CES 2012: Toshiba Excite X10, The Thinnest Tablet Ever

By: Shaylin Clark - January 9, 2012

The Consumer Electronics Show is upon us, and the world’s top tech companies are unveiling their newest and best products. One of the early entries is Toshiba’s new Excite X10 tablet. The tablet is set to go on sale in the first quarter of this year, and will come in 16 GB and 32 GB models, which will sell for $529.99 and $599.99, respectively.

The Android-based tablet has a 10.1 display (.4 inches bigger than an iPad), and is a mere 7.7 millimeters thick (compared to the 8.8 mm of the iPad 2). In addition to the amazing thinness the device, it packs in a staggering array of ports, including a Micro USB port, an SD card slot, and a Micro HDMI port, as well as a dock connector like that on the iPad. It also boasts a 2 megapixel front camera, 5 megapixel rear camera, a full gigabyte of RAM, and a 1.2 GHz processor.

Though Toshiba has not been much of a player in the tablet market yet, this has the look of a very nice device. We’ll keep you informed of release date as soon as Toshiba announces it.
