Summary: Small tablet. Toshiba installs Nvidia's high-performance Tegra 3 platform in an awesomely compact case in the AT270. The AMOLED screen is only 7.7-inches but provides a high resolution. Will this work?
Pros: High manufacturing quality, Good material choice, Compact size, Very low weight, Good black value and contrast, Adequately high performance, Fair warranty models, Dedicated USB port, The compact, very lightweight device is the perfect companion for long trips. Performance and equipment are also in line with that.
Cons: Very low brightness, Light jerking during FullHD playback, Moderate camera quality, Average battery life, We don't dare ask for better cameras anymore. But higher brightness is a must. Toshiba wastes the AMOLED technology's potential.
Conclusion: The tablet lists for $499 (16 gig). That's a high price for a 7" class tablet, and in fact it's the same price as the Toshiba Excite 10. I know many of you expect smaller tablets to be less expensive, and Toshiba's pricing is surprising. That said, it's currently the best 7" class tablet on the market. The 0.3", 13 ounce tablet is thin, light and stylish. But it's not just good looks: the 1.3GHz Tegra 3 quad core is every bit as fast as 10" Android tablets.
Pros: Gorgeous display, classy build materials, fast quad core with ICS.
Excerpt: We’re reviewing the Toshiba Excite 7.7 a bit late, and that’s good and bad. It’s good because we now know that Google has upped the 7-inch tablet game with its Nexus 7 tablet, but bad for Toshiba because it now has to justify why its 7.7-inch Excite is $500 instead of $200. Below, we’ll review the Excite on its own merits and compare it to Google’s new tablet. Toshiba has several advantages. Whether they’re enough to justify its expense will be up to you.
Pros: Gorgeous AMOLED screen, 7.7 inches is a good screen size, Super thin and super lightweight, microSD slot, On paper, it's nicer than the Nexus 7
Cons: Expensive (starts at $500), Android tablet apps are sparse, Battery life doesn't impress, Proprietary charging port
Conclusion: No longer regarded as a newcomer in the Android tablet scene, Toshiba is doing a great job in building up its reputation with its new line of Excite tablets. Just like its names, there’s a lot of excitement surrounding the diminutive Toshiba Excite 7.7 , as it boasts top-notch hardware in a compact body. From its rigorous performing quad-core processor to its stunning “AutoBrite” AMOLED display, there are a lot of things that reels us into this tablet.
Pros: Solid construction, Vibrant AutoBrite AMOLED display, Fast performance
A compact, well designed Android tablet with an excellent screen, but way overpriced

Summary: The Toshiba Tablet AT270 has an excellent display, a good design, comfortable ergonomics and impressive performance. However, at $539 the AT270 is an incredibly tough sell given Google's Nexus 7 provides far superior value. Tough to recommend, barring a massive price drop.
Pros: Outstanding display, Excellent performance, Very good ergonomics
Cons: Appalling cameras, No 3G connectivity, Ridiculously overpriced
Excerpt: The Toshiba Excite 7.7 is just one of several Android-powered tablets from Toshiba. It comes in a 7-inch form factor, uses anNVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, offers up to 32GB of onboard storage, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich by default. It’s presents a formidable proposition on paper. But just when it seems like nothing could ever go wrong with the Excite 7.7, Toshiba goes and ruins things.
Excerpt: Da wir euch noch kein Unboxing für das Toshiba AT270 geliefert haben, verbinden wir das gleich mit einem Test und haben ein komplettes Video gemacht. Das Tablet bietet uns einiges und wird zum Ende auch noch mit dem Google Nexus 7 Tablet verglichen. Leider ist der Preis mit ca. 550€ sehr hoch gegriffen, wobei uns der Tegra 3 Prozessor eine gute Leistung abliefert.
