Toshiba AC100 arrives in UK; no sign of 3G version

Toshiba are finally offering their AC100 MID, the Tegra 2 based smartbook running Android 2.1 with the company's own custom UI.  Priced at £292.52 including tax ($449), so far only the non-3G AC100-10Z model - with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and 8GB of flash storage - is available.

Its 3G sibling, the Toshiba AC100-10U, is still unavailable for order.  It will have a 2100MHz UMTS/HSPA modem for use in Europe, along with quadband GSM/EDGE.  Both get HDMI ports, 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 displays and 512MB of RAM.

The AC100 has also been listed at Amazon, though the retailer is still showing shipment delays of 1-2 months.  Last week at IFA 2010, Toshiba unveiled the Folio 100, a touchscreen slate version of the AC100 expected to be priced at £329 when it launches in a couple of months time.
