The Toshiba Excite X10 Tablet

Posted by Alan at 8:21 AM on February 3, 2012

Toshiba was recently at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas showing off their new Excite X10 tablet.  The X10 is impressive upon first view because it is currently the world’s thinnest tablet at just 7.7 millimeters.  Toshiba senior product manager Duke Dang explains that using magnesium and a bonding method between the touch panel and LCD  helped them achieve this.

The tablet features a micro SD slot, micro HDMI port, a micro USB port, headphones jack, a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear-facing camera, and Corning Gorilla Glass.  One unique software feature that Toshiba has introduced is a file manager, which gives the Excite X10 more of a PC feel with the ability to create folders and move files around.  They have also added a screen rotation lock button to the side of the tablet.

The Toshiba Excite X10 is running Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb, and should be available very soon – they are looking at first quarter 2012 release.  There is not yet a price available.  For more info you can visit Toshiba and also check out the video below.
