Irvine-based Toshiba America Information Systems’ Digital Products Division yesterday announced that its Excite 10 LE, reputed to be the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet, will be available for purchase this Tuesday. The product is less than 1/2 inch thick and weighs a little over 1 pound.

The Excite features a 10.1-inch display and is powered by a 1.2 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 multicore mobile processor. In addition, it’s equipped with dual-channel memory to offer smooth Web browsing and multitasking.

With an eight-hour battery life, the Toshiba tablet has front and back high-definition cameras, WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities and Android-friendly software.

“Excite 10 LE embodies what a luxury tablet should be,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development. “We have engineered this tablet with premium materials and components, given it elegant yet durable styling and more connectivity options than any other tablet in its class, while fitting everything into an astonishingly thin and light design.”

The tablet is priced at $530 for the 6 GB model and $600 for the 32 GB model. It will be available for purchase through select U.S. retailers.

Toshiba will also release a number of accessories for the tablet including, docking stations and cases.
