Jan 13th - We're always excited to see sub-$100 Android tablets, because we're of the opinion that everyone should have access to mobile technology. That's why the $99 Toshiba Excite 7 did exactly as its name says it would. We ran into this 7-inch follow up to last year's $180 device at CES 2014, and got our grubby little hands on the device to see what that crisp $100 could get you.
