Toshiba has pushed out the promised firmware update for the Folio 100 tablet
, with update v.2.2.5.0053 expected to address the responsiveness and multimedia processing issues which prompted retailer PC World to yank the slate
from shelves. According to The Tech Blog
, the new firmware does indeed address much of the lag.
However, reports from xda-developers
suggest that this isn't quite enough to bring the Folio 100 fully up to scratch, with the tablet still prone to going into deep sleep mode and demanding a reboot to get it working once more. The new firmware also lacks the Flash Player 10.1 plugin, which has to be installed separately.
1) screen/soft-touch responsiveness
2) lag fixes
3) Most importantly Pinch-and-Zoom capability for web-browsing and others.
4) Improved viewability (I think)
5) Smoother video/audio processing.
