Last time anyone heard from Toshiba, Ice Cream Sandwich wasn’t going to hit its 10-inch Toshiba Thrive tablet until sometime in the Fall. Luckily Toshiba realized that summer was a much more appropriate time for Ice Cream Sandwich, and has surprised Thrive users with the tasty Android treat a bit earlier than expected.
Toshiba unveiled their 7.7, 10.1, and 13.3-inch Excite tablets today and there happens to be a familiar image in the plethora of press shots sent from Toshiba. That’s right, you’re looking at that rumored Google Nexus tablet image PocketNow got their hands on last week. Oh well, I guess we’ll just have to wait for the next rumored image to unveil itself before getting all excited again. However, what we do have, is a set of new tablets from Toshiba that deserve our attention.
Toshiba is finally bringing its super thin tablet to the U.S. market after many trade floor showings and a minor name change. Previously known as the Excite X10, Toshiba has been touting this device as the world’s thinnest and lightest 10’ tablet available. At only 0.3 inches (7.7mm) thick and weighing just 1.18 pounds (535g), it certainly has reason to brag, but as we all know, being the thinnest doesn’t always equate to being the best. Other specs for the 10 LE include:
Toshiba has plans to go thin this year at CES, and when I mean thin, I mean half as thin as their Toshiba Thrive Android tablet. Toshiba has announced its plans to show off the “World’s thinnest and lightest” tablet and claims the 10.1’ AT200 will only measure in at 7.7mm thick. The AT200 (aka Toshiba Excite) isn’t new to the blogoshpere and was announced back in September, with a December launch date. For whatever reason, Toshiba decided to delay the launch of their 558 gram razor thin tablet until CES, where they plan to show it off alongside their waterproof tablet and 7’ budget tablet.
