All this Android tablet talk here recently has made us want to get our hands on a lot of these devices, and that time is finally here. Toshiba’s Folio 100 compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is one huge device. With that being said, we are a tad bit disappointed that it will not make it to the US. Beside that point, the tablet has a 10 inch display with 4 finger muliti-touch, and is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset.
Though the device is big, it is very slim and wide screen movies and videos look beautiful on it. We did notice, on the bigger screen that Android was not completely ready for the large tablet prime time, however Toshiba has provided their workarounds to make the tablet more user friendly. Getting into the specifications, the Folio 100 is equipped with 16GB of internal storage, SD card slot, full size and mini USB ports, 3.5mm headphone jack, HDMI port, along with a web cam on front.
The back has a texturized grip to help you hold on to it and the battery life is supposed to last you around 7 hours. The Folio 100 will launch in Q4 of this year with Android 2.2, with a mention of it possibly being upgraded to 3.0 as early as Q1 of next year. The Folio will be priced at £329 ($505) and we can only hope that Toshiba might change their mind later and consider bringing this to the US market.
