Toshiba Folio 100 in the Practice Test

The Toshiba Folio 100 must point in the test, whether it is good as a slightly older model for competitive entry into the Tablet world.

The not quite bleeding tablet from Toshiba still opts for Android 2.2. The internal memory is 16 GB large and expandable via SD card. The device is connected to a PC via the Mini-USB port. Alternatively the files via USB on the Tablet come, because the tab also has a USB host port. The screen of the Folio 100 responded but not always as quickly as desired. Another drawback: large display is 10.1 inches while sharp and multi touch capable, but when the viewing angle is not optimal, the image quality suffers.

The Folio 100 equipped with a Tegra 2 processor do computing tasks relatively quickly. But compared to other entry-level models, you must use the four touch keys (search, back, home, menu) with emphasis, to trigger an action.
