Toshiba Folio 100 pulled from PC World after sky-high returns rate? [Update: Yanked “temporarily”]

Toshiba Folio 100 pulled from PC World after sky-high returns rate? [Update: Yanked “temporarily”]

The Toshiba Folio 100 was meant to be the company's bruising attack on the iPad, but it seems first impressions - from both buyers and retailers - haven't been too hot. Engadget caught wind that UK retailer PC World had yanked the Android slate and so headed down to check out the shelves; they found a Folio 100, heavily overpriced at £999.99 and apparently not worth a penny of it.

Toshiba Folio 100 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba Folio 100 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba launched their Folio 100 smartpad earlier this week, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the Android 2.2 Froyo table at IFA 2010 today.  The second significant Android slate of the day - after we played with the smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab earlier on - it's a bigger beast too, with a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen (with 4-point multitouch) and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset like its AC100 sibling.  The good news is that it's a reasonably decent slate; the bad is that it looks like it won't be reaching the US.

Toshiba Tegra 2 tablet makes the pre-CES rounds

Toshiba Tegra 2 tablet makes the pre-CES rounds

The good news is that we came across Toshiba's Tegra 2 based tablet at CES 2011 during the company's pre-show event; the bad news is that they were flaunting it amidst some very poor lighting. Running Android 2.2 Froyo, since Honeycomb isn't ready to play on its NVIDIA CPU, the unnamed slate is surprisingly slim in the hands and the display - thankfully, given the patchy performance of the Folio 100's screen - is reasonably impressive.

Toshiba Planning on Bringing Tablets to US and Japan, Other Markets in 2011

CEATEC is still going on in Japan, so announcements are still managing to trickle out of the event. This time around, it's Toshiba's turn to make an announcement about the tablet market, and how the company will be a part of it in the coming months. Despite the fact that the Folio 100 was just unveiled last month, Toshiba wanted to make it known that their present in the tablet market will be felt not only in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (where it's believed the Folio 100 will initially launch, and perhaps remain), but that they will be heading to the United States and Japan by the early months of 2011.
