Pictures of the Toshiba Excite Pure show off the OEM's new entry-level Android slate
The 10 inch glass on the Toshiba Excite Pure offers resolution of 1280 x 800 and while you already know about the Tegra 3 processor under the hood, we should tell you that the slab will feature 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. The latter can be expanded thanks to the microSD slot on the device. There is also an HDMI port and the cameras on back and front come in at 3MP and 1.2MP respectively.
For those who need the feel of a physical QWERTY, Toshiba is going to offer a Bluetooth Keyboard Cover. Not only does it provide a better typing experience, it also doubles as a stand, allowing you to prop up your tablet and use it in a similar fashion to the way you would a laptop computer. While we don't have any pricing on the Keyboard Cover, the tablet itself is tagged at £249 ($381 USD) as an exclusive for Currys and PC World in the U.K.

I honestly don't know why some companies even bother entering the low-price tablet market. There is little profit to be had already; plus the competition is rough with the kindle and nexus.
But good luck anyway, Toshiba.

True, but low price tablets are sold like a hot cake in emerging market like Asia which most people can only afford low price tablets. Let alone China with its 1.2 billion population, India 1 billion, Indonesia 250 million, etc. Little profit times a billion = MONEY
