Toshiba Folio 100

Toshiba's Folio 100 tablet is now available to buy in the UK. The 10.1-inch touchscreen device runs Android 2.2 and is priced at £329.

The tablet has a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, slightly larger than the 9.7-inch screen on the Apple iPad, and weighs 760g. At £329 this device is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Tab or Apple iPad.

We first got our hands on this tablet PC back in September at IFA - see our first impressions in the Toshiba Folio 100 tablet video.

The Folio 100 runs on the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and has 16GB of storage capacity, expandable to 32GB with a SD memory card. The tablet supports Flash 10.1 for video playback and has a range of connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0. 

According to Toshiba the Folio 100's battery should last for seven hours, based on 65% web browsing, 10% video playback and 25% standby time.
