Toshiba has launched it Folio 100 tablet at the IFA, Berlin.

The following is a brief run through of its specs (Source: Engadget)

There’s a 1024 x 600 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, Tegra 2 under the hood, 16GB of built-in storage, SD card expansion, HDMI out, 802.11n WiFi, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, and Android 2.2 with Flash 10.1 running on top of it all. Toshiba claims 7 hours of battery of “regular” use (65% web browsing, 10% video playback, 25% standby), and everything is packed into a 0.55-inch thick form factor that weighs 1.7 pounds.

The device did not receive a favourable preview by the Engadget team. The build quality of the device, Toshiba’s suboptimal UI, a poor display and the lack of an Android Marketplace were a few of the cited reasons for the poor impression of the device.

This does not bode well for Toshiba’s first device in the slate tablet category.
