Toshiba Excite tablets announced: Excite Pro, Excite Write, Excite Pure, running Android 4.2
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.
