It's time for Toshiba to bring the fire with a real live working unit of the Excite 13-inch tablet at Pepcom during CTIA 2012.

The display is 13.3-inches of LCD with 1600 x 900 pixels placed upon it - 16:9 for an ideal media experience - if you love gigantic images right in front of your face, of course!
