Toshiba debuts pair of new Android tablets

Toshiba today announced two new Android tablets in the Excite series, a portable 7.7-inch model and coffee-table sized 13-inch behemoth.  Both feature the familiar thin design with aluminum alloy body and will arrive in June with two storage capacities.  Each offers similar hardware, including scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass displays, a quad-core Tegra 3 processors, and run Ice Cream Sandwich.


The Excite 7.7 falls right in line with your more traditional travel tablet and features a thin, lightweight design of 0.3 inches and 13.4 ounces.  Hardware details include 1GB memory, a micro USB port, and a Micro SD slot, and your other Android requisites.  Look for the Excite 7.7 to go on sale June 10, 2012 in $499 (16 GB) or $579 (32 GB) flavors.


On the other end of portability we have the Excite 13, with a 1600 x 900 resolution (16:9 aspect ratio) display.  At 2.2 pounds and 0.4 inches thin, it’s technically still portable however Toshiba suggests this one for in the home.  As they see it, the Excite 13 is perfect for shared movie watching, multiplayer gaming, and reading. Hardware here also includes SRS Labs four-speaker sound system, Micro HDMI, Micro USB, SD card slot, and up to 13 hours of battery.

The Excite 13 will also go on sale June 10, 2012 with $649 (16GB) or $749 (32 GB) options.

In addition to announcing these new tablets, Toshiba has also given us pricing for their recently announced Excite 10. Like the others, there are two models to choose from in $449.99 (16GB) or $529.99 (32GB) devices.  Look for the Excite 10 to arrive in but a few weeks time as it streets on May 6th.
