Toshiba introduces Symbio, a smart home hub, security camera and system, and Alexa speaker in one

Toshiba introduces Symbio, a smart home hub, security camera and system, and Alexa speaker in one

I look around at my hallway console nowadays and see a Canary camera, a Google Home, and a SmartThings Hub v2. Not to mention the Synology server, router, and a few other miscellaneous tech items. The idea of having all three integrated in the same device, saving space and unnecessary wiring is quite appealing, and that's what Toshiba's new Symbio aims to do.

It's a 6-in-1 device: a 1080p wide-angle "low-light" camera with sound and motion alerts, a smart sound detector for babies and pets and even legacy alarms around the house, a Bluetooth and WiFi streaming speaker with ODMD driver, a voice control interface with Amazon Alexa built-in, a smart home hub with ZigBee and Z-Wave radios, and an intercom for communicating between Symbios and phones.

Toshiba Announces The Entry-Level Excite Go 7-Inch Tablet With Android 4.4 For $110

Getting your hands on a budget tablet for around a hundred bucks isn't particularly challenging, but these decidedly underwhelming gadgets typically don't come with the latest version of Android. Toshiba intends to do budget shoppers one better by providing them with a 7-inch tablet with Android 4.4, all for $110. This little guy goes by the name of Excite Go.

Toshiba Excite 7 Review: There's Really No Reason This Tablet Should Even Exist

Toshiba Excite 7 Review: There's Really No Reason This Tablet Should Even Exist

Toshiba pisses me off. It's a company that released one of my favorite Android tablets of all time (which is also subsequently abandoned after 4.1). When I know that a company is capable of putting out good gadgets but they continuously release garbage, it frustrates me. Announcement after announcement, I think this could be the one – this might just be the next good Toshiba device. And every single time, I'm disappointed. And even if they do release something that's worth using, the chance of it ever seeing a major OS update is basically zero. I constantly hope for a second Excite 7.7 with better support.

Toshiba Excite Pro And Excite Write Sneak Onto Best Buy Online And Amazon With Tegra 4 Chips, T3-Based Excite Pure Comes Along For The Ride

Toshiba Excite Pro And Excite Write Sneak Onto Best Buy Online And Amazon With Tegra 4 Chips, T3-Based Excite Pure Comes Along For The Ride

With little fanfare, the first available devices running Nvidia's Tegra 4 ARM chip have popped up at Best Buy and Amazon. The Toshiba Excite Write and Pro tablets are 10.1-inch slates based on Tegra 4, whereas the Pure is another Tegra 3 device. All three new slates appear to be available for purchase right now.

The Tegra 3-based Pure tablet is a midrange affair with a 1280x800 resolution 10.1-inch screen. It comes with 16GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. The specs are okay when you considering the asking price of $299.99 ($266.42 at Amazon). The real headliners of Toshiba's surprise tablets are the Pro and Write.

Toshiba Announces New 10" Tablets: Excite Pure, Excite Pro With Tegra 4 And 2560x1600 Resolution, Excite Write With Stylus

Toshiba Announces New 10" Tablets: Excite Pure, Excite Pro With Tegra 4 And 2560x1600 Resolution, Excite Write With Stylus

Say hello to Toshiba's 2013 Android tablet lineup. Though the company still hasn't made a dent in the tablet market, it's not for lack of trying, and the latest trio of ten-inchers proves that they're not ready to give up the ghost. All three have roughly the same body and dimensions: the Excite Pure is Toshiba's new low-end offering, the Excite Pro is for gamers and resolution junkies, and the Excite Write steps up to Samsung with both high-end specifications and a digitizer-stylus combo.

The Excite Pure is decidedly uninspiring, offering even less hardware prowess than the current Excite 10.

Upcoming Tegra 4-Powered Toshiba AT10LE-A Tablet Leaks, Shows Off Android 4.2.1 And A Keyboard Dock

Upcoming Tegra 4-Powered Toshiba AT10LE-A Tablet Leaks, Shows Off Android 4.2.1 And A Keyboard Dock

Toshiba is kind of all over the place when it comes to Android. It has released some absolutely fantastic hardware in the past, but the lack of support for said hardware is awfully damning when it comes to recommending its devices in good conscience.

Still, it looks like the company is knee-deep in the development of a new tablet, which is currently being called the "AT10LE-A," and is said to be powered by NVIDIA's newest baby – the upcoming Tegra 4. While this isn't the first device we've heard about with T4 roots, it is the first tablet leak we've seen thus far.
