Reviews for the Toshiba Folio 100

Toshiba Folio 100 review: First look
Source: It Pro English
We find it a little odd that Toshiba is using Android on the Folio 100, while using Windows 7 on the Libretto W100. Nevertheless, the Folio could be very promising if app developers take advantage of its features, such as the Tegra processor and the HDMI and USB ports.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily.
