Toshiba Folio 100 Firmware Upgrade 2.2.5.0053 Released

By Jamie Pert - Dec 30, 2010

If you own the Toshiba Folio 100 tablet you may have been dissatisfied with the touchscreen display functionality and overall performance, however a new firmware update has recently been rolled out which should improve things dramatically.

According to a recent article on TheTechBlog when you upgrade your Folio 100 to firmware version 2.2.5.0053 you should notice improved touch-screen responsiveness, less lag, better pinch-and-zoom capabilities, superior video/audio processing and perhaps enhanced viewability.

Back in November we suggested that both PCWorld and UK consumers were unhappy with the the Folio 100, hopefully this firmware update will make Folio 100 owners more satisfied, however I doubt it will show back up on PCWorld’s shelves.

With CES 2011 less than a week away and plenty of other Android tablets currently available on the market I wouldn’t recommend the Folio 100, there is no access to the Android Market, a lot of annoying bugs and a high price tag, I’m sure we will see something more impressive from Toshiba next week.

Do you own the Toshiba Folio 100? If so have you installed this latest firmware version? What improvements have you noticed?
