Toshiba tosses AT300 Android tablet into the limelight

Toshiba UK has officially announced the launch of the new Toshiba AT300 thin and lightweight Android 4.0 tablet. Toshiba says that while the tablet is beautifully thin and lightweight, it doesn't compromise on power or performance. The machine uses a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor packed inside a brushed aluminum body.

Toshiba Excite 13 spotted at the FCC

We'd already heard that Toshiba's ridiculously oversized Godzilla tablet was coming stateside eventually, but just in case you needed some confirmation, the FCC got their hands on the Excite 13 earlier today. There's no surprises here, with the possible exception of the fact that the FCC boys managed to fit the 13-inch tablet into their testing machines. The last that we heard, the Excite 13 was headed for retailers in June, so the customary stop off at the FCC is quite expected. In case your memory's a little fuzzy, the Excite 13 packs a whopping 13.3-inch screen with a 1600x900 resolution on a traditional TFT panel. NVIDIA's ever more ubiquitous Tegra 3 quad-core is aboard, as is what looks like mostly stock Ice Cream Sandwich - Huzzah! The tablet has some monster dimensions at 10.1mm thick and 2.2 pounds, and uses that bulk to cram in four SRS speakers and a capacity of 32GB or 64GB. The tablet will cost $649.99 and $749.99 repsectively when it hits retailers in June. The more pedestrian Excite 10 is scheduled to come out sometime in the next few weeks, and the smaller Excite 7.7 (with a fabulous 720p Super AMOLED display) will also hit in June. Both of the smaller tablets get a Tegra 3 processor, though they'll be considerably less expensive: the Excite 10 starts at $449.99 and the Excite 7.7 will go for $499.99.

Android Community Weekly: April 15th, 2012

Welcome once again to our weekly update on everything you need to know in the Android universe. If you've neglected your news for the last seven days, take a few minutes to consider the following - everything else is a sideshow. There's a considerable amount of hardware, software, modding and business news to cover in the Android world, so settle in. While no earth-shattering announcements were made this week, those who like big tablets and even bigger acquisitions should be well satisfied.

Toshiba Excite 10 tablet spotted at the FCC

Toshiba made a splash with a trio of new Ice Cream Sandwich tablets on Monday: the Excite 7.7, Excite 10 and Excite 13, at 7.7, 10 and a massive 13.3 inches, respectively. At the time the company announced that it was launching the (boring) 10-inch version in May, with the 7.7 and 13-inchers to follow in June. It looks like they're wasting no time in making the deadline, as Liliputing spotted the obligatory FCC ID page for the Excite 10, a necessary step for any piece of wireless consumer electronics in the US.

Toshiba unveils 7.7, 10 and 13-inch Excite tablets running ICS

Watch out, Samsung: there's a new manufacturer looking to cover all the tablet bases. Toshiba's Excite line, previously restricted to a single 10-inch model, grows by three today. The company pulled the curtain off three new entries in the line, with screens sized 7.7, 10 and a massive 13.3-inches, all of them running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with NVIDIA Tegra 3 processors. The Excite 10 goes on sale next month, with the Excite 7.7 and Excite 13 following in June.

Android Community Weekly: March 25th, 2012

With the Ides of March fully behind us, the folks at Android Community are looking forward to summer... and all the drool-worthy hardware it brings. The last week saw quite a bit of activity in that space, with new hardware being announced and leaked steadily. Of course there's plenty of movement on the software front as well, with more and more devices getting upgraded (or at lease getting the promise of an upgrade) and the first hints of Android 4.0.5, the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Toshiba AT330 prototype is 13 inches of Ice Cream Sandwich

"Ich will die große, bitte." That's "I want the big one, please," in German, and it's something you might want to learn to say if you like the looks of Toshiba's massive new tablet. The 13.3-inch AT330 is a solid 30% bigger than any mainstream tablet on the market. Yet another Toshiba prototype, it's also running Ice Cream Sandwich with a built-in TV tuner with collapsible antenna. For some reason, Toshiba thought that Germany would preferable to, say, Texas for introducing this beast to a hungry public, and TechFokus got a good look at it at on video. In addition to its size, software and media prowess, it's also running an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, matching the one found in the earlier 7.7-inch prototype. Unlike that model and the currently on-sale Excite AT200, the AT 330 employs what looks like a more contemporary plastic body accented with metal. The extra space allows the gigantic tablet to accommodate 32GB of storage and a full-sized SD card slot (not MicroSD). It's also got HDMI-out, plus a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing cam. There's no word on what kind of resolution it's got, but based on the video, it looks like a 1920x1200 LCD panel. Check it out in action below: [youtube RLyW2asc460#!] Toshiba says the AT330 is just a prototype for now, and considering the size it's hard to blame them. Of course there's nothing about a 13.3-inch screen that's inherintly wrong, it's just that up to now it's always been in a laptop form factor that's meant to rest on something else. Holding a 10-inch tablet can be tiring after a while (hence the multitude of stands out there) so it's hard to imagine how doing the same would be for something even bigger. Probably a lot like a slightly lighter version of the old tablet PCs, one would think. What say you, readers - what's the upper limit for you? [via 9to5 Google]

Toshiba 13.3 inch quad-core tablet photos revealed

While we had a blast in Spain during Mobile World Congress and even enjoyed a look at a new 7.7" Toshiba tablet with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 we never managed to see this slate. Over at Pocket-Lint they have just snapped a few photos of a brand new 13.3" prototype Tegra 3 quad-core tablet from Toshiba at a conference in the UK. It's amazingly thin and looks quite beautiful. I'm just not sure what I'd use something that large for.

Toshiba’s Excite gets a new name, date and price

Toshiba's Excite X10 made a splash when the company unveiled it at CES, and for good reason: it's one of the most stylish tablets we've ever seen, something made even more impressive when considering that the original Thrive was universally panned as dull. See if you can hang on to your excitement as the tablet comes to market; the re-christened Excite 10 LE will be availablie in the United States starting on March 6th, starting at (gulp) $529.99.
