Toshiba AC100 review: Android laptop tested

The Toshiba AC100 Android smart-book is a rare and welcome attempt by the Tosh to go against the tide of popular technology trends. While we sweep towards a world of tablets, tablets and yet more bleeding tablets, Toshiba’s standing by all the citizens who still like an honest to goodness QWERTY keyboard, and giving them all the other benefits of smartphone and tablet gear, like tiny form and power sipping, super quiet innards.

For all the buzz – and even litigation – around the phrase smart-book, this is actually the first mainstream model of its type to go on sale in the UK. Is it too late or has it come just in time to shake us to our senses? Read on and find out in our full Toshiba AC100 review.

Toshiba AC100 review: Android 2.1

Ever used an Android phone? You’ll know how to get around the Toshiba AC100 then. Toshiba has given it its own skin (with the biggest addition of a cursor – though you can turn it off) but the basics are still the same. You get five homescreens to slap shortcuts, folders and widgets on, and you can bring up a full app menu, or the menu options within apps with a rich click of the trackpad. But does it work well on this uncommon form factor? Find out in the software section of our Toshiba AC100 review right here.

Vodafone Mobile WiFi review

The Vodafone Mobile WiFi dongle has hit the UK, just weeks after Three’s own second gen mobile WiFi hotspot was unleashed. Just like, it shuns the USB port of older dongles in favour of creating its own impromptu WiFi hotspot for all your gadgets to leech off. Does it do it with aplomb, or should people simply opt for a phone that does the same? Find out in our full Vodafone Mobile WiFi review.

Magic Trackpad review

The Magic Trackpad may not be Apple’s attempt to completely replace the mouse, but when you can fit almost your entire hand on it, it’s easy to see how it could turf your USB rodent off your desk.
