The first slate to run on Nvidia’s Tegra 4 processor, Toshiba’s Excite Pro is one of the strongest performing tablets we’ve tested to date. It’s also one of only a few new full-size (10.1-inch) Android slates we’ve seen over the past few months.
The Excite Pro joins the Nexus 10 as the second Android tablet with a Retina-like resolution of 2560 x 1600. The Pro's 10.1-inch LED-backlit TFT LCD screen displayed vivid colors with great contrast and fine details.
There's a standard 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for expansion using up to 64GB cards. Toshiba goes further than most when it comes to connectivity with microUSB, Micro-HDMI, 11.ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and optional 3G/4G/LTE network support. The only major thing missing is NFC.
The optional keyboard cover/stand costs you an extra £71, bringing the total cost up to £427 for the 16GB model. That’s a decent chunk of change more expensive than the Asus Transformer Book T100, which costs just £349 with the keyboard dock.
As a standalone 10.1-inch solo tablet the Excite Pro is slim, light, comfortable to hold and boasts an epic screen resolution. Even if we weren't excited at first, extended use of the Excite Pro has proven what a versatile tablet it can be.
