The Toshiba Excite 10, or Toshiba AT305, is a tablet that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 10.1-inch screen. It features dual cameras, Wi-Fi, plenty of pre-installed apps, and NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor. It can be fitted with a SIM card and used to make calls, but doesn’t come with many call management features since it isn’t primarily a tablet. The Excite 10 can also be used for file sharing via Bluetooth or to watch videos through any compatible TV via the built-in HDMI port.

There are both front and rear cameras with which you can also capture videos in 3GP, 3GPP, and MP4 formats. You will only get modest picture and video quality though and should not expect the sensors on the cameras to serve as a proper point-and-shoot replacement. All of the above-mentioned features are packed inside a case that weighs just a hair under 600 grams, which is lighter than the Apple iPad.

All in all, the Excite 10 offers most of the features that people look for in a tablet. Still, it somehow fails to impress. The tablet competition is pretty stiff nowadays and it simply doesn’t bring anything exciting to the table. It gives solid performance with its components but the experience could have been much better with an improved screen or better audio quality. It can only be recommended for users who won’t complain about the hefty price tag while enduring the sub-par performance of the screen.

Super-thin 7-inch tablet with solid performance but its screen isn't great

from The Verge (about 1 year ago)

The competition in this screen size is steep, thanks to solid offerings from Asus, Samsung, Acer and others. The Excite 10 is a nice option, but it doesn't offer anything that sets it apart. Its screen isn't great, and though its performance is solid it's equalled by devices like the Transformer Pad... More

The competition in this screen size is steep, thanks to solid offerings from Asus, Samsung, Acer and others. The Excite 10 is a nice option, but it doesn't offer anything that sets it apart.

Light and comfortable to hold, sleek-looking design, and good-looking screen

from Computer Shopper (about 1 year ago)

Aside from its somewhat subpar video-capture capabilities, the Excite 10 is in every way an excellent, well-performing slate. We were especially impressed with its stellar sound system—after turning on all the special SRS enhancements, that is. Without them, sound reproduction was at best mediocre.... More

Smooth performance but has poor camera and display suffers from backlight bleeding

from Engadget (about 1 year ago)

Toshiba hasn't exactly positioned the Excite 10 as a high-end tablet, and its $450 starting price is par for the course for a mid-range product. We'd choose the Excite 10 over the $530 Excite 10 LE in a heartbeat, as it offers much better performance and Ice Cream Sandwich in a package that's only slightly... More

Solid aluminum body and fast quad-core processor

from PhoneArena (about 1 year ago)

Above all, we have to admit that we truly love the direction that Toshiba has gone with this tablet, as it seemingly obliterated all remnants of the Toshiba Thrive from last year that has floated around in our heads. Donning a vastly better looking design combined with some muscle flexing hardware specs,... More

Vibrant display, excellent performance, and thin design that's easy to grip

from Laptop Magazine (about 1 year ago)

With its vibrant display, excellent performance, good port selection and expandable memory, the $449 Excite 10 is a much better value than the $529 Excite 10 LE. We also prefer this tablet's design to chunkier slates like the Ionica Tab A510. However, the mediocre camera and below-average battery life... More

Huge expandable memory slot, has fast Tegra 3-induced performance, a comfortable design, and Android 4.0 capabilities

from CNET (about 1 year ago)

The Extcite 10 comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions, starting at $450. That's the same price as the 32GB Acer Iconia Tab A510 and $70 more than the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 with 16GB. Releasing the Excite 10 at $450 with only 16GB of storage, clearly puts it at a price disadvantage compared to the... More

Thin, light and premium materials with fast quad core Tegra 3 and runs ICS

from Mobile Tech Review (about 1 year ago)

For those looking for a straight Android tablet rather than a convertible netbook style tablet, we can easily recommend the Toshiba Excite 10. It has the fastest CPU currently available in tablets and the latest OS. It's very fast and stable, and it's thin and light. As a premium product its materials... More

A very functional, fast tablet that feels fantastic in the hand

from Android Police (about 1 year ago)

Despite its downsides, the Excite 10 is actually a very nice tablet. It has a premium look and feel, solid performance, and some pretty fantastic and useful software tweaks. Of course, it's a bit on the pricey side compared to the competition, and the amount of light bleed on my review unit is absolutely... More
