Toshiba had announced its Android smartbook way back in June and it was quite eagerly awaited by Android fans. Today, Toshiba has launched the AC100 Android Smartbook in the UK.
The Toshiba AC100 runs Android 2.1 and has a 10.1 inch TFT display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It has a heavily customized UI by Toshiba tailored for netbook usage. It is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform (1 GHz Tegra 250 SoC) and has 512 MB DDR2 RAM. It has an 8 GB internal SSD and comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR connectivity. A 3G version of the AC100 is also in the works. Besides these, it has a 1.3 MP webcam and an HDMI out.
The Toshiba AC100 is priced at GBP 290 ($449). With Windows 7 netbooks sporting much better hardware configurations like the Samsung N150 and the Asus EEE PC 1001P starting at $299, I doubt the Toshiba AC100 is going to be a hit, especially at this price.
