Toshiba's Excite X10 tablet has been floating around the world for a while, but it is finally coming to the U.S. — and boy, will it turn some heads.
Why? Well, mostly because it's tough to ignore the X10's thin and tall looks. The ten-inch tablet has a thickness of only 0.3 inches after all. (Oh, and it's reasonably light as well — about 1.18 pounds.)
My obsession with the X10's looks aside, let's talk specs.
The X10's display — which is covered in super tough Corning Gorilla Glass — is backlit, offers ten-finger multi-touch support, and has a 1280 x 800 resolution. The tablet has a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor (that's 1.2 GHz of horsepower), comes in 16GB and 32GB configurations, includes a 2MP front-facing camera, has a 5MP rear-facing camera (with an LED flash), and offers an assortment of ports including Micro USB and Micro HDMI.
Oh, and there are also a gyroscope, an accelerometer and GPS capabilities as well as eCompass and ambient light sensors.
The Toshiba Excite X10 will set you back $530 if you're getting the 16Gb model and $600 if you opt for the 32GB version. It should become available in the first quarter of 2012.
