Toshiba is one of the big companies that took over the floor of CES 2012 and announced the Excite X10 tablet, that runs Android 4.0 and sports a waistline slimmer than the one of the iPad. The maker of this new slate claims that we’re dealing here with the thinnest tablet on the market. Here’s Toshiba Excite X10 with its incredible 7.7mm waistline.

Honestly speaking, I’ve seen 7.7mm tablets before, or at least close to this thickness, such as the Galaxy Tab 7.7, but none of them had a 10 inch display. The Excite X10 features a 10.1 inch AutoBrite display, a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS of choice and uses Gorilla Glass for protection. The device offers a 16:10 wide screen viewing experience and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.

Phil Osako, Director of Product Marketing at Toshiba is claiming that the Excite X10 aims at replicating the PC experience, so it’s only logical that the tablet comes with a micro HDMI port, USB, a microSD card slot and there’s also a 5MP camera at the rear. Upfront there’s a 2MP cam and Toshiba also included the proprietary Video Enhancement Technology on this gizmo, as well as Exclusive Adaptive Display Technology and speakers with SRS.

The device offers 8 hours of continuous video playback and has a price tag of $529 for the 16GB version or $599 for the 32GB one.
