While you can’t exactly call Toshiba a player to be reckoned with in the tablet war (then again, who is, besides Apple?), the Excite trio seems to have drawn some attention to the Japan-based manufacturer….
Earlier today, we reported that Toshiba has already started rolling out the much-awaited Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade to users of the Excite 7.7 tablet. But what about the Toshiba Excite 10? Is Toshiba really just going to leave users of this 10-inch tablet in the dust?
Thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case. Users of the Excite 10 have also reported receiving the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade on their own tablets as part of an ongoing software upgrade rollout that started earlier this week. Apparently, Toshiba first released Jelly Bean for the Excite 10 in some parts of the U.S. over the weekend, with availability coming to other regions as the days went by. And the upgrade rollout is still ongoing. It is expected to go on for about 3-4 weeks.
The Jelly Bean upgrade brings a number of new features, UI enhancements, and speed improvements that are bound to make the Excite 10 a much better tablet all around. If you own and use this particular Toshiba tablet yourself, simply check your device's Settings menu for information on the availability of the upgrade software in your area. That shouldn't really be necessary though, as Toshiba is continuously rolling out the new software to users automatically.
