Toshiba Announces New Excite Line For The U.S.: Say Hello To The 7.7, 10.1, and 13.3-inch Slates

Go big or go home. That must be Toshiba's new mantra where tablets are concerned, as it just announced a trio of Ice Cream Sandwich-packin', Tegra 3-powered additions to its Excite tablet line: a 7.7-inch, 10.1-inch, and 13.3-inch model.

The 7.7-inch model, appropriately named the Excite 7.7, sports a 1280x800 AMOLED display, the quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Ice Cream Sandwich. At just 0.3-inches thick and 13.4 ounces, the Excite 7.7 is a powerhouse in a tiny package.

[Deal Alert] Toshiba Thrive 10.1 16GB For $250 From eBay Daily Deals (50% Off MSRP)

[Deal Alert] Toshiba Thrive 10.1 16GB For $250 From eBay Daily Deals (50% Off MSRP)

So you want a decent Android tablet (not one of those cheap knock-offs), but you don't want to break the bank, and an affordable seven-incher isn't quite what you had in mind. How about a 10.1-inch Toshiba Thrive for $250? Sure, it's not a Tegra 3-packing Transformer Prime, but at less than half the price of the TFP, it's still hard to beat. In fact, this is one of the best prices that we've ever seen on a premium Tegra 2 tablet.

[Update: New Video] Toshiba Excite 10 LE Goes On Sale March 6th, Starts At $529.99, Totally Isn't Trying To Preempt iPad Announcement

[Update: New Video] Toshiba Excite 10 LE Goes On Sale March 6th, Starts At $529.99, Totally Isn't Trying To Preempt iPad Announcement

We got a look at the Excite 10 LE's at CES when it was called the Excite X10. Now, Toshiba is bringing the thinnest and lightest tablet* to the US market. The Excite 10 LE is identical to the Excite X10 aside from a couple of letters being rearranged. The slate still packs a "multicore" OMAP processor under a 10.1" LED screen. Unfortunately, the device will be launching with Honeycomb (3.2), but is "upgradeable to Android 4.0."

[MWC 2012] Hands-On With The Toshiba 7.7" AT270 Tegra 3 Tablet

[MWC 2012] Hands-On With The Toshiba 7.7" AT270 Tegra 3 Tablet

We trotted on over to the NVIDIA boot at MWC in Barcelona this morning, and happened upon the newest tablet offering from Toshiba, the AT270. Officially unnamed at this point, the device is packing a 7.7" SAMOLED 1280x800 display, a Tegra 3 processor, Wi-Fi, and 32GB of storage (it's unknown if this is the standard amount). It's also running Android 4.0.

Playing with the device was a fairly pleasant experience - though an attendee using the AT270 right before us managed to lock up the device on the unlock screen.

Toshiba Thrive (10.1 and 7) To Get Android 4.0... At The End Of Spring

Toshiba Thrive (10.1 and 7) To Get Android 4.0... At The End Of Spring

Remember the big ol' port-tastic Toshiba Thrive 10.1 and its seven-inch baby brother? Well, Toshiba has been running around telling folks on one of those social sites that it will be bringing ICS to this pair of Android tablet "at the end of spring."

Yes, spring.

When we hear end of spring, we automatically think sometime around mid-to-end of June, which is, well, quite a ways off. Of course, this isn't an 'official' statement per se, but considering the word came directly from Toshiba's PR Manager, it does carry some weight.

[CES 2012] Toshiba Unveils 5.1", 7.7", and 13.3" Android Tablets - Tells Us Absolutely Nothing About Them

We're live at CES on the show floor this morning, meandering around countless booths to bring you all the Android-related news you can handle. One of our first stops in the Las Vegas Convention Center was the Toshiba booth, where the company demoed three brand-new Android tablets, which they refused to tell us anything about - aside from their display sizes (and the fact that they are coming at some point this year).

[Update: Hands-On Video] Toshiba Announces The Excite X10 For The U.S., Available Sometime In Q1

Update: Here's our hands-on with the Excite x10 (note: we misstated that the processor is a Snapdragon S4, it's actually a TI OMAP4430 - we blame Toshiba's open bar):

It's no secret that Toshiba's first attempt at an Android tablet was on the receiving end of a decent amount of criticism for its less-than-ideal size, so the company decided to super-model up its newest offering to the world, the Excite X10.

Toshiba Thrive 7 Review: Less Like The Original Than You Might Think - But That's A Good Thing

Toshiba Thrive 7 Review: Less Like The Original Than You Might Think - But That's A Good Thing

The Toshiba Thrive and I don't exactly have a great history. And that's probably putting it mildly. In fact, in my first review of Toshiba's first Tegra 2 tablet (yes, I had to write a second one) earlier this year, I panned it so hard that I basically just started textually abusing the poor thing. So, at the behest of commenters and colleagues, I rewrote it. My revised review (here) was a little less harsh, but I'll be the first to admit: I didn't like the Thrive, and after spending even more time with it after the review, my feelings were unchanged.
