Toshiba launches Android-based MID - the AC100
Category : General 21 Jun 2010 04:37 AM | Insider News
Toshiba has announced this week the launch of its latest mobile internet device – the AC100.
Packing Android 2.1 but lacking touchscreen capabilities, Toshiba is calling the AC100 something that "combines Smartphone functionality with netbook usability." But cannot use this MID as a phone, as the actual Smartphone part is that it uses Android and has instant on capabilities.Its 10.1-inch screen is where the netbook part comes in.
The AC100 makes use of a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 250 Mobile Processor – which is great for a smartphone but rather low if you compare it to the standards of a normal netbook.
This is no normal netbook, however. It weighs just 870g and is 14mm at its thinnest point.In short, the AC100 is meant as a take-anywhere device which has a LED backlit screen, full-size keyboard and all the widgets that Android 2.1 allows.
Pre-installed on the AC100 is Documents to Go, which allows you to view Microsoft Office documents.
