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.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 27, 2012

Since we're live at MWC, you've undoubtedly noticed the massive amount of hands-on articles we've managed to get up today. So instead of a wrap-up, this will consist more of a 'hands-on' summary of devices for our second day at MWC. First up, we got to glance at the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. We received a few snapshots with it alongside the original 5.3" Galaxy Note for an easy comparison. Usually you don't see devices ship with Adobe Photoshop, but the Note 10.1 will already include Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas - a few apps that cost $10 each on the Android Market.

Toshiba 7.7-inch prototype quad-core tablet hands-on

And you thought Toshiba's super-skinny Excite was... uh... exciting. Get a load of this 7.7-inch version of the hardware, with the all-important (and seemingly ubiquitous) addition of an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The beautiful little tablet is code-named the AT270, and in addition to the processor it sports a full 1280x800 AMOLED(!) screen, 1GB of RAM and - wait for it - Ice Cream Sandwich. This one's obviously in the early stages of development, but shows a lot of promise already - we'd be very surprised if it didn't reach retail shelves at some point this year.

Toshiba AT200 Excite tablet goes on sale in the UK

OK, so Toshiba's initial Thrive tablet wasn't a world-shattering piece of technological or stylistic innovation. But those of you looking for a stylish entry in the tablet market have one more option today - at least if you live in the United Kingdom. The Toshiba AT200, alternately known as the Excite X10, is now on sale starting at £399 for the 16GB model and an extra fifty quid for the 32GB version.  At 7.7mm thin and weighing just 1.2 pounds, the AT200 is one of the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablets on the market today. You can pick one up from Carphone Warehouse now, and they should start appearing in retail channels sometime next week.

Toshiba BookPlace DB50 takes the color e-reader craze to Japan

7-inch Android devices that blur the lines between a "color e-reader" and "budget tablet" are all the rage here in the US, bud purpose-built models are a bit thin on the ground elsewhere. Toshiba aims to change that, at least in its home country of Japan. The BookPlace DB50 combines a unique shape with a customized version of Gingerbread to create a device purpose-built for Toshiba's proprietary bookstore, which now serves up "about 50,000" Japanese books and periodicals.

Toshiba Excite X10 Hands-On

This is undoubtedly Toshiba's best tablet to date, and has a great thin form factor. There was no lag while operating the device on the showroom floor, but there weren't many strenuous programs preloaded on it to give it a true test. It comes in at .3 inches thin with an aluminum backing, and is running Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) - it will be updated to Android 4.0 after release. We saw earlier that the Excite X10 had a generous 10.1" 1280x800 display, 1GB RAM, and ran over a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor. There is both a 5MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front facing video cam. As you can see, it runs perfectly smooth in the demo, so the final model will likely be even better. It will launch at $529.99 for the 16GB, and a definite release date is not yet determined. Until now, Toshiba's tablets haven't been quite eye-friendly. But if this new style continues and they drop the price a little bit, they could have a great selling product. [gallery]

Toshiba 7″ tablet images appear as Toshiba preps for CES

Toshiba and their tablets aren't really what I'd call pretty or thin but at this years CES Toshiba aims to change that. The Toshiba AT200 (Excite) we've seen plenty of in the past is set to make a big splash this year, coming in as one of the thinnest Android tablets on the street. We are now seeing pictures of a new budget 7" tablet that could be roaming the CES halls.

Toshiba’s 7-inch Thrive available now

I'm sure there's at least one person out there who absolutely loved everything about Toshiba's 10-inch thrive Honeycomb tablet (even the headache-inducing commercials) except for its to-inch size. Well rejoice, One Guy, because the long-leaked 7-inch variant is available from Toshiba now, and should be hitting US retailers in the near future. The 16GB and 32GB versions will set you back $379.99 and $429.99, respectively.

Toshiba Excite AT200 gets a February 2012 release in Canada

Many were somewhat underwhelmed with Toshiba's Android tablet debut, the 10-inch Thrive, even with its fabulous marketing strategy of telling consumers how smart they were through Tony Bennet-style singing. The second revision, now renamed the Excite, is headed for a release up north in February of next year. Mobile Syrup quotes an anonymous source that contradicts its January date on the website. Canadians looking for a super-slim Honeycomb tablet, try to contain your excitement.
