Even though 10-inch Android models might wind up being the ultimate losers in the tablet wars , that hasn't stopped Toshiba from unleashing a new slate that will compete with the Google Nexus 1 0. For $349.99, the Excite 10 SE is $50 cheaper than the Nexus, though it's missing one of the Google's key features.

While the Nexus sports a Retina Display-like 2,560x1600 ultra-high-resolution screen, the Excite 10 SE only offers a 1,280x800 display. Otherwise, it comes with an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 16GB of capacity, front- and rear-facing cameras, and a microSD card slot for additional storage. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, though the Nexus 10 is already running Android 4.2.

So there's nothing particular noteworthy about the Excite 10 SE except the price, which undercuts both the Nexus 10 and the legacy iPad 2. Will that be enough to give it success in the marketplace? Would you buy it instead of the Nexus 10 because of the lower price? Let us know in the Talkback section below.
