Toshiba Excite 10 LE Android Tablet As Thin As It Gets

The race to ultra slimness has taken on bulemic supermodel proportions. Shaving off those precious millimeters is the newly introduced Toshiba Excite 10 LE. The Android tablet is about as thin as it gets with its 7.7mm profile. To put that into perspective, the original Eee Pad Transformer TF101 measured 12.98mm thick. Even the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is just 8.6mm thick.

The new Toshiba tablet has apparently shaved some weight too, tipping the scales at a paltry 1.18 pounds. Despite the shedding of millimeters and fractions of pounds, the Toshiba Excite 10 LE still has a reasonable assortment of connectivity options, including microUSB, HDMI, microSD, WiFi, and Bluetooth.

Power comes by way of an OMAP 4430 1.2GHz dual core processor and Android 3.2 Honeycomb, backing up that 1280×800 10.1-inch AutoBrite Display. Ice Cream Sandwich is being promised by the end of spring. Rounding out the specs are a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. The 16GB and 32GB models will sell for $529 and $599, respectively.

As I mentioned in my review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, though, thinner isn’t always necessarily better, particularly when it comes to tablets. It’s just harder to get a comfortable grip, but I guess that’s up to personal preference.
