Toshiba Excite Pure is a decent budget tablet

Tablets
My name is Sarah Mitroff of CNET. And this is a first look at the Toshiba Excite Pure tablet. Toshiba launched 3 tablets in the summer of 2013. And the Toshiba Excite Pure is the budget of the bunch at $300. The 10-inch device has a polycarbonate body with a silver champagne color texture butt panel. It's thinner enough to hold comfortably in your hand and thick enough to [unk] so you don't have to be afraid to hand it to your kids. Along the left side of the tablet, there's a headphone jack, volume rocker, USB charging port. There's also a cover that hides a micro HDMI port and a micro SD card slot so that you can add more space to the tablet's built in 16 gigabytes of storage. On the top edge, there's a power button and 2 microphones. On the bottom left and right sides, you'll find the external speakers which produced strong and clear audio that's a not enough to hear over background noise. There's a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front bezel. The camera quality is poor but it'll get the job done if you needed to do a video chat. The biggest knock against the Excite here is its 10.1-inch, 1280x800 resolution LCD screen. That resolution is outdated for a tablet of this size since the iPad 4, the Nexus 10 and other modern tablets have much better screens. The display is also more reflective than many other tablets we tested, which makes it tough to see what's on the screen in broad daylight or if there's any light behind you. The tablet gets its name because it's running a pure version of Android Jellybean 4.2.1, meaning they are highly any modifications to the operating system from Toshiba. Inside, the Excite Pure has a 1.2 gigahertz Tegra 3 processor, a 12-core Nvidia graphics processor and 1 gigabyte of RAM. The older Tegra 3 processor can make the tablet laggy at times when opening apps or playing performance taxing games. But now they're gaining around the tablet is still snappy. HD video plays easily on the tablet, but the Blockbuster screen means video won't look as sharp as expected. Toshiba added a few features to improve video and audio quality and they're worth playing around with to find your [unk] or something. The Excite Pure solid plastic build in $300 price tag make it ideal for kids and families. You can read my full review of the tablet on cnet.com. And this has been Sarah Mitroff with the first look at the Toshiba Excite tablet.
