Thinnest (and lightest) 10-inch tablets

How thin can tablets get? CNET looks at the thinnest 10-inch tablets so far.

You don't get much thinner than this. No, seriously, the Toshiba Excite 10 LE is currently the thinnest tablet there is.

Even if your tablet appreciation never deviates from pragmatic, functionality concerns, you'll at least have to admit that a thin tablet has its advantages. Thin tablets are usually sleeker, sexier, and easier to handle. And lately, they've begun to include more features like microSD, Micro-HDMI, and even ridiculously crazy high-resolution screens.
By their nature of being so thin, all tablets on this list are the lightest 10-inch tablets you've even seen. However, today we'll be focusing only on the girth of the tablets.
Since it's no longer Apple's flagship tablet, I decided not to include the iPad 2 in the official list, but it's included in this handy chart for comparison's sake.
