Forget the iPad and Samsung Galaxy – Toshiba’s cutting down the bottom line with a featherweight Android tablet contender at 7.7mm or .3 inches thin which it claims to be the world’s thinnest 10-inch tab.
Built light but strong, the Excite X10 tablet was on show at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, showing off its magnesium body and Gorilla Glass screen.
The pricing of the 10.1 inch tablet is slated to be higher than Apple’s, with a 16GB model going for US$530, up to US$600 for the 32GB variety.
Users get a slew of connections on the otherwise Wi-Fi only for the extra dosh, including Bluetooth support, micro USB, micro HDMI and a micro SD slot. Toshiba has also thrown in DLNA capabilities for interacting with devices in the home tech ecosystem.
Around the back sits a five megapixel cam with an LED flash, all built into the solid backing. On the front sits a two megapixel camera.
Continuing the thin trend, read on to get the scoop on Toshiba’s foray into the world of 14-inch Ultrabooks.
Toshiba’s latest laptop is a 14-inch Ultrabook, matching the extra inch of competitors like Samsung and, most recently, LG. As we move into 2012, more manufacturers are pushing from 13 into 14 inch machines.
The Intel-powered laptop comes in similar stead to Toshiba’s typical Satellite family of notebooks and, thanks to the bigger build than 13 inch Ultrabooks, has been able to fit in HDMI and Ethernet ports for a more complete set of connections.
Toshiba is yet to give its latest Ultrabook a name or even confirm its hardware specs, but completed models are expected mid-year.
