Toshiba Excite

The Toshiba Excite AT200 is a new Android tablet from Toshiba. Like the company’s Toshiba Thrive tablet, the Excite has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, but the new model is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, and features a 1.2 Ghz TI OMAP 4430 dual core processor instead of an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip.

Toshiba hasn’t yet announced the US launch date for the tablet, but we’ve already heard that it will launch in Germany in January. Now Toshiba Canada is also showing a January, 2012 release date for the Excite — although MobileSyrup reports that the launch date could actually be February.

The tablet will ship with Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb, feature 16GB to 32GB of storage, a 2MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera.

While the Toshiba Thrive tablet I reviewed this summer stood out from the crowd thanks to its full-sized SD card, USB, and HDMI ports, the Toshiba Excite has microSD and HDMI ports and a mini USB port. It also lacks the user replaceable battery found in the Thrive. Those are some of the sacrifices you make when you try to make a tablet thinner.

The Thrive measured about 0.6 inches thick, while the Excite is about 0.3 inches thick.

  1. Is this the same one Tosh claimed was the “world’s thinnest 10″ tablet”  at various electronics shows a few months back?

    Looking at the release date, one would expect it to come with ICS instead of Honeycomb, me thinks.
