    Will the Excite at300 see anymore updates.

    I would like to know is the Excite tablets going to get 4.2.2 or any of the newer updates soon?

    I'm thinking that only Toshiba will have that answer.
    If you call or email them (and get a response) please post back.

    If I remember well, AT300 have been updated to 4.1 few weeks after release of the AT300SE.
    Good work from Toshiba, pleasing costumers with minimal work as both tablets basically share the same hardware.

    The next Excite Pure will run on JB 4.2, right ?
    So, as its specifications are similar to AT300-AT300SE (Tegra 3 chip, ...), I think Toshiba should do the same thing, in the same situation.

    If they don't, they would deserve a massive Internet bashing from angry customers, blaming Toshiba for planned obsolescence behaviour by not updating products.
    I don't think Toshiba will take the risk as they are still seakink for recognition on the tablet market ...

    Does my analyse seem coherent for you, people ?

    One can hope. But, I'm not holding my breath and would be pleasantly surprised should it happen. They may be using a different chipset and won't take the effort to tweak the kernel.

    We know from past experience that Toshiba could care less what the Internet outcry is. They have had deaf ears to the many voices (some extremely loud & angry) on their own support forum regarding the HC to ICS debacle with the THRiVE.

    I think the Google official life-cycle of Android hardware support was only 18 months.

    Well, the chipset is the same : Tegra 3.

    Then we could hope android 5 : AT300SE is what? Only 6 months old...

    Then, it's not suprising that they have difficulties to enter Android market, dispraising customers.

    Anyway, Facebook would be a more efficient medium for bashing...

    I would never 'hope' anything when it comes to Toshiba.

    Check out their Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/ToshibaUSA

    You'll find that they are incredibly immune to public opinion.
    Facebook is no exception.....

    The only way that ICS for the Thrive was accomplished was due to a few very vocal and supportive 'insiders'. Otherwise the public outcry fell on increasingly deaf ears.

    While the device may be Tegra 3, there is more than one chipset design for Tegra 3 devices. Not to mention the other hardware components (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc.) that may be different. This means, different kernel coding.

    There are 4 different Tegra 3 chipsets. AT300 and AT300SE are listed as using T30L witch is the only Tegra 3 chipset at 1.2/1.3 Ghz.
    The new Pure tab is sometime reported as 1.3GHz (making it a T30L chipset), and sometimes reported as 1.6 GHz CPU clock on a Tegra 3 chip, so probably using a T33 (the faster Tegra 3 available).
    Do someone found what is exactly is the Tegra 3 chipset

    I know, it is a bit useless chasing for this kind of informations, concidering that the other hardware elements are probably different anyway, and that Toshiba doesn't realy care about customers...
