Check out pictures of Toshiba's two new Tegra 4 powered Android tablets
Late Thursday, we told you about three new 10 inch, Android 4.2 powered tablets announced by Toshiba. Earlier Tuesday, we were able to show you pictures of the entry-level model, the Toshiba Excite Pure, and now we would like you to turn your attention to the higher-end models. Actually, the Toshiba Excite Pro and Toshiba Excite Write are the same slate, but the Excite Write uses a digitizer and a pen thus allowing you to scribble notes and have it converted to text using Toshiba's TruNote app. But because both tablets do share the same design, there is not a special place to attach your pen which means it can easily get lost.

The 10 inch screen on both models offers resolution of 2560 x 1600. That is the same resolution that you will find on the Google Nexus 10 which means there is a pixel density of about 300ppi for the two Toshiba models. The quad-core Tegra 4 is doing the heavy lifting and multi-taskers will rejoice over the 2GB of RAM on board. There is also 16GB or 32GB of native storage with a microSD slot allowing you to expand storage capacity if need be. An HDMI slot also comes with each slab and on back is a 8MP camera. The tablets both are 10.5mm thick, weighing 632g.

With Harmon Kardon speakers, you can expect outstanding audio quality. The silver back, all textured and rugged looking, is plastic. The Toshiba Excite Pro is priced at £349 ($534 USD) while the pen-equipped Toshiba Excite Write is priced at £499 ($763 USD). There is also a Bluetooth Keyboard Cover that is optional and allows you to type using a physical QWERTY keyboard. The Keyboard Cover also doubles as a stand. Pricing is unknown for that accessory. Both tablets will be exclusively available in the U.K. from Currys and PC World.

O so you prefer 2Gb instead of 4Gb Ram....? Indenial. Says the useless©

Once again, it's GB, not Gb. If you knew anything about tech, you'd know the difference. Clearly, 4GB of RAM is preferable to 2, but only if needed. I personally see no reason at this point in mobile computing for devices to have more than 2GB. I'll save my heavy computing for my laptop.

Also, Gb is short for gigabit, not gigabyte. The abbreviation for gigabyte is GB. Big difference. You just said 256 MB of RAM is useless. Apparently, you'd prefer 512MB. Good for you.

Dude, we all know the differences b/w GB and Gb, but usually when we talk about data connections/internet speed, we use Gb. When we talk about storage and RAM, we use GB. He might have written Gb, but we all know he meant GB. So STFU and stop crying about the same thing again and again.

No one's crying here. This is an internet forum. I have the right to ***GASP*** speak my mind. If you don't like it, take your own advice & GTFO.

Too expensive. Similar specs to the new transformer infinity, yet a lot more expensive?
