Earlier this month, Toshiba unveiled a 10.1” Andoird 2.2 tablet called the FOLIO 100. The device features an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, up to 16GB of internal storage, SD card expandability, HDMI out, a 1.3MP front facing camera, 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth.
Initial reports indicated that the FOLIO 100 will not be offered in the United States, but today the device made a surprising appearance on the FCC thanks to a filing by Atheros. While an FCC filing doesn’t guarantee that a product will make its way to the States, it is a good indicator that a product may eventually wind up on US shores. However, in today’s filing, the FOLIO 100’s label still bears the name of Toshiba’s European subsidiary, Toshiba Europe GMBH.
It would be nice to see more competition in the US tablet market, and we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
