Remember a couple of days ago when we reported that Toshiba may be unveiling a slim new tablet at IFA to compete with the Galaxy Tab 10.1? It turns out the rumor was true, and Notebook Italia has released the first live photos of what we suspect will be called the Toshiba Excite.


Despite the iffy appearance of the various ports shown in the initial renders, Notebook Italia confirms that the tablet has microSD, microUSB, and mini HDMI ports. Rumor has it that this beauty is also packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (the OMAP4460 from Texas Instruments, to be exact).


We'll be keeping you updated as Toshiba releases more information at IFA Berlin. Until then you can read over the original release at Notebook Italia.

Thanks, Marco!

    I am actually getting tried of seeing new awesome Android tablets that when released, cost $700+. I hope this is not one of those.

    • Jon Garrett

      there was only one tablet that was released at that price., the Xoom for $800 so what exactly are you tired of?

      every Android tablet besides the Xoom was released for $500 or less.

        Another example is HTC's new 10" tablet which will be $700 on contract from AT&T.

        Also the LG Optimus Pad launched at $700 off contract, but who's counting.

    I want this, now we just need a release date and a price. I am in the market now, if it will be released any time soon, for under 500, ill take it.

      I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Toshiba will announce the deets in their presser at IFA

    That's the same CPU that will be in the Nexus Prime. Hope it's true. I really don't like honeycomb tablets, I like Android on a phone.

    • luca

      Well Android 4.0 ICS should remedy that... knowing that this Tab will have the same SoC as the Prime, hopefully Android 4.0 will easily (and rapidly) be ported to the Excite.

  • SYO

    That looks like a proprietary connector right there. Dang it why :|

    • luca

      hopefully it will come with an awesome dock like the transformer...

  • psych4

    It's actually a PDMI port... (Open standard which Samsung & Asus use)

  • L boogie
