CES 2012 has set off at a great pace, with Tech giants like Acer and Toshiba unveiling their new launches first. Both have had a great chunk out of the market with their new latest products. Toshiba started off the CES 2012 by unveiling the world’s thinnest tablet called the Toshiba Excite X10. Keep reading to know more about it.
This super thin and super light tablet measures just 0.3 inches, has a 10.1 inch screen and it weighs only 1.2 lb. The tablet runs on Android operating system, but it is not yet announced that whether it will run Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich at its launch which is believed to be sometime in the mid of Q1 2012.
It didn’t look like Toshiba could bring anything better than the hefty and dull looking Toshiba Thrive, but the company has certainly hit gold with this sexy looking tablet.
The Excite X10 has a gorilla glass and a unique channel trim, accompanied by a great looking magnesium alloy back (no more creaky plastic).
And that is not all, Toshiba has also incorporated a number of input and output ports in the X10’s thin profile. There are micro-SD, Micro USB, Micro HDMI and, of course an audio jack. The iPad 2, claimed the thinnest tablet by 0.4 inches until now, is beaten by this Toshiba beauty which is just 0.3 inch thin.

The device has only a Wi-Fi version for now — there is no word on the 3G or 4G versions of it. As far as pricing is concerned, it will sell for $529 for 16 GB version, while 32GB tablet is available for $599.
So what do you think about Toshiba’s new approach to the tablet market?
