Toshiba Folio 100 Goes On Sale For £329

Japanese manufacturer Toshiba has started to sell its Android tablet, the Folio 100, with Android OS 2.2 as from today.

The tablet comes with a 10.1-inch WSVGA capacitive touchscreen, an Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC, 16MB onboard storage, 512MB RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a webcam, HDMI, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth.

There's also a proprietary application marketplace from Toshiba, a music download service called Music Place and handled by 7Digital plus Opera Mobile, Fring, Evernote and some other useful apps.

With a suggested retail price of £329, it is £100 cheaper than the iPad 16GB non 3G and £200 less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Dixons already has it on preorder.

The Folio 100 is more than capable of playing Flash enabled videos thanks to Froyo's support for Flash 10.1. You can upgrade its internal capacity to 48GB with an optional 32GB microSD card.

Toshiba has already confirmed that it will launch a 3G version of the Folio 100 over the next few months but has yet to specify the price.

According to the manufacturer, the battery of the Folio 100 should last up to seven hours on average which is unspectacular compared to the iPad but in line with other Android tablets.
