Toshiba Excite 10 LE

You want thin, yet fully featured? Then you need to look at the Toshiba Excite 10 LE. It has decent, but not breath-taking specs -- OMAP dual-core 4430 at 1.2GHz, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 10.1-inch IPS display at 1280x800, Android 4.0 and all the ports and slots you'd even want. The screen on the Excite is pretty nice too. I noticed great viewing angles, and it's really nice and bright. Toss in a magnesium back with a modern textured feel, and it's sounding like a nice piece of gear. 

But all that pales when you realize how oh-my-God thin it is. 7.7mm to be exact, or one-tenth of a millimeter thinner that the HTC One S. It's amazing. In fact, when you first pick it up you do a double-take, simply because it is so thin and light (535 grams). It's beyond impressive. 

I'm putting this one through the paces. I use the heck out of a tablet, even though for the longest time I didn't think I would. If it can be broken, I will break it. If it can be crashed, I will crash it. If it performs great, I will love it. Keep an eye out for a full review, but I wanted everyone to have a quick look at the new sexy. Hit the break for a video and some pictures.

Toshiba Excite 10 LE initial walkthrough


Jerry, long time follower 3rd time responder!

How does this Tosh compare to the Moto XOOM Family Edition (10.1),spec and build wise?
Recently purch a refurb XOOM FE ($297)and I am really liking it!

Does it charge over microUSB or does it use that huge and unsightly Toshiba AC charger with a proprietary connector?

That proprietary connector probably has a USB A on the other end anyway. You will just be sentenced to carrying a second cable all around with you for this one.
