Toshiba is going big, small and traditional in expanding its line of Excite Android tablets.

The range of sizes includes devices with new thin and light designs with aluminum shells, as well as Corning’s Gorilla Glass displays designed for durabilty and quad-core processors.

Toshiba also said the three tablets, the Excite 10, Excite 13 and Excite 7.7, will come preloaded with Android 4.0, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. 

“One size does not fit all, so we are carefully considering how and where people are using tablets and designing form factors to best suit various needs,” said Carl Pinto, VP of product development a Toshiba America Information Systems. 

While portability is a key virtue of tablets Toshiba is going a bit against the grain with the Excite 13. The tablet features an LED Backlit display with 10-finger touch support, a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio and 1600x900 native resolution, which the company notes is “perfect” for watching HD movies and videos. 

But Toshiba also said it hasn’t sacrificed battery efficiency as the Excite 13 is expected to deliver up to 13 hours of battery life and seven days of standby. Also included are Micro USB, Micro HDMI ports and a full-size SD card slot for syncing and sharing content.

The Excite 10 will be available in May for $450 (16GB), $530 (32GB), and $650 (64GB)

The Excite 7.7 will be available in June for $500 (16GB) and $580 (32GB)

The jumbo Excite 13 will be available in June for $650 (32GB) and $750 (64GB)
