The Toshiba Folio 100 tablet has just been announced at IFA 2010 in Berlin, and it has been confirmed to come with a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen display at 1024 x 600 resolution, an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core chipset with Android 2.1 as the operating system of choice instead of Android 2.2 as we reported earlier. The 1.3-megapixel camera as well as 16GB of internal memory are accurate though. Other specifications of the Folio 100 include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity, an HDMI output, a couple of built-in speakers and a microphone for communication purposes, a USB port and an SD memory card reader. The battery is touted to run for up to 7 hours before requiring a quick recharge, while its default browser is Opera Mobile with the ability to handle Adobe Flash. You will get preloaded software in the Folio 100 to help you get started right out of the box, but the two most important details – pricing and availability, are still as elusive as Osama bin Laden.
