This is the first Android tablet from Toshiba, and should it prove to be reasonably successful, I see no reason why we won’t be seeing a Folio 101 or Folio 110 somewhere in the very near future. In terms of this specific device, the Froyo-ness comes with Flash 10.1 support. That should help separate it a little more from the iPad too.more →
A first quick glimpse of Toshiba’s SmartPad was flaunted at a press conference late last month. Toshiba Australia Managing Director, Mark Whittard, quickly whipped it out in conclusion to the event. Obviously that peaked many eyebrows, so they gave us a taste.more →
Why stop at a single touchscreen for your portable tablet when you can go for two? That seems to be the core thinking behind the Toshiba Libretto W100 tablet and we’ve found the first unboxing video of the hotly anticipated device. Taking on a form factor very similar to the Microsoft Courier, the Libretto almost looks like a netbook where the physical keyboard has been replaced by another touchscreen display.more →
Securing data is important, particularly in a corporate environment where business communications can be critically confidential. Combustion is never an environmentally sound solution for handling confidential materials. Making this a bit more green, and simpler, is the new Wipe technology announced by Toshiba today. It works in tandem with the company’s Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) models.more →
When things blink and flash they are cool, when they are in a particular sequence with multiple colors and sound, they are rad. You could say the same for the KDDI Light Pool clamshell phone. On the outside, you’ll see a total of twenty-two LEDs in the shape of triangular windows arranged in a criss-crossing grid-like pattern. These LEDs are meant to display a touch of personality, lighting up in 100 different patterns sequenced with music. Patterns can indicate an incoming call, email, or whatever you prefer.more →
Why have just one touchscreen display, when you can have two? Taking a page out of Microsoft’s abandoned courier project, Toshiba gives it some thought with their libretto tablet concept PC. Formerly known as the libretto W100, you can expect this Smartbook, a new class of devices, to be loaded with full Windows 7 functionality – and tablet mods. Powered by an Intel Pentium processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 62GB SSD (that’s an odd size), 802.11b/g/gn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1MP webcam, and a 3D accelerometer for your gyroscopic pleasure.more →
How do you go about competing in the increasingly crowded mobile phone industry? You partner up with another big player to make an even bigger player. At least, that sounds like the strategy coming out of Japan. Based on what we hear, Fujitsu and Toshiba are currently in talks with one another about merging their mobile phone businesses. This comes from two independent sources and, if the merger goes through, it would result in Japan’s second largest cell phone maker. Sharp is still top dog.more →
Summer is just around the corner, so you’ll want to arm yourself with the most suitable equipment to capture those precious moments. Whether you’re at the beach or camping in the woods, the new Toshiba CAMILEO line of digital camcorders could be worth considering.
What I find somewhat fascinating is that, according to the press release, this is the first time that Toshiba America Information Systems has entered the US digital camcorder market.more →
You have a lot of important documents and invaluable photos on your computer, so it makes sense that you don’t want to lose them. You need a proper backup solution just in case something happens to go wrong with your primary computer Toshiba knows and has come forward with the Canvio.
Making the backup solution as simple and seamless as possible, the Toshiba Canvio boasts an impressive one terabyte of storage capacity. It’s a portable hard drive, so you can easily pack up and take that terabyte with you wherever you may go.more →
We are going old school on you with this one. Toshiba has come out with a portable DVD player that is really not what we would expect in this day in age. It’s the SD-P12DTK and has a top carrying handle like a lunch box, a stand that pops out of the back like a picture frame and a DVD slot on the back of a 12 inch LED backlit LCD screen.more →
Users speak into the phone, let the handset analyze what you’ve said, then it translates the sentence and repeats it, out loud, in the language requested speaking with inflections of that language.more →
Unless you look at the relatively underpowered netbook market, you can expect to pay quite a premium to get into the ultraportable notebook market. These are real laptops in slightly smaller packages. Toshiba is bucking the trend, you could say, with the unveiling of the Toshiba Satellite T100 series. These things are actually pretty cheap. […]more →
Around these parts, Toshiba probably isn’t the first name that comes to mind when you are considering a new smartphone. You’re much more likely to think about Apple, BlackBerry, or HTC perhaps. Even so, you may want to take a glimpse at the Toshiba TG01, since this phone comes with Snapdragon. As you may or […]more →
