Toshiba AC100 boasts seven days standby life

by on21 June 2010

Android and Tegra based

Toshiba seems to have been keeping busy these days and the latest goodie to be announced is the Android-running, Tegra-based AC100.

The AC100 comes with a LED backlit, 1,024x600 panel and is the first Toshiba’s Android netbook. It’s being touted for up to eight hours of battery and seven days of standby life. We’re not sure why standby life matters, but as is usual with these numbers – the bigger, the better.

The AC100 is a 10.1 incher based on Nvidia’s 1GHz Tegra 250 SoC, has 512MB of 333MHz DDR2 RAM, 8GB of NAND flash memory and if that’s not enough - there’s also the SD/MMC card reader.

It features HDMI, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 802.11b/g/n, optional 3G, one USB and one mini USB port. Those keen on Skypeing will find this device to be pretty nice as it comes with 1.3MP webcam and an audio out/mic in combo socket.

The device measures 262mm x 190mm x 14mm-21mm (thinnest-thickest point) and weighs in at around 870g.

The company is still quiet on the pricing but the AC100 should be available sometime in August 2010. Until then, you can check out a hands-on preview here.
