Excerpt: Toshiba Excite 10 is a powerful Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixels touchscreen, quad-core 1.5GHz NVidia Tegra 3 processor, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, GPS, 16/32/64 GB of built-in storage that is further expandable with microSD memory cards.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Summary: The most valuable feature of the Toshiba Excite 10 LE is its light and ultra thin body that features a stylish design. Overall the tablet delivers a good user experience, with a good quality display and regular performance. We have to keep in mind that it was introduced on the market a few months earlier than the fastest and newest Tegra 3- powered Android tablets launched in the past two months.
Conclusion: The Excite 10 is one of the most powerful and beautifully designed 10-inch tablets you can buy right now, but it can't match the iPad on features, and there are better values in the Android world.
Conclusion: Above all, we have to admit that we truly love the direction that Toshiba has gone with this tablet, as it seemingly obliterated all remnants of the Toshiba Thrive from last year that has floated around in our heads. Donning a vastly better looking design combined with some muscle flexing hardware specs, there’s enough to like about the $450 priced Toshiba Excite 10 .
Pros: Solid aluminum body, Fast quad-core processor
Cons: Bleeding around the sides of the display, Shoots terrible photos & videos
Summary: With its vibrant display, excellent performance, good port selection and expandable memory, the $449 Excite 10 is a much better value than the $529 Excite 10 LE. We also prefer this tablet's design to chunkier slates like the Ionica Tab A510. However, the mediocre camera and below-average battery life keep this slate from being a top pick.
Conclusion: For those looking for a straight Android tablet rather than a convertible netbook style tablet, we can easily recommend the Toshiba Excite 10. It has the fastest CPU currently available in tablets and the latest OS. It's very fast and stable, and it's thin and light. As a premium product its materials and design stand ahead of the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 and Acer Iconia Tab A510.
Pros: Thin, light and premium materials. Fast quad core Tegra 3. USB Host, runs ICS.
