There are two reasons why many of you will not purchase a new Nexus 9, first is it may be too large for your needs, and the second is price, as it does come at a premium. Those two reasons are often enough to allow you to consider an Android alternative, and one model that could prove very popular as a gift at this time of year is the Toshiba AT7C8 7-inch Excite Go tablet.
This Toshiba 8GB 7″ Android 4.4 KitKat Excite Go Tablet, which is how many retail stores describe it on their websites is powered by an Intel processor and comes with features that offers an immersive experience.
Before we take a look at this tablets specs we thought you might want to see a review first, and we have embedded one for your viewing enjoyment below. The video runs for a little over 7 minutes and is an unboxing and review, which means you not only get to see what comes in the box, but how the tablet performs when turned on.
What we did find interesting was the fact the guy in the video turned the device on, yet still had time to discuss all the ports and connections on the outside and it just about booted up in time. We ask that you watch the video in full, although not until you have read through some of its specs and features.
We already said this model comes with a 7-inch display and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, which is not all that much out of date. We do know an Intel Atom Processor Z3735G powers it, and while most places don’t seem to detail what its clock speed is, we think it is 1.33GHz.
There is just 8GB of storage, although can be expanded with a card reader. It is clear there is a pattern going on with these specifications, as they are pretty mediocre, although not surprising considering some places will be selling this for less than $40 later this month.
If you are thinking of buying this tablet, then just remember it comes with no rear-facing camera and just a poor-performing webcam.
It is up to you if you wish to go for this model, but if you are looking for something with a bit more power, then maybe the new range of Kindle Fire HDs or Nexus 7 would be more to your liking?
