    We have some news from Toshiba this morning. The company officially launched their new Excite line of Android Tablets. Toshiba has taken things to a new level with the Excite, by heavily stepping up the specs, reducing the size and weight, and adding a unique new size category, the monstrous 13-inch tablet! For reference, there are several specs that all of these tablets have in common. Here is a list of all the specs that they all have, and then below that we have each individual tab with their differences:
    • Fixed Back Covers with an Aluminum Surface and styling
    • Dual Cameras - 2MP for the front and 5MP for the back that can handle 1080p HD video
    • Tegra 3
    • 1GB DDR3 Ram
    • Gorilla Glass
    • Stereo Speakers with SRS Surround
    • WiFi
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich - Unskinned & Stock from Google
    • BioManager Utility to improve battery life
    Here's a breakdown of the different specs of each individual new Toshiba Excite Tablet:

    That's a pretty impressive lineup of high-end devices with some high-end prices. The 13-inch is an interesting concept in the tablet arena. Share your thoughts on Toshiba's new Excite series.

    i think the bolded is supposed to say 13.3-inch. not being a grammar nazi! just pointing it out since i had to read it like 4 times before i realized it was wrong.

    if its not wrong that is a TINY tablet and wicked expensive.

    That's quite a shame on the 7-inch tablet. The ONLY thing "generic consumers John and Mary" will see is...

    7-inch Fire, Nook, and "Nexus" = $200

    7-inch Excite = $500

    Come on guys, for the 38th time: we should really put out our shingle and offer not only our skills as technical consultants, but in this case also as marketing consulants. I mean wow, how dumb a move is $500 (even $400...$300...)? Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    That pic with the red backround is the tablet that they said was the leaked render of the nexus tablet.
