    A new tablet just passed through the FCC, and you could be forgiven if you mistook it for a laptop at first glance. The Toshiba Excite 13.3 inch tablet has a display that is reminiscent of some laptops. The tablet will start selling in the U.S. in June for $650 dollars and up. Here's a spec recap on case you missed previous announcements:
    • NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 32GB to 64GB of storage
    • Google Android 4.0
    • 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
    • Full-sized USB ports, an HDMI port, and a full-sized SD card slot
    • Tablet measures about 0.4 inches thick, and weighs 2.2 pounds
    While Toshiba has only announced plans to sell a 32GB model (for $649.99) and 64GB model (for $749.99), FCC documents show that there could be a 16GB version as well. How many of you guys could see yourselves using a tablet this big?

    Is this running honeycomb or ice cream sandwich?

    The fourth bullet point above states "Google Android 4.0", so it looks like ICS comes preloaded.

    The only thing that intrigues me about this tablet is full sized SD cards and full sized USBs

    I am all for bigger tablets.
    I think this is about the biggest they should get. Any bigger and they just aren't a convenience any more.
