Toshiba will launch a tablet

In the shops by Christmas
Toshiba will release by year-end a tablet computer that runs on Android. Dubbed the Folio 100 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Toshiba is not sure if it will flog it in the US or Japan.

"The market for tablet devices like the iPad is attracting a lot of consumer attention," said the Toshiba spokeswoman and its worth noting that the Folio 100 is not Toshiba's first tablet. The outfit has a touch-screen tablet called the JournE Touch which started selling in March. The JournE Touch runs on Microsoft Windows but it seems that Toshiba has ditched that in favour of  Android.

The Folio 100 is equipped with a 10.1-inch multi-touch display and an embedded webcam. It will  support Adobe Flash for viewing videos on the Internet.

Toshiba expects the model that can connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi networks to sell for 399 euros.  The company has yet to decide when it will launch another model with 3G connectivity.
