Toshiba Excite 7.7 Android Tablet

Toshiba Excite 7.7 Android Tablet Price in the Philippines, Features, and Other Details: The Excite 7.7 is a tablet computer from Toshiba and the smallest member of the company’s Excite family. The other members of the line are the medium sized Toshiba Excite 10 and the bigger Toshiba Excite 13. Another special thing about the Excite 7.7 is that it is the only one among the Excite family to have an AMOLED screen. This, on top of the quad core Tegra 3 processor, and an operating system toting the latest technology from Android – version 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich.

Physically, the Toshiba Excite 7.7 measures 8 inches wide and 5.31 inches when held in landscape. Its thickness comes down right to only one fourth of an inch. Also, it weighs a mere 0.77 pounds, very light in the hand and easy to maneuver for day-to-day tasks. Because of its thin profile and lightness, it can easily be carried around in a backpack, or in a large shoulder bag. Also, the device has a wide enough bezel so the tablet can be held in a smallish hand without accidentally brushing up the touch screen display.

The back of the Toshiba Excite 7.7 is constructed out of a silver gray aluminum that has been embedded with small circles to give it texture. This imbues the device with a good grip, but at the same time makes it look cheaper than what its price tag merits. Still the faux metal finish is nonetheless aesthetically pleasing and blends well with the other features of the tablet.


On the top edge of the Toshiba Excite 7.7 is a power button, a screen rotation lock and unlock toggle switch, a volume rocker, and a small opening for the internal microphone. On the right side of the device is a 3.5mm headphone jack, a port for a Micro-USB, and a microSD card slot. The bottom on the other hand contains two output speakers and the power/docking connector. Unfortunately there is no Micro-HDMI port on the tab so that it can’t be connected to a larger display. On the back of the device and at the top right corner is a small hole for the device’s 5 MP camera that is also supported by a LED flash. Going over to the front, one can also find a 2 MP shooter on the top left corner.

The screen of the Toshiba Excite 7.7 is covered by a durable single sheet of Corning Gorilla glass that keeps it away from scratches and untoward breakage due to stress. The screen, as mentioned, is bordered by decently thick bezel that is decorated with some glitters that are only and barely visible under sunlight. In total, the multi-touch capability is able to support as much as 10 fingers, so that one can type on the screen using all of his or her fingers. As for the display, the device has obviously a 7.7-inch screen. It has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10. Since the display is AMOLED, images, menu icons, and texts are all crisp, with colors that are vibrant and richly saturated.

Performance-wise, the Toshiba Excite 7.7 comes out impressively, thanks mainly to its quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor as well as GeForce graphics chip. Going from one menu to another presents almost no lag time and overall applications and other renderings run as smoothly as possible. Games and videos are played seamlessly and they are accessed very quickly. Audio quality on the other hand seems to be perfectly adequate. As for the camera, the quality is acceptable although it can still be improved upon. Videos can be taken smoothly as well with automatic picking up of audio.

Overall, the Toshiba Excite 7.7 is a compact, thin, and fast tablet computer. For the Wi-Fi enabled version that has 16 GB worth of memory, the device is sold at around $500.
