Summary: When it comes to tablets, how big is too big? Toshiba says that the Excite 13 is meant to be used primarily around the home, but there's simply not enough here to justify the $649 price. The screen isn't as bright or as sharp as we'd like, the cameras are mediocre, and the battery life is below average. Finally, although it's not Toshiba's fault, there's a dearth of Android apps that look good at 1280 x 800 pixels, much less 1600 x 900.
Toshiba announces 13 inch Excite tablet – did they miss the point or is this the next Galaxy Note?
17 April 2012
Conclusion: Toshiba says that the Excite 13 is mostly for indoor use, to comfortably browse the Web, watch videos and listen to music. It would really look great in the living room or in the kitchen – with the desk stand and no keyboard it would not take a lot of space, but the price is a bit high to make it worth it. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Excerpt: With a 13.3-inch screen, the Toshiba Excite 13 is markedly different from many other tablets available on the market today, pretty much sitting in a category all on its own. If you believe that larger means better, then the Excite 13 should open up exciting possibilities for you. Like the Toshiba Excite 10 tablet, the Excite 13 is an Android-powered device that runs on NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 CPU.
Excerpt: In the tablet game, there seems to be only one question - what's the right size? Samsung with their Galaxy Note figured a 5-incher qualified only as a hybrid. The iPad proved people would buy a 9-incher en masse, the HP reaffirmed it, and the Blackberry thought it stumbled on something magical with its 7.7-inch tablet.
Excerpt: When is a tablet no longer a tablet? One might ask that question when looking at the Toshiba Excite 13, even though it is clearly a tablet given its lack of an integrated keyboard. The largest of any tablet announced or shipping, this slate is all about its generous display. But does a 13-inch display make a tablet too unwieldy?
Summary: Toshiba Excite 13 è un tablet con sistema operativo Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, display da 13 pollici, risoluzione 1600x900 pixel, processore quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3, fotocamere da 5 e 2 megapixel, uscita video HDMI
Conclusion: Diseñar el tamaño perfecto para la pantalla de uan tableta es sin duda una tarea trabajosa. Existen varios debates acerca de “que tan grande es demasiado grande” para un dispositivo móviles, aunque al menos los diseñadores de dispositivos móviles pueden seguir una regla en común, que quepa en la palma de una mano. Pero ¿que sucede con las tabletas?
