There is no doubt that the tablets that have been introduced by Toshiba are one of the best in the market. For example; the tablet that we are going to review in today’s post is Toshiba Excite 13. There is no other company in the market that has introduced a 13 inch tablet so far.
The Best Things
This tablet has got an NIVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor that will help you play games easily. It has got Android 4.0 ICS OS and yes, the front facing camera is way better than you would expect. There is also a complete SD card slot in this tablet.
Not Very Best Things
Although the Toshiba Excite 13 is a 13inch tablet but it simply means that you cannot carry it everywhere with you. Due to huge screen size, majority of the apps and games don’t work very well because none of those apps have been designed for a 13-inch tablet. The price is $649 which is quite high for a normal user.
There are so many tablets and smartphones that we have reviewed but Toshiba Excite 13 is different of all. The main different is its huge size and huge screen of 13-inches. It simply means that this is not a portable tablet at all. However, you can use it easily by keeping it on your desk or while sitting on a couch. In my opinion, it is better suited to keep it a fixed place like near your bed for night reading or in your office to use as a second screen. Toshiba has definitely made a right decision to introduce Android tablet in the market a 13-inch tablet cannot get a lot of attention.
There are two main problems with this tablet. One is the size of it that makes it a semi stationary device and the second is its price. I cannot recommend any of my friends to buy this tablet because of its size and the price. Even if Toshiba reduced the price, very few people will want to buy this tablet because work is going crazy about 7 inch tablets at the moment.
There is a 1GB RAM in this tablet and the internal memory is 32GB. The rear camera is 5MP and there is also a front facing high quality camera as well. The weight of the tablet is 2.2 pounds and there are all important ports like MicroHDMI, MicroUSB and headphone jack port.
Apart from the big size, the battery life of this tablet is impressive. Not only the screen size is 13 inches but its battery can also last for 13 hours as well.
If you are looking for a change in your tablet collection then a 13-inch tablet is the way to go. However, if you are someone who would like to buy a tablet that is portable then you should not go for Toshiba Excite 13 at all.
Anyways, the decision is yours. Don’t forget to let us know what you think about this tablet and whether you will buy it or not?
