The Toshiba Folio 100 we got our mitts on at IFA will be arriving in just a couple of weeks, Graeme Simons, the Business Manager for Toshiba Europe, has told Electricpig. The Toshiba Folio 100, a Froyo powered tablet, will be shipping in the second week of November. The Toshiba Folio 100 won’t break the bank either, and is priced at £330. For the moment it’s just Wi-fi and Bluetooth, but a 3G version will be arriving in Q1 2011, so sometime after new year, which will be £40-£50 more expensive.
For the first three weeks after launch the Toshiba Folio 100 will be an exclusive to Dixons in the UK, after which it will be stocked by Tesco, Staples and John Lewis. Simons said that the reason for choosing these retailers was because Toshiba wanted consumers to be able to see the product and try it out, so Toshiba chose stores that could give demos and have demo copies out on the floor.
