We’re continuing to see new devices being unveiled and now it’s turn for some new Toshiba Excite tablets. The manufacturer announced three new Android-powered slates joining the family: the Excite Pro, Excite Write and Excite Pure, all ten-inchers running version 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The Toshiba Excite Pro (above) and the Excite Write (below) are basically one and the same tablet, though not really. Screen resolution is 2560 x 1600 on both and they pack an Nvidia Tegra 4 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD), as well as an eight-megapixel main camera. Toshiba is calling out the premium audio in the slates, provided by Harman Kardonstereo speakers.
The Toshiba Excite Write though features a touchscreen digitizer for precision pen and handwriting, meaning it raises the bar and puts up a solid competition for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1. The “TruPen” will not be housed within the tablet though but will land with a TruNote application suite.
The Toshiba Excite Pure on the other hand is the lowest-end among them, featuring modest specs which include 1280 x 800 resolution, Tegra 3 processor, and 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a three-megapixel main camera.
The Toshiba Excite Pure will cost $299.99, the Excite Pro $499.99, and the Excite Write $599.99 MSRP. All three Toshiba Excite tablets will be available starting June 25, 2013.
