Toshiba's 10" Tegra 2 tablet delivers stunning Android benchmark results

Toshiba's 10
Toshiba is no stranger to being a mobile chipset pioneer - its TG01 was the first smartphone on the market with the 1GHz Snapdragon chipset. Now out of the blue they come up with a 10" tablet, rumored to be called Folio 100, and powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 mobile platform. The newest Tegra is built with the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 architecture using the 45nm process, so it should deliver amazing performance with extended battery life, compared to even the most advanced chipsets currently on the market.

And deliver it does - over at Carrypad they measured 1911 on the Quadrant benchmark test, which, as you can see from the results graphic below, is more than 50% of what the fastest Android device in the stable - a Nexus One running modded Froyo - produced. Bear in mind that this prototype was still running Android 2.1., so the numbers are likely to increase further, and, on top of that, the benchmark test is not even optimized for a dual-core chipset.

The rest of the Toshiba Folio 100 specs are nothing to sniff at either - it should feature a capacitive screen with 1024x600 pixels of resolution, 3G, HDMI-out and 16GB of internal storage. The browsing speeds were snappy, and the results from the BencmarkPi application were three times faster than the average. The tablet also played full HD 1080p videos at 13mbps, and Raging Thunder 2 at the full WSVGA resolution without a hitch.

Here is the full list from running the Italian site that outed the specs through Google Translate:

* Operating System: Android 2.2
* Processor: Nvidia Tegra 2
* Screen: multitouch display 10.1 "widescreen WSVGA (1024x600pixel)
* Audio: 2 stereo speakers and microphone 0.5 W
* Storage: 16GB internal memory
* Networking: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G
* Ports: HDMI, USB 2.0 standard, USB 2.0 mini audio jack
* Card reader: SD (up to 32GB) MMC
* Battery: 1020mAh, 3.7V, 22600mWh. Up to 7 hours of life with mixed use (web browsing and video playback)
* Internet: Opera Mobile Browser with Flash 10.1
* Productivity: a suite of office applications, PDF reader, ebook reader and RSS aggregator
* Multimedia: 1.3 MP Webcam
* Dimensions: 281 x 181 x 14mm
* Weight: 760gr
* Accessories: IR transmitter and housing, dock and port replicator for Toshiba tablet

It was interesting to observe that the battery is just 1020mAh, but still managing to deliver seven hours of mixed use, which they define as web browsing and watching videos. It certainly looks like the claims for 30% better battery life with the A9 dual-core chipsets are not an exaggeration - and that's with a 10" screen! Toshiba's engineers have also managed less than 30 seconds of boot time, says the Italian source.

Texas Instruments also has an A9-based chipset that finished sampling, but there is not even a hint of a phone or tablet that will be using it. Thus, the rumored Toshiba Folio 100 tablet might turn out to be the first dual-core mobile device on the market when it hits shelves.

The Galaxy S with the lag fix can get over 1900 and it still runs 2.1. When it runs 2.2 it will probably be closer to 2500+. So, this tablet is no big deal really. :)

Right, but it has to power a 4" screen, this here has to power a lot more pixels, and the Quadrant doesn't take into account the performance boost from the dual-core technology plus it has been run on a pre-production device. Other than that there are Galaxy S Quadrant scores 2500+ already with the core fried to 1.2GHz and some major hacking, but that's not stable...

size of the screen has nothing to do with the resolution. My vibrant runs just under 2300 in quadrant. With the jit it should pop 3000...hopefully..lol since I was hoping for the tab in a10 inch form, if they slap a super amoled screen on this baby I would be very exited. And increase the darn battery. Yea it runs fine on the small battery, but why not get impressive results with a bigger one. No achilles heels darn it!! There's always something wrong!

This HAS to be better than the Galaxy S. I'm hoping the massive Streak is as good as reported so I can get rid of this GS.

I think that bench mark test is usless. I saw a video of a galaxy s scoring way lower than a nexus one but completed the test alot faster Also anything samsung is going to have a superamoled display. When it comes downt to it this toshiba is looking good but i really doubt it will have a us partner. That being said i realoly like the ti omap chips in the motorola better. I do think the ram or rom i forget needs to be higher in the motos. The samsung also kick ass on the gpu also. But i do regress i have verizon so i have little choice. Motorola htc or now samsung fascinate. I like htc but battery life is horrable. Moto has great battery life. Just waiting to see the samsung to use my two year on moto x or samsung. The x is awsome but screen is a tad big. I am rambling i know. Hurt my shoulder and just took a vicodin so know i am feeling great. but sorry for the ramble.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10" is coming out later this year. Sorry to burst your bubble but no other companies will be using a Super AMOLED screen, that's strictly Samsung use only. Having said that, the 7" form factor seems like a very compact and functional device that's usable in one hand. Let the swyping begin! :)
