Toshiba has announced yet another 10-inch Android Tablet in the market, where recently the main concentration from most of the brands is on the 7-inch tablet devices. Earlier it was the Excite LE tablet device from Toshiba which was in the scene, but now the Excite SE has been announced with an affordable price, being $50 cheaper than the Excite LE. The Excite SE sports a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, having a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels while there is a NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core processor to hold the speed high.
The Excite SE would be running the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, unlike the previous tabs that were all with the Android ICS, and thus the user experience would get better with the new features included and upgrades made with the Jelly Bean OS. The tablet is slim, with a thickness of 0.4 inch and the weight being 22.6 ounces. In terms of design, the Toshiba Excite SE has got a textured Fusion Lattice finish for the outside casing, which would provide the best comfort and grip for handling and carrying the tablet device.
The 10.1-inch diagonal AutoBrite™ HD touchscreen display would provide the best graphics quality, while the performance is going to be supported by the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 Super 4-PLUS-1™ quad-core processor is enough to give a smooth web browsing experience along with the performance kept high during heavy gaming.
The Excite SE’s stereo speakers are powered by the SRS® Premium Voice Pro, which would provide an optimized voice experience for anything including audio, video, gaming etc. There is a rear camera with the 3 megapixel lens, that has the auto-focus and digital zoom to provide HD quality of video recording, and decent photo capture.
The connectivity is limited to 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® 3.0 and the MicroUSB ports, and there is no cellular data network connectivity option available. If the given storage isn’t enough, there is an option to expand it using the MicroSD card.
The pricing for the Toshiba Excite SE 10-inch tablet starts from $349.99 for the 16GB version, and that wouldn’t be a high price when you are going to hold the big 10-inch device in your hands. This compared to the Galaxy Tab from Samsung and the iPad from Apple, would have many specs lesser in grade, but the pricing too has to be taken as a factor, as none of those are available at a price range less than $400, and Toshiba’s Excite LE was available for $400.
The Excite SE would be available from December 6th, at the retail stores of Toshiba, as well as online at Toshibadirect.com.
