Toshiba Excite Go 7″ Android Tablet Powered by Intel Atom Quad Core Processor Sells for $110

If you still think that only products based on ARM can be inexpensive, Toshiba Excite Go might change your mind. The latest Toshiba tablet is somewhat similar to HP 7 Plus with a quad core AllWinner A31 SoC and a 7″ display with a resolution of 1024×600, but instead it features an Intel Atom quad core processor, and sells for just $10 more at $110 (MSRP), but CNET reports it might even sell for just $99.

Toshiba_Excite_GoThe complete specs have not been released, but here’s what we do know, and/or can speculate with educated guesses and pictures from Engadget:

  • SoC – Intel Atom “Bay Trail” Quad core SoC. Probably one of the cheapest Bay Trail-T, so either Atom Z3735F or Z3735G both listed for $17 (Tray price). Z3735F supports up to 1Gb RAM, Z3735G up to 2GB RAM. Both are clocked at 1.33 GHz, and up to 1.83 GHz (Burst frequency), and have a 2.2W TDP.
  • System Memory – Unknown, but most probably 1GB RAM
  • Storage – 16 GB flash + microSDXC card slot up to 128GB
  • Display – 7″ touchscreen, 1024×600 resolution
  • Camera – Front camera only
  • Audio – 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack, speaker
  • USB – micro USB jack
  • Battery – Up to 8 hours of battery life during “general use” or up to 6.5 hours while playing videos.
  • Misc – Power, and volume +/- buttons
  • Weight – About 355 grams

Beside an allegedly faster SoC compared to HP 7 Plus, Excite Go features a 16 GB Flash instead of 8 GB on the ARM based model, but  drops the rear camera.

Toshiba’s tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and should be available in July.

    Any word if it has any type of video out? Cheap Bay Trail KitKat with Video Out would rock

    @Someone from the other side
    I can’t see any micro HDMI / HDMI connector on the pictures shown on Engadget, and with that price I’d be surprised if it supports MHL via micro USB…
