Toshiba just announced its latest Android tablet, a 7-inch slate that costs just over $100 and hits the market in early July. We got a chance to meet with the company and try out the new device last week.

The Excite Go is a sleek little tablet. At just 7-inches across with a weight of 12.5 ounces it’s easy to hold with one hand, though it’s a bit bulkier than the Nexus 7 (2013), which weighs just 10.23 ounces. Google’s stock Android tablet also offers an impressive 1920 x 1200-pixel display compared to Toshiba’s 1024 x 600-pixel resolution. That said, the Excite Go’s screen looked pretty sharp if a little glossy.

The back of Toshiba’s new Android tablet is made of textured grey plastic. It feels nice to the touch and offers a firm grip, but it definitely doesn’t scream high-end device. When you consider the Excite Go’s price, however, it all makes sense. At just $109.99 it’s more than $100 cheaper than the Nexus 7.

Under the hood the Excite Go packs a quad-core Intel Atom processor, 16GB of storage with microSD support up to 128GB (that’s one thing the Nexus 7 doesn’t offer), and an 8-hour battery. It also comes with Android 4.4, which should keep things running smoothly even after you load it up with apps and media. Of course, just because Toshiba’s new tablet runs the latest version of Android doesn’t mean it always will. Unlike Google’s Nexus lineup, there’s no guarantee the Excite Go will get the next version of Android until several months after it’s announced or longer.

As an added perk, Toshiba’s throwing in OfficeSuite Pro, which usually costs just $15. It’s not a huge deal, but a nice little bonus for anyone hoping to get some work done on their new tablet. Other than that you’ll get the usual access to Google Play along with the apps and widgets that come with it.

Overall the Excite Go is a solid device, and it may just be the best Android slates available today in the $100 price range. If you’re looking for a super cheap option Toshiba’s new tablet may be your best bet, though if you’re willing to pay a bit more the Nexus 7 is still our favorite mini Android slate on the market.
