Engadget posted some interesting news today. After Toshiba's Thrive tablets were widely panned by tech reviewers and critics alike, Toshiba decided to go back to the drawing board. The Thrive has dgone the way of the Dodo and Toshiba now brings us the Excite 7.7, 10 and 13.
All three will have NVIDIA's Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich. The 13-incher steps up to 1600 x 900 resolution (as opposed to 1280 x 800). Both the 10 and 13" sport a full-sized SD slot. However there was no room for full-sized USB and HDMI ports on tablets this thin.
Notice that I kept bolding the 13 inch tablet. I understand that in a lot of cases "Bigger is better" but why would you want such a large tablet? Especially at the hefty price tag of $650 for 32GB or $750 for 64GB? I pose that question to you readers. What do you need a 13" Tablet for?
Price points for the Excite 7.7: $500 for 16GB. $580 for 32GB.
The Excite 10 starts at $500 for 16GB. $530 for 32GB and $650 for 64GB.
Head on over to Engadget for the whole story.
