Toshiba Excite 13: The Biggest Tablet in Review

It is a matter of discussion that how big or how small a tablet should be, in other words what exactly the right size for tablet is. All the way from 7 inches to 10.5 inches there are different sizes of tablets in the market. And now, the Japanese tech conglomerateToshiba has raided the market with a 13.3 inch monster named Toshiba Excite 13.

The users will eventually decide whether the idea of the bigger the better goes true in the case of Toshiba Excite 13 or not. The device is marketed as a $650 device that is, “ideally suited for the home use”.
Your first glimpse of the tablet might tell you that Toshiba has taken a cue from Samsung’s Galaxy Note and gone for the bigger size of the handset.

Tech specs of the Toshiba Excite 13

In spite of the mammoth size of the body the handset weighs just 2.2 pounds, though that weight is a little too much for long time usage. The 13.3 inch LED backlit display has a 1600x900 pixel resolution, which is a great thing for such a humongous screensize. Just above the screen a 2MP camera sits pretty and on the back side of the body a 5MP camera with LED flash adds glitter to glory.

The device comes with a 32 GB onboard memory. And for those who believe in mega storage options there is a microSD card slot as well to enhance the already huge storage capacity. In the processor segment the device has  Nvidia Tegra 3, which happens to be a quad core one the processor is well complimented by a 1GB RAM.

If we turn our heed towards the OS of the handset it has got the latest and the best Android till date – the IceCream Sandwich 4.0.

The Verdict

The high point of the device is, without doubt, its superfast quad core processor and the ICS OS. And the low point (somewhat low) is the mammoth size of the body, which at times will become too much to handle. But all in all it is a good device, no doubt. For me, Toshiba Excite 13 is a worthwhile thing.
