The iPad 2 is 8.8 mm thick, in comparison. It sits on the "premium" shelf just above Toshiba's budget Thrive tablets.&nbsp; Perhaps the most killer feature of the X10 (besides its inconceivable waistline) is the fact that it includes a Micro USB port, a Micro HDMI port, and even an SD card slot. There's somehow also room for a dock connector like you might find on the iPad."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1326311663.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Thin tablets are in.&nbsp; Well, they have almost always been in since I cannot imagine anyone enjoying a thick tablet to cart around.&nbsp; The Excite X10 is the latest and thinnest tablet to come out, though it manages to pack some ports while keeping a svelte figure.&nbsp; While I personally like having ports to serve my every desire, I've noticed more friends going the wireless option like DLNA or AirPlay to satisfy most of their needs.&nbsp; When it comes to your electronic devices now, do you find less of a need for ports, or do they still play an important role for you?</p>

Toshiba seems to have really upped their game with this design, which still retaining more ports/slots than competing tablets. Wonder how good the screen is?
