Toshiba has just announced a brand new 10-inch tablet which shall be known as the Excite 10 SE. Toshiba is going for the higher end tablet market with this new model. It comes loaded with all the hardware you would expect to see from a tablet on upper-end of the spectrum.

The new Excite 10 SE comes with Android 4.1 installed. This means it has features such as Google Now available out of the box, which certainly improves the devices usability. It also has a NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 quad-core processor, which should offer plenty of power for whatever users want to use the tablet for.

Toshiba’s new tablet is only 0.4 inches thin, which is only slightly thicker than the Nexus 10. It also weighs in at 22.6 ounces, which is about an ounce heavier than the Nexus 10. Both depth and weight differences between this new Toshiba and Nexus 10 are essentially negligible. In terms of size, it is definitely one of the smaller and lighter 10-inch tablet on the market today.

Toshiba’s new tablet will be available on December 6. Toshiba will be selling it at ToshibaDirect and at select retailers. The tablet starts at $349.99 for the 16GB model and goes up from there for models with more memory installed.


  1. No word on the screen? Micro SD slot? Since they released the other details but not these I’m suspicious just how “high end” this tablet is. Even the price is not really that “high end” for a 10″. When the Excite 10 LE came out last spring it was priced at $530 for 16GB with a 1280×800 screen which CNET described as so-so. At $349 I don;t hold much hope that this will really be a high end tablet.

  2. Here’s another new 10-inch Android tablet released last week that truly impresses — The Novo 10 Hero by Ainol Electronics and priced at only $225 – Easily the best “price-performance” 10″ tablet available, and features a High Resolution 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB Memory, a strong Dual Core processor with Quad Core GPU, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Operating System, Wifi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and an option for 3G/4G connection. If you’re not familar with the manufacturer, Ainol Electronics, they received a “Best Tablet of the Year” award at CNET Consumer Electronics Show 2012 and have hit the ball out of the park with this new model. The Novo 10 Hero also offers a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, a MicroSD Memory Card slot for unlimited storage (up to 32GB Memory Cards), includes both front and back cameras with a 2 Megapixel back camera; and includes HDMI output, which is a nice feature to download movies and watch in Full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV. It also makes a great gaming device with its high resolution screen, motion sensor, and a processor strong enough to handle 3D games. One of the first resellers to offer the new Novo 10 Hero is a site called TabletSprint –which also includes $25 in Bonus Apps and hardware accessories.

    • TabletSprint also features a free monthly 3G/4G data plan for the Novo 10 Hero, with no charge for 500MB Data every month… with 3G/4G Connection with full internet access and VoIP voice calling over a nationwide network. A free 4G USB adapter is also included and the Carrier only requires a small refundable deposit on the adapter. TabletSprint certainly makes this a great deal and the Novo 10 Hero is worth comparing to other 10″ tablets available this holiday season.

  3. The Nexus 10 severely undercuts this one I’m afraid. For $50 more you get soooo much more: high resolution, Cortex-A15 processors, 2Gs of memory, clean Android (i.e. no skins) to name a few.
