Just how thin do you want your tablet to be? Is 7.7mm thin? Well, that’s exactly what Toshiba promises with its new Toshiba Excite X10 which it’s showcasing at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.

As well as being ultra slim, it’s also lightweight at 0.54kg and features a 10.1 inch (1280x800 resolution) IPS display, a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4420 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and two cameras (five megapixel and two megapixel.) It also sports built-in speakers, a micro-HDMI, micro-USB 2.0, and a microSD card slot.

Due to be released this quarter, priced at $529 for the 16GB and $600 for the 32GB version in the US, it’s currently unknown whether the Toshiba’s new slate will sport the new Android operating system

The Excite 10 is a very nice looking tablet, but with the quad-core Transformer Prime currently available at around about the same price, Toshiba is probably a little ambitious with its price point. Nonetheless, it’s a move in the right direction for the Tokyo based manufacturer, who has so far failed to penetrate the tablet market.

Hmmm. X10 is the name my Sony Ericsson Android phone has. Couldn't they have come up with something different (Or at least over 2 years old!).
Sounds good to me :) It's clearly going to be android, unless we are really really really lucky and HP or RIM decide to licence WebOS or QNX to them :) Big shame for those of us not so keen on the ‘droid, but then again do I really need a 3rd tablet…no, no I don’t.
