Toshiba Outs Folio 100 Tablet

Well if it's not 3D, it's tablets...

Toshiba has just announced a new 10.1in tablet device that uses the much vaunted Nvidia Tegra 2 platform, giving it the ablility to playback 1080p content. As well as video playback on the device, it also has HDMI out so can be used to play movies on your TV and thanks to the low power usage of Tegra, it will still give you up to seven hours battery life.

The screen has a resolution of 1,024 x 600, uses LCD technology, and is multi-touch as well. It also has a 1.3 megapixel webcam and features all the usual connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G. Like Samsung's Tab, it wil run Android 2.2 but will also include a load of custom Toshiba software additions.

Of course, we've seen lots of tablets before yet few of them have actually made it to market but Toshiba has said the Folio 100 will be hitting European shelves in the fourth quarter of this year for €399. So you, never know your luck, you may yet find one of these under your Christmas tree.

In the mean time, we'll be following up with a hands-on article very shortly.

Well if that is the European price (Under 400 UK Price too?!), seems a lot more reasonable than early Galaxy Tab prices that have been banded about. Won't get excited until the full specs and usability become more apparent.

Any mention on the weight of this device? Surely it's just as important as any other specification listed?
