Price and Release Date for Folio 100: Toshiba’s Android Tablet

By Updated on

Just over a month ago, Jamie Pert brought you details and a video review of the Folio 100 tablet PC from Toshiba. According to Jennifer Allan from electricpig.co.uk, an official release date has now been revealed.

The date this device starts to ship will be from around the second week in November. However, it is only the Folio 100 with integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that will be arriving this year, as the version with built-in 3G is due sometime in the first quarter of 2011.

As from the launch date and for three weeks after, the Toshiba Folio 100 will only be available at Dixons. After that time, you will then be able to find it at Tesco, Staples and John Lewis.

This Froyo Tablet will be priced at £330 for the first launched version, and if you go for the 3G one coming next year, you may need to add as much as an extra £50. What Tablet PC will you buy?

    GBP330 will be too much for this device. Its price should be comparable to the Toshiba AC 100 which has most of its components common with the folio (Tegra2, 512MB of RAM…etc).

    I got one.. and returned after 1 hour!
    The device is very slow and the virtual keyboard doesn't work properly.
    The toshibe app market is a Joke! Be aware that this device is banned from google app market!
    Be aware and try it before you buy it
