Toshiba to Unveil “Excite” Tablet at IFA This Week (Rumor)

Toshiba is expected to unveil a new Android-powered tablet this week at IFA, according to a number of recent reports. NoteBookItalia uncovered (translate) a pair of images of the Honeycomb tablet although they were not able to pull any specifications. Looking at the pictures we can surmise a much sexier brushed metal design and a number of ports that include microSD, microUSB, and microHDMI output.

AndroidPolice was digging around the USPTO website where they discovered a potential name for the tablet, the Excite.  Considering Toshiba has also registered a number of domains related to the term excite, we’re inclined to believe the rumors.

If there was one thing we could say about the Toshiba Thrive it’s that the form factor is likely going to stand in the way of mass adoption.  For all the great stuff going on under the hood, it’s overshadowed by a clunky design.
