Toshiba Excite X10 – 10.1" tablet that's 7.7mm thick

It looks like Toshiba has finally designed a winner in the tablet world. This lovely thing is its new Excite X10 Android tablet, which has just been revealed overnight at the 2012 CES tech event in Las Vegas. It’s a standard 10.1″ sized unit with a 1280×800 resolution IPS display, a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4420 dual-core processor, plus it has dual cameras (5MP and 2MP) and 1GB of RAM.

All bordering on the ordinary on the tech side of things, but it’s very slim and lovely, with Toshiba somehow managing to fit all of the above into a case just 7.7mm thick/thin:


The Excite X10 has been given a US launch window of “Q1 2012″ with prices starting at $529 for a model with 16GB of internal storage space. It may ship withy Android 4.0 if there’s enough time, otherwise it’ll arrive with Android 3.2 and a promise.
