer clear of the Apple hype-machine, set in overdrive by the upcoming launch of the iPad3. But not Toshiba. The Japanese will launch their razor-thin Excite 10 LE (formerly known as the X10) in the United States, on March 6, the day before Apple’s big iPad event. Either they don’t care about it, or, they do it on purpose, just to mess with Apple. Either way, bravos for Toshiba.
The Excite 10 LE is a 10.1-incher that we first saw last year in fall, but, at the moment, it was known by its codename, AT200. Since then, the tablet was briefly called the Toshiba Excite X10, which was the moniker it bore [...]
Look out Samsung – there’s a new, thin, and sexy tablet in town, looking to snatch your crown in the ever-crowded Android tablet market. We’re talking about the forthcoming Toshiba Excite tablets.

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 pixels and 10.1 inches in size. It was running with Android 3.2 Honeycomb when I got to take a look at it but I was told Toshiba is hoping to [...]
It seems like the first day of CES 2012 was dominated by the thinnest everything. While there was the fight between Motorola Droid 4 and Huawei Ascend P1 S for the title of the thinnest Android smartphone, it was the former who claimed the spot. In the Android tablet category however, there was no competition to Tohsiba’s claim as the ‘thinnest and lightest tablet’ on their Excite X10.
True enough, the tablet really does feel light and thin—having a thickness of 0.3 inch and a weight of 1.18 lbs., it truly gives itself a new definition in the tablet sector. Plus, the tablet is already running on the latest Google OS, Ice Cream [...]
