Toshiba's Excite 10 is an Android 4.0 tablet featuring a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor. Available with either 16, 32, or 64GB of storage, the Excite 10 also features 1GB of memory and both front and rear cameras.

Description

The Excite 7.7 tablet by Toshiba runs Android 4.0 and is powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor. Available with either 16 or 32GB of storage, the Excite 7.7 also features 1GB of memory and both front and rear cameras.

Unveiled at IFA 2011 as the AT200, Toshiba's Excite 10 LE, in terms of thickness, is the antithesis of Toshiba's earlier 10-inch Thrive tablet. The Excite is a 10.1-inch tablet running Android Honeycomb on a 1280 x 800-resolution display and powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4 processor paired with 1GB of RAM. It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, GPS, and a Micro HDMI port for streaming HD media to an HDTV or monitor.

Successor to the popular iPad 2 and furthering Apple's push towards post-PC computing, the "new iPad" features a Retina display at the same 9.7-inch size as its predecessor but with doubled pixel density. The rear camera shares the optics system of the iPhone 4S for better photo quality. Optional 4G LTE is another addition, with theoretical download speeds of up to 72Mbps.
