It looks like ASUS isn't the only company that's decided to use the Computex stage to unveil a slew of new Android hardware, as Toshiba today announced a trio of new tablets. All three models fall under the company's "Excite" brand and are powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Here's the rundown on all three, courtesy of Engadget and LaptopMag:

  • Excite Pure: 10.1-inch 1280x800 display, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 3-megapixel rear-facing shooter, 16GB storage, microSD card slot, micro-HDMI, 1GB RAM and a $299.99 price tag
  • Excite Pro: 10.1-inch 2560x1600 screen, quad-core Tegra 4 processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front-facing shooter, Harmon Kardon speakers, 32GB storage, microSD slot, 2GB RAM, priced at $499.99
  • Excite Write: 10.1-inch 2560x1600 display, 8-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front shooters, quad-core Tegra 4 chip, 32GB storage, microSD slot, 2GB RAM, Harmon Kardon speakers, Wacom digitizer that will work with the bundled TruNote and TruCapture notetaking apps, $599.99 price tag

Toshiba is a name that we've seen pop up every now and again in the ever-crowded Android tablet world, and while the company has released several different slates to date, we've yet to really see one particular model hit it big with consumers. We'll just have to wait until their launch on June 25 to see if one of these new Excite models can make an impact, but it's obvious that Toshiba is trying to hit several different markets at once with a low-cost tablet, a higher-end model and a stylus-equipped slate. Do any of these new Toshiba tablets sound Excite-ing to you?
