Toshiba's AC100 Android smartbook on sale in UK

Toshiba Android smartbook goes live

Toshiba's UK wing today finally started taking orders for its first Android device, the AC100. Its smartbook unveiled in June is available in its Wi-Fi-only version for 293 ($451). The core model ships with 8GB of storage, although Toshiba's site incorrectly mentions 128GB.

All versions of the 10-inch, Android 2.1 ultraportable run on NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 250, giving it HD support both on its main display and through HDMI, as well as 512MB of RAM. Choosing ARM instead of Intel gives the AC100 eight hours of battery life even with a light 1.9-pound weight.

A 3G version known as the 10U is still in development but hasn't become available so far. It should be fundamentally the same with the exception of an HSPA modem; the networking may only support the 2,100MHz band for full speed but will roam in North America on quad-band GSM and EDGE.
