Toshiba Folio 100 gets early reveal
Toshiba's previously leaked out Folio 100 tablet was confirmed today with a sighting at the company's IFA booth. The Android 2.2 tablet didn't have a specification sheet attached in Pocket-lint's viewing time but was clearly running a heavily customized front end with large buttons for Flickr photos, DailyMotion videos and 7digital's music service. Toshiba Places, also mentioned, may either be a social network or a name for some or all of its interface.
The 10-inch device is believed to be based on NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 250 and, by extension, could handle 1080p video through its HDMI output. It would have 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in, but it may skip on significant built-in storage in favor of SDHC cards. A 1.3-megapixel front camera is expected, and the device may use Opera Mobile with Flash 10.1 for its default browser rather than Google's own.
More details may be forthcoming later today, but Toshiba so far hasn't commented on the Folio 100's existence other than having said it would have an Android tablet by the end of the year.
