Toshiba Folio 100 tablet launches

We heard rumour of this some weeks back, but Toshiba has now made the Folio 100 tablet official.

Yes, that's right, yet another wannabe iPad beater and another tablet using Android as its platform - in this case a 10.1-inch tablet packing Android 2.2.

That obviously means Flash is included from the off, along with a multi-touch screen, the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, Wi-Fi, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. Don't worry, there will eventually be a 3G model to go for too. You'll also find 16GB of on-board memory, an SD slot for bumping up the storage, HDMI and a 1.3-megapixel webcam to aid any VoIP calls. Indeed, there's a pre-installed app to get you going out of the box with video calling.

On the face of it, there might not be enough stand-out features there to give Apple sleepless nights, but it does look like a competitor, especially when you throw in Toshiba's reputation. Look out for it before the end of the year, with a price of around £329. Yes, it certainly undercuts the iPad on price.
