On June 10th, Toshiba’s new Excite 13 tablet will be available, but is the 13-inch screen too big to be a tablet?

Toshiba’s new Excite 13 tablet is now the largest Android tablet. With its huge 13-inch screen, this tablet is meant for home use, rather than other tablets that are used on the go. The tablet’s huge display is sharper than most Android tablets, but has a lower resolution than the new iPad’s Retina Display. The Excite 13 has a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor for quad-core power, a front and back camera, an SD card slot, a micro USB port and a micro HDMI port. This new tablet is available on June 10th, and can be purchased for $649 for the 32 GB model or $749 for the 64 GB model.

Personally, I think this was a great idea. Tablets are very popular right now and people will want bigger and better tablets. This tablet is meant for home use, so if you are looking to take and use it on the go, then I would suggest getting a smaller tablet. It would be possible to use on the go, but would be too big to use while standing. One feature I feel will make the tablet very popular is the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. This feature will be popular because this is a very current processor that can make internet browsing speeds up to two times faster, has console-quality gaming, and an HD display. One feature I don’t find useful is the back camera. I think this is useless because the tablet was meant to be used at home, not to taken place. The tablet is also just too large to be taking pictures with. It seems like it would be awkward to take pictures with due to its size.  Please share your opinions about this new 13-inch tablet.
