Have you heard about the latest news? Toshiba will unveil the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. In fact, it will be named as the Toshiba Excite X10. The name itself is enough to get you excited.
Anyways, there are still lots of mysteries to uncover and we are yet to know whether this slate will go with Google’s latest Android OS. That being said, we can’t really confirm if the slate will be powered by Android 4.0 ICS. Just don’t let go of the possibility that Toshiba might ship the 10.1 inch Excite X10 with Android Honeycomb.
Nevertheless, we do know that it will be housed in a very slim body that won’t go any thicker than 7.7mm. That’s 0.6mm thinner than the Asus Transformer Prime. The latter can now be dubbed as the world’s second thinnest tablet. The Toshiba Excite X10 flaunts an average weight of 1.2 pounds. If that doesn’t tempt you, you might as well dig a bit deeper inside the slate’s hardware. That’s because you can certainly rely on its dual core OMAP 4430 chip from Texas Instruments that has been clocked at 1.2GHz.
Furthermore, the slate can also take pride of its HD-capable 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 5 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, micro USB, micro HDMI and micro SD slot. Also, there were rumors stating that the Excite X10 is no other than the rebranded version of the Toshiba Regza AT700 that can now be availed in Japan.
Speaking of which, the so-called mysterious tablet from Toshiba that will be unveiled at the 2012 CES is currently slated for mid-Q1 release. We have also heard from the grapevine that its retail price will go somewhere in between $530 and $600. The slate will come in two different storage versions: 16GB and 32GB.
