The Excite 7.7 has a MicroSD card slot (which supports up to MicroSDXC cards) and a Micro-USB On-The-Go port on the bottom, along with a conveniently placed (for landscape use) headphone jack. It also has a 2-megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with flash, plus a proprietary docking connector for charging. The connector is larger and bulkier than most, as on previous Toshiba tablets; however, the unit appeared to charge more quickly in my hands-on tests (formal results and full battery life tests still to come).
Toshiba hasn't customized Android 4.0 much on the Excite 7.7, but the company has preinstalled some handy widget icons on the home screen; these widgets group related apps together for easy access. The company also tosses in a slew of useful apps and a handful of games to get you started.
The Toshiba Excite 7.7's zippy performance, light weight, and terrific display make for great usability. Now, if only the price of admission to this particular tablet ride weren't so high.
