Toshiba Tablet Shows Folio Tablet Again In Video


Sep 21, 2010

You might not remember the upcoming Android based tablet by Toshiba. While there is good reason for that, this video tries to bring it back to the spotlight.

The video below shows the Android tablet and some of its main selling points. The tablet has not nearly received as much press time as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, even though they were both announced on the same day. Both devices are great, but they have their strength and weakness. The Tab's weakness is... Samsung might over price it. This tablets might the lack of the Android Market, which Toshiba replaced with their own solution
Here's the spec sheet:

CPU: Nvidia Tegra 2
Display: 10.1-inch capacitive multitouch display with 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution, UI auto-rotate with accelerometer
OS: Customized Android 2.2
Storage: 16 GB onboard with SD expandability (no word on the limit)
Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Mobile Broadband (for certain models & countries), DLNA compatible, 1xminiHDMI®, 1xUSB 2.0 (client and hub), SD/MMC Card Reader
Camera: 1.3MP webcam
Battery life: 7 hours (65% web browsing, 10% video playback, 25% standby)
Weight: 760g
Size: 281mm x 181mm x 14mm
Software (excerpt): Opera Mobile, Toshiba Media Player, FBReader, Fring, Document to Go, Evernote.

The hardware specifications are very nice, and being a 10 inch display means it has 3" over the Tab and 1" over the Apple iPad. However, we wonder if it has solved its many software issues that were present during IFA (Androidandme).
