Toshiba refreshes its Excite tablets with Tegra 4-based Android tablets

Samsung is known to offer a host of features, and now Toshiba seems determined to follow its suit by offering 3 different tablets.

Toshiba has just announced three new tablets in its already operating Excite Android range tablet, each wanting to be the equivalent of a Samsung solutions on various segments.

The most affordable is the Excite Pure, a tablet in 10-inch format powered by a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and a version of Android 4.2 at stock. It will offer 16GB of storage, overall well finished and will be offered at $299.99, which competes with Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7.



The Excite Pro tablet sports a 10.1-inch screen size, but the display is of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It is based on Tegra 4 platform which settles between 16GB and 32GB of storage and more efficient than the Pure camera as well. By cons, at $499, it is more expensive than the Nexus 10 and remains at the same price of the iPad, a challenging position that will probably not benefit the tablet.



Finally, Toshiba also unveiled its ultimate tablet, the Excite Write that once again shows the overall design of others. It also shared same equipment like Excite Pro which adds a stylus pressure sensitive digitizer manufactured by Wacom. A set of software tools closer to the Samsung Galaxy Note and everything will be done to transform the platform into a real tablet. It should be sold at  $599.99, we wonder if Toshiba will find audience for it.


Toshiba has a rather complicated history with the tablets so far, but the Nvidia Tegra 4 platform installed in two of its new products could boost sales. Still, the competition is also expected to move to new generations of SoC soon.
