New Details About Toshiba Folio 100 iPad Rival
Some interesting new details have emerged about Toshiba's forthcoming iPad rival. The first tidbit? The device's name is a good start. According to the Financial Times of London, Toshiba has christened its soon-to-be released tablet the Folio 100.
Samsung and Toshiba are expected to lead a tablet charge at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin on Thursday, hours after a San Francisco media event where an annual update of Apple’s iPod range is expected.
Side by side with the grand unveiling of the Folio 100 will be Samsung's Galaxy Tab. While no release dates have been set for either tablet, IFA will all but certainly provide our first glimpse at the iPad rivals that, to put it modestly, have their work cut out for them. With better than 3 million iPads already in consumer hands, Apple has more than just a lock on the tablet market. For now, it runs the entire table. And capturing a respectable chunk of the market won't be an easy task - not even for industry heavyweights like Samsung and Toshiba. But it is possible. And the battle may begin sooner than we realize.

1 megapixel camera is a joke not to mention the android market is almost as funny.

^also note it is a 1 megapixel WEBCAM. As in front-facing video camera. I dont even think the front facing camera on the iphone 4 is 1 megapixel. On the Evo 4g though the front cam is pretty signifigent
VGA-quality photos and video at up to 30 frames per second with the front camera

I agree with you on the market. Android is ways behind the app store. I'm not saying that it's the worst but it's not the best either. For my needs it lacks. Yes u get facebook and Twitter, etc. But games and some other random things it lacks a lot. The 1 megapixel camera well depends on the quality. I don't know if I'm correct but I know there's a htc phone and a motorola that have 8 megapixel camera and they are still not as good as the 5 from the iPhone 4. So depends on how good it is. Still we have to realize it's a front facing one. For web chat so no one can say it's really bad until we see the quality of that megapixel.

Can't wait for a really good window's based pad to come out. Just bought the ipad and love it. But competition is what makes people push the envelope. Would love apple to have to release things right off the bat instead of waiting till the second version to do what should be on the first.

I see Apple file a lawsuit, just wondering when.

My Youtube/iph0ne27 review videos are based on these Android based tablets and also one with a front facing camera. Not all people can afford the ipad (including me)

OH, that joke made my day, ha ha ha ha ........... good one
Even if Microsuck had a ten year head start they still wouldn't have a properly working portable device. Windows mobile 6 was buggy rubbish and mobile 7, has anyone seen it yet? Where is it? Google make the better mobile os out of ALL of them, so far. When chrome is released microsuck had better get their skates on.

^lol. The only purpose of a windows tablet is to hackintosh it and put mac OS X on it. But even doing that the tablet will run the operating system at slower than netbook speed.
The PalmPad with WebOS will be only thing that can be halfway decent when compared to the ipad. Scaled up crappy android java based bull will like **** on a tablet. Still love my 64 gb wifi-only ipad (:... Just wish i didnt have to pay $700 for it
