Toshiba has been off the radar in the Android world for awhile now, but that doesn’t mean they’ve lost commitment to their older devices. The Excite 7.7 is getting the mighty bump to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, something that struck us as a little shocking at this point. But, all that matters is that the few who bought the Excite will be receiving Project Butter and all its smooth goodness.
It doesn’t stop there, with the update bringing the hybrid UI, as found on the Nexus 7. This is more ideal for smaller tablets, and a smart move on Toshiba’s part. The update weighs in at a hefty 348MB, so be sure that you’ve got a half hour and are near a plug before updating. Excite 7.7 owners, head to Settings to grab the update now, and be sure to let us know how it is in the comments below.
