Toshiba, which has been a silent player in the tablet industry, has just announced its own budget tablet called the Excite 7. This 7 inch tablet will go one on one with the likes of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX and the 2013 Nexus 7, which are giants in this segment. Priced at $170, Toshiba certainly has the right idea, but the specs sheet isn’t exactly high end.
The tablet comes with a 7 inch 1024×600 resolution display, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM, 3MP camera on the back, a 0.3MP front camera, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Stereo Speakers, a RockChip RK3188 quad core processor and a battery which last 13 hours with normal usage or 9 hours of continuous video playback.
It’s quite clear that the Excite 7 is not a beast with the hardware, but considering that it’s priced $60 less than the entry level Nexus 7, this might not be a bad bet after all. With the holidays approaching, the Excite 7 could be the perfect gift for your loved ones.
