Toshiba Tablet to Excite

excite1-trademarkRecently, we reported that the Thrive was coming to Europe however there was a new and improved version of the Toshiba Android tablet on the horizon. According to sources at AndroidPolice, there will be a new follow-up Android tablet with a new name. That name will most likely be, The Excite. A tipster garnered the intel about the device, but there is also two other bits of corroborating evidence. One is the Trademark filing above, and the other is that Toshiba has bought up the following slew of domain names: ‘,’ ‘,’,’ ‘’ and ‘ and others. Incidentally, these three puzzle pieces were the exact same method that lead to the accurate deduction of the name for the Thrive as well.

The word is that this new tab will be an ultra-thin variant of the Thrive, but will still pack in all of the same features of the original, plus some other enhancements to go along with the svelt design. Here’s a breakdown:

  • 10.1 Inch
  • Ultra thin body – Possibly the biggest difference to the chunky Thrive right there.
  • MicroUSB
  • Micro HDMI
  • MicroSD ports
  • Brushed metal finish
  • Dual-core, 1.5-GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4460
  • 8 GB to 32 GB storage sizes
  • Multiple Colors again and more.
