Toshiba Folio AS100 Android Tablet - Short Review

Just got Toshiba Folio AS100 from my boss, the first Android tablet from Toshiba.

First impression, it quite good design compared to another tablets. I only have around half hour to try the Folio

The weight is light, according to Toshiba's website, officially they said is around 760 gr, is more light than iPad. From the dimension, is not quite far from iPad. The different is the type of the screen which is the Folio come with wide screen mode.

The touch screen is more sensitive than the other android tablet product, specially if compared with the china's android tablet market. But still below the iPad technology.

One of the main disadvantage from Folio is there's no Android Market Application. That's made me difficult to try to download the application from officially.
Another weakness is camera quality. Even come with the 1.3 MP resolution, but still the result is very poor.
