Announced back in June, Toshiba’s latest entries into the Android tablet arena have finally arrived. The Toshiba Excite Write ($600), Toshiba Excite Pro ($500), and Toshiba Excite Pure ($300) are all now officially available for purchase. Unlike most 2013 tabs, these give you a whole lot more bang for your buck.

The Toshiba Excite Pure (AT15-A16) is your average 10-inch Android tab featuring a 1280×800 resolution display, 16GB internal storage (with micro SD slot), 1GB RAM, 1.2MP front facing camera (there is no rear facing shooter on this model), and runs on a “pure” stock version of Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. This is a great option for those that have been wanting an affordable tab, but needed something much bigger than 7-inches.

The Toshiba Excite Pro (AT15LE-A32) and Toshiba Excite Write (AT15PE-A32) are where things really get interesting. Both these devices are near identical, featuring the same super high-res 10-inch 2,560×1,600 resolution displays fortified with Gorilla Glass 2, NVIDIA Tegra 4 processors, 32GB of internal storage (with micro SD expansion), 2GB RAM, 8MP cameras, and thumpin’ Harmon Kardon speakers.


The Write differs in that it offers a Wacom digitizer/stylus that supports 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. What good would a stylus be without special software to take advantage of it? Well, the Write also comes pre-loaded with Toshiba’s TruNote and TruCapture apps to make note taking easy peasy.

The tablets are currently available from online retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Adorama or even Toshiba Direct where the Pro and Write are $20-off. All the tablets also fit nicely into an optional keyboard dock, that wasLinks provided below.
