Toshiba Excite Tablets Graced by Awesomely Pretty Display Tech

June 4, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Refreshing its line of Excite tablets with new technology that includes crystal-clear screen with resolution twice as much as that sported by peers, Toshiba’s tablet activity seems to be back on track.

Apart from the amazing screen technology, the company is also throwing in a slew of other new components.

So what we have here are three new Excite tablets that run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. Christened Excite Pro, Excite Write, and Excite Pure, they come sporting 10.1-inch screens, Nvidia Tegra 4 processors, Harman Kardon speakers and a touchscreen digitizer for accurate input and writing on the touch screen.

We also hear Toshiba’s signature display technology will be used in the two of the three models i.e. 2560 x 1600 Pixel Pure display. The technology in fact locks horns with Apple’s own Retina display.

Carl Pinto, the vice president of marketing at Toshiba’s US division has been quoted as saying that the company is aware of consumers’ affection to tablets as they use it for entertainment and while traveling.

Toshiba has ensured commitment on expanding the boundaries further to maximize the potential of these three tablets.

The company has plans to convert these devices from consumption devices to creative devices for customers, and will be focusing on increasing the resolution of the screen to adding a digitizer option for better screen performance. The PixelPure display brings 4 million pixels into the screen, or 300 pixels per inch.

The Write version of the Excite tablets usher in productivity apps that give the feel of a “pen and paper” to the tablet. The TruePen that comes along has 1,024 pressure points. We get to know that the Pro and White models use the Tegra 4 processor, while the Excite Pure uses Tegra 3.

The Excite Pure will be available for purchase at a price of $299, while Excite Pro and Excite Write are priced $499 and $599 respectively. The tablets will start selling on June 25 and can be bought from ToshibaDirect.com and from major retailers in July.

Meanwhile, we also hear the company is launching a new series of laptops and desktop powered by  Intel’s Haswell-based microprocessor technology. Sty tuned for more on that.
