A dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP4430 CPU powers the Xcite 10 (also known as the AT200), which similar to the processor in the Kindle Fire, RIM Playbook and a number of high-end smartphones.

According to Toshiba, the UI will be quite close to stock Android with little bloatware apps, which should definitely satisfy users who are especially annoyed of pre-installed software.

The Xcite 10 will launch before the end of this quarter for $529 and $599 for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively. Although the device will initially ship with Honeycomb, an OTA update to ICS is expected later this year. Check out the video below for a quick preview of the file manager and media player.
