Toshiba's FOLIO 100 tablet ships to Europe
The Toshiba FOLIO 100 tablet is now on its way to European retailers, for €399 (US$560). The impressive tablet features a 10.1-inch display with 1024x600 resolution, and a custom-skin version of Android 2.2. The most exciting feature, however, might be the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, which powers the device's 1080p video output, while still offering 7 hours of battery life.

The FOLIO 100 offers what the Samsung Galaxy Tab can not: a more tailored experience for the tablet medium. While the Galaxy Tab will receive Android OS updates, the FOLIO offers other advantages as well. For one thing, the FOLIO features an integrated HDMI port, without needing a peripheral dock.

Other features include 16BG of memory, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, an SD slot, and optional 3G capability. It also includes a 1.3MP camera for video conferencing. The device ships with the Opera Mobile browser, the Documents to Go suite, and the FBReader e-book application. Owners can download additional apps and media from the Toshiba Market Place, which can be seen in the video below.

There's no mention of when it might arrive in North America, but we'll try our best to be patient.
