On Tuesday, Toshiba will be bringing the world’s thinnest 10 inch tablet to stores. The product was announced at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in January and bas received wide praise ever since. The ultra sleek and sexy Excite 10 LE tablet is just 0.3 inches thick and weighs only 1.18 lbs. The device is 0.04 inches thinner than the 0.34 inch thick iPad. The unit will be priced at $530 for the 16GB model and $600 for the 32GB model.
The tablet runs on the Android 3.2 “Honeycomb” operating system with plans to be upgraded in Spring to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The slim device is packing some punch with a powerful Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 dual-core mobile processor along with dual-channel memory, front and rear facing cameras and 8 hours of battery life. It also features a 10.1 inch diagonal LED backlit widescreen display with scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
Carl Pinto, Vice President of Product Development for Toshiba America says, “Excite 10 LE embodies what a luxury tablet should be. We have engineered this tablet with premium materials and components and given it an elegant yet durable styling. It also has more connectivity options than any other tablet in it’s class, while fitting everything into an astonishingly thin and light design.”
