Toshiba Folio 100 tablet launched as iPad competitor

Android 2.2 tablet coming from Toshiba

Toshiba has followed in the footsteps of Samsung unveiling its own Android 2.2, FroYo, touting tablet device during its IFA conference as the Toshiba Folio 100 is finally given a public outing.

Larger than Samsung’s 7-inch offering, Toshiba’s iPad competitor measures in 10.1-inches and will sport a USB 2.0 port, integrated Wi-Fi, SD card slot, HDMI port and multitouch capacitive touchscreen when it hits UK shelves this October priced £329.

With a lower price and USB, HMDI and SD ports, the Toshiba Folio 100 trumps the Apple iPad in many areas including Apple’s ultimate bugbear, Flash. In keeping with FroYo’s capabilities, the Folio 100 will be fully compatible with Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for rich, optimised, uninhibited web browsing.

The Folio 100’s front-facing 1.3-megapixel webcam makes video calling possible, a trait that will be boosted later in the year when Toshiba is set to launch a 3G supporting edition of its new Folio tablet. Powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor chip and with up to seven hours battery life, Toshiba’s Folio will pack 16GB of internal flash storage further expandable via the device’s SD slot.

At just 14mm thick and 760g in weight the Folio 100 is not excessively bulky despite its impressively large 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600p screen that supports pinch to zoom and swipe controls.
