Toshiba’s Android Powered Folio 100 Tablet Unleashed in IFA 2010

Written By Sam on 4 September 2010

Toshiba finally leaped into the tablet sphere with its first tablet – Folio 2010 announced in IFA 2010. Encompassing a capacitive multi-touch screen sporting a 1024×600 pixel resolution, this Android powered tablet measures about 10.1-inch across. First to utilize Nvidia’s Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip, Folio 2010 provides enhanced performance and is capable of handling 1080p playback (over a mini HDMI output) whilst maintaining the power draw check.

Features of Folio 2010 includes 16GB internal storage, improved battery life, SD/MMC card reader, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3G broadband, a 1.3mp webcam, accelerometer, DLNA compatibility and many pre-installed apps. Pre-installed apps include Opera Mobile web browser, Documents To Go office suite, Evernote, Fring, Adobe Flash 10.1, Toshiba media player, and the ebook reading app FBReader. Disappointingly, Folio 100 does not have access to the Google Android market. Toshiba’s Folio 100 is not yet out in regions like Europe, Middle East, Africa and is expected to be available during the fourth quarter of this year for a price around €399 ($512).
