Toshiba’s 13-Inch Excite Tablet Is Not That Exciting

Toshiba’s Thrive tablets were certainly not crowd favorites, and the company, after listening to customer complaints, has introduced a new line of tablets in the Excite line. It’s a good thing that they are changing their designs and bringing out pretty looking devices: the 7.7″ tablet which has the same AMOLED display on the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the 10″ Excite with a resolution of 1280 x 800. But why in the world have they decided to include an unnecessarily large 13″ model in the list?

Lenovo Plans To Launch A 9.7-Inch ICS IdeaPad

In the Android world we pretty much have two standard groups when it comes to sizes, that's the 10-inchers and the 7-inchers.

What the $399 iPad 2 Could Mean for Android Tablets
