Apart from price, the Toshiba Excite 10 SE release date details have also been announced by the company for the US. The tablet caters to the high-end segment by offering a plethora of beefy hardware whilst maintaining a relatively affordable cost.
This latest device runs on the Jelly Bean platform right out of the box. According to Carl Pinto, the vice president of marketing at the company’s Digital Products Division in the US, the slate will offer a pure Android experience just like the Nexus tablets. The features employed here are said to be suitable for almost any kind of need, be it gaming, high portability or performance. Tucked away within its 0.4-inch thick form factor is a quad core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia which houses a fifth battery saver core that handles things like active standby as well as music and video playback and more. Here we’re talking about tasks which typically need less power to function.
The Excite 10 SE is fitted with a 10.1-inch AutoBrite HD display and an HD webcam on its front, while the rear houses a 3MP camera with AF, digital zoom and HD video capture. The slate is preloaded with the Chrome browser for accessing the internet. There’s also the personal assistant Google Now, in tow, the Voice Search application and SRS Premium Voice Pro enhancement for a rich audio experience. The previous addition in this lineup boasts of similar specifications, but runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The company is also offering a 13-inch slate and a 7-inch option in the series.
The Toshiba Excite 10 SE is scheduled to hit availability status on December 6, 2012, that’s tomorrow, for $349.99. The specified cost is for the 16GB version. The tablet will be up for grabs through select retailers and via ToshibaDirect.com in the US. There’s currently no concrete information whether the device will arrive in 32GB or 64GB versions.
