Toshiba Excite 10 visits the FCC headed for May release

The 10-inch entry in Toshiba’s new lineup of Ice Cream Sandwich tablets will be the first to hit shelves, and likewise is the first to find its way to the FCC. The quad-core Toshiba Excite 10 has been getting its pre-requisite certifications en route to a May release, when it will be available starting at $449.99 for the 16GB model. The tablet utilizes a Tegra 3 chipset coupled with 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear and 1.3MP front-facing camera, and plenty of connectivity.

The Excite 10 is fairly standard otherwise. A 7-inch model will feature an AMOLED display while a 13.3-inch slate gets points for utilizing an unusual screen size.

    These tablets look really nice, and I’m glad to see a more untouched ICS UI unlike my Prime… but, after using the Prime with the keyboard dock for a month or so now, I don’t think I can go back to a tablet without the keyboard dock option.

      Good to know. I’m in the process of buying my very 1ST android tab and I LOVE this new Toshiba due to the ports but i’ve heard some GREAT things about the Prime as well. Anyone have any specific reasons why I should get one over the other? If so please comment because this is a decision that’s KEEPING ME UP AT NIGHT, JUST DREAMIN OF TABLETS!

        Hardware-wise, it looks as though they’ll perform about the same (and that T3 chip is FAST, makes my GSM Galaxy Nexus feel like a Nexus One)… so I would chalk it up to that keyboard and how picky you are about a pure looking version of Android ;-)

        Like I said, once you feel the flexibility they keyboard offers, it’s like having a netbook and a tablet for a fraction more. I’m a purist (all I’ve ever owned are Nexus phones) so I’m a little turned off by the stuff ASUS has done with the UI and additions of their own apps of which I use none… I went the rooted route, but went back to stock because the thing was getting updated so often, I was tired of the back and forth with having to redo all my personal tweaks.
