It's not as imposing as the monstrous Toshiba Excite 13 or as dazzling as the AMOLED screen on the Excite 7.7, but the Excite 10 looks to compete with the third-generation iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with some pretty beefy specs. This 1.32-pound Android 4.0 tablet has a quad-core Tegra 3 processor running the show along with 1GB of RAM, plus a plethora of ports. The .35-inch thick chassis accommodates a micro USB, micro HDMI and full-size SD Card slot.
While the screen resolution is your standard 1280 x 800 pixels, during our hands-on time it looked very bright. And like the Excite 7.7 and 13, you get a nice textured back that makes this tablet easy to grip. You also get a 5-MP camera on the back and 2-MP front-facing camera for video chats. The Excite 10 goes on sale May 6th for $449 for the 16GB model. The 32GB and 64GB models will cost $529 and $649, respectively. Stay tuned for a full review.
