Toshiba Excite Go features 7-inch display, $109.99 price tag


It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Toshiba, but today the ‘Tosh ended that silence with a trio of new tablets.

Toshiba today took the wraps off of three new tablet devices: the Excite Go running Android and two Encore 2 models that are powered by Windows 8.1. Here are the spec breakdowns for all three units:

Toshiba Excite Go

  • 7-inch 1024×600 display
  • Quad-core Intel Atom processor
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • microSD slot with support for cards up to 128GB in size
  • Battery life of 7.5 hours of general use
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Full version of OfficeSuite Pro
  • Launching in early July for $109.99

Obviously Toshiba is aiming at the affordable tablet market with its new Excite Go tablet. While its specs aren’t going to blow your hair back, especially that low-res 1024×600 display, these Excite Go could be worth checking out for anyone that’s on the hunt for a new, portable tablet that’ll be easy on the wallet.

    Hrm… An Atom processor in the Android version?
    So this means it will be running Intel’s Android port?
    Does that mean it will probably take longer to get updates (if at all)?

    Does anyone know:
    Will Android apps written with the NDK (native code) work with Intel’s Android version?

      Yes, from the end user point of view, there is not much difference in Android running on Intel platform and Intel is always know for its high computing capabilities. It also has advantage of 64 bit architecture.

      It depends on OEMs to provide android upgrades, and it does not make any difference if underlying SOC is Intel Atom.
