IFA, the biggest Consumer Electronics Show in Europe, is going on now. One of the biggest announcements is the Toshiba Folio 100, an Android OS-based tablet. Dragan Petric from Brighthand‘s sister site TabletPCReview was able to try out this upcoming model.
This 10-inch tablet is similar to the Apple iPad in size, but the software is far more like the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which was also unveiled at IFA.
It will come with Google’s Android OS 2.2 running on an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, and have a custom user interface Toshiba has created.
The Folio 100 is going to come equipped with an SD memory card slot, and HDMI and USB 2.0 ports.
It will also include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. At the moment, communication through 3G mobile networks has not been facilitated, but Toshiba representatives have revealed that such version of the tablet will be launched quite soon. It does not have GPS support, though.
