Toshiba announce new premium tablet for UK market
Premium specification tablet to make amends for defunct Folio 100.
After all the kerfuffle over Toshiba's under-priced-yet-under-powered Folio 100 tablet, it looks like Toshiba are ditching attempts to undercut Apple's iPad and are instead flinging themselves head-on into the high-end tablet game, announcing an as-yet-unnamed tablet boasting what they call "premium specifications".
Certainly, this nameless tablet contender looks to be no slouch on paper. It touts a 10.1-inch, 1200x800 pixel touchscreen, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and what Toshiba call "Adaptive Display Technology" - an inbuilt light sensor which tweaks the brightness of the display accordingly on the fly. Similar technological sorcery is also promised for the tablet's handling of sound, presumably using an inbuilt microphone to guage background noise.
