Toshiba touts £329 Folio Android tablet

'Failio' spec?

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Do computer companies never learn from history? Clearly not, if Toshiba is anything to go by. Today, it launched its Android tablet, revealing the gadget is called Folio.

Does Toshiba not recall the Palm Foleo, quickly re-christened the Faileo by pundits?

Toshiba Folio 100

Still, the Tosh offering has an impressive non-fail spec: Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU/GPU; 10.1in, 600 x 1024 display; Android 2.2; 16GB of Flash storage with an SD card slot for more; HDMI output; 1.3Mp webcam.

The Folio 100 has 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and - if you're prepared to wait until Q1 2011 - 3G connectivity too.

Like Samsung's Galaxy Tab, the Folio is DLNA'd up for media streaming and sharing. It ships with Opera for browsing, and Documents To Go for reading and editing office docs.

Toshiba claimed the battery is good for seven hours, which is not impressive. The tablet weighs 760g and measures 281 x 181 x 14mm - so it's quite a chunky boy, too.

The price is £329 and it'll be out here next month. ®
