Toshiba Excite 10 SE is introduced; tablet offers 10.1 inches of Jelly Bean delight
T oshiba has introduced a 10.1 inch Android tablet with Android 4.1 pre-installed. The Toshiba Excite 10 SE is powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 processor, and is certainly priced to sell with a MSRP of $349.99. The 10.1-inch diagonal AutoBrite™ HD touchscreen display3 shows vibrant colors and the version of the Tegra 3 under the hood has an extra fifth core that is used for certain tasks, freeing up the other cores for heavy lifting and saving you some battery life.

The Toshiba Excite 10 SE offers SRS® Premium Voice Pro stereo speakers, a 3MP shooter on back and an HD front-facing camera as well. It comes with 16GB of native storage and will be available from ToshibaDirect starting on Thursday. Toshiba hasn't released a list of specs for the tablet, but did note that it is .4 inches thick and weighs 22.6 ounces.

No thank you. I prefer Nexus 10 for $400.

Tegra 3? In a tablet this new? Ewwwwww I'm sorry, but I've had nothing but bad experiences with the Tegra 3. I absolutely love my Transformer Infinity and it's great for school and travel, but the quad core 1.7 GHz chip can't handle NOVA 3. However, the dual core 1.2 GHz Exynos chip in my E4GT can. Lol

It might be the new Tegra 3 that's in the One X+, that performs on par with the S4 Pro quad. Your Infinity might not be able to handle Nova 3 because of the higher resolution as well, so a newer and faster Tegra 3 + lower resolution display (this tablet has 1280 x 800) = extreme performance boost. Though I still think it would be better to drop the extra $50 and get the Nexus 10.

That might be the case. All I know is that it didn't work very well. The only reason I got the Infinity was for the keyboard attachment and battery improvement, so I'm still very happy with my purchase either way.

No it doesn't perform on par with it. GPU is just outdated and really inferior..even compared to Mali 400. Btw, you tried the new AnTutu benchmark? The ranks: S4 quad ~ 20000 points Exynos 4 quad (Note 2) ~ 17500 p Exynos 4 quad (Galaxy s3) ~ 16300 p Tegra 3+ ~ 16100 p

www.phonearena.com/reviews/HTC-One-X-Review_id3172/page/2 The benchmarks listed puts the One X+ on par with the Optimus G and GS3. And the One X+ has better Antutu scores than both of them.

The 3G version of the infinity has a dual core snapdragon s4 right ? The 3G version is better or your Tegra version is better because they cost about the same ? My father having a hard time picking but he's more likely to pick the 3G version

I have no clue. Haven't even tried the 3G version, but it'd be your best bet to check the benchmarks if you can find any for this particular tablet.

Blah...I still didn't recieve the Jelly Bean update for my Toshiba AT300 Excite 10. I was hoping to get it soon to relieve some of the horrible lag I experienced using the tablet but to no avail, Toshiba left me in the dust and released this. Fortunately for me I sold my Excite recently and purchased a Nexus 10 and haven't looked back since.
