First rumored back in the fall and shown in beta form during the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Toshiba today officially introduced their new 'Excite' line of tablets featuring models with 7.7, 10 and a whopping 13 inch displays.  The company seems to have learned from many 'Thrive' owner's comments and have made substantial changes to the Excite line.  All of the models are super thin, feature textured aluminum backs...and come packed with Nvidia's Tegra 3 SOC (system on a chip).  Screen resolutions are as follows:  Excite 7.7:  1280 x 800, Excite 10 1280 x 800 and Excite 13: 1600 x 900.  The 7.7 features the same super AMOLED display that is in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. 


Now one of the most laudable features of the Thrive line was its inclusion of full size USB ports as well as other connectors and sadly due to the Excite's thin build a microUSB will have to do.  The Excite 10 and 13 do however include a full size SD Card slot as well as MicroHDMI.  Pricing for the 13 inch model will start at $650 for a 32GB model and go to $750 for a 64GB version.  The Excite 10 will $530 for the 32GB and $650 for 64GB and finally the 7.7 will start at $500 for the 16GB and go to $580 for a 32GB variant.    The company is being particularly vocal on the uniqueness of the Excite 13 and is pitching it as a 'family' tablet that can be used by multiple users in the home.  We'll be curious to see if there's a market for an Android tablet this large.  What do you think?  Is Toshiba on the right track with the new Excite line of tabs?  Would you buy one?
