Toshiba Announces Ultra Cheap Android Tablet for $110

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

Toshiba's newest entry level tablets cover both Android and Windows 8.1.

Alongside three new convertible laptops, Toshiba has announced three new tablets. Two of these are Windows 8.1-based tablets while the third is a low-cost Android tablet called the Excite Go. The Excite Go is a 7-inch device with a 1024 x 600 resolution, a quad-core Atom CPU and 8 GB of storage. It also supports up to 128 GB via SDXC card. This device is going head to head with the likes of the Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire with a price of $110. Toshiba says this device will hit shelves in early July, though nothing more specific than that for the moment.

Toshiba also introduced the Encore 2 in 8- and 10-inch models. Both run Windows 8.1 and feature quad-core Intel Atom processors, up to 2 GB of RAM, 1280 x 800 resolution panels, up to 10 hours of battery (8 hours of video playback), and up to 64 GB of storage (again, expandable to 128 GB via MicroSD). Each tablet is 0.4 inches thick. The 10-inch Encore 2 weighs in at 19.75 ounces, while the 8-inch model is a little lighter at 14.07 ounces. The 8-inch model starts at $199 and the 10-inch model starts at $249. Like the Android-powered Excite Go, they're scheduled for arrival in early July.
