Toshiba Excite 7.7 Android Tablet Video Review
      06/23/12 04:50 PM

The Toshiba Excite 7.7 is easily one of the nicest small Android tablets that have crossed my desk. It has a 7.7" AMOLED display that's absolutely lovely and it's the first 7" class Android tablet to have the quad core Tegra 3 CPU. The premium design with a metal casing, Gorilla Glass beveled glass is easy on the eyes, and the 7.7 looks like a miniature Toshiba Excite 10. They have the same design cues, textured metal back and controls.

The tablet goes on sale June 24 for $449 (16 gig). That's a high price for a 7" class tablet, and in fact it's the same price as the Toshiba Excite 10. I know many of you expect smaller tablets to be less expensive, and Toshiba's pricing is surprising. That said, it's currently the best tablet on the market. The 0.3", 13 ounce tablet is thin, light and stylish. But it's not just good looks: the 1.3GHz Tegra 3 quad core is every bit as fast here as on 10" tablets. The AMOLED display is alive with color yet not unnatural looking and it's fantastic for watching movies.

The tablet has stereo speakers, a front 2MP camera and a 5MP rear camera. It has single band WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth and a GPS. There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion and a micro USB port that supports USB host (host cable not included). That means you can use USB flash drives (FAT32 not NTFS), portable hard drives, keyboards, mice and game controllers with the Excite 7.7.

Here's our Toshiba Excite 7.7 video review. Our full review will follow next week.
