Toshiba has introduced its latest multi-media computer, Android tablet F100, at the IFA show in Germany on Thursday.

F100 aims to compete against the Apple iPad and similar devices from other major vendors.

The android tablet F100 has a 10.1-inch multi-touch display and an embedded webcam, having a diagonal screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, and runs on version 2.2 of Google’s Android operating system.

This is very essential since Folio 100 will be able to run Adobe Flash, a ubiquitous Web technology for playing video.

It said to be a key advantage over the iPad, which along with the iPhone cannot play Flash video.

The Folio 100 is also equipped with an SD card slot, and HDMI and USB 2.0 connectors. The device supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless, with a 3G model scheduled for the near future, according to Toshiba.

Its thickness is about a half inch thick, and weighs 1.7 pounds. A Nvidia Tegra 2 processor powers the graphics and the Folio has 16 GB of on-board storage.

Toshiba expects that F100 can connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi networks to sell for 399 euros. The company has yet to decide when it will launch another model with 3G connectivity.

Toshiba Corporation said F100 is scheduled to be sold in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in the fourth quarter, but its price has not been disclosed.

But it has yet to be decided whether to launch it in other regions such as the United States.

The F100 model is not Toshiba‘s first tablet computer. The Japanese company introduced a touch-screen tablet called the JournE Touch last September and started selling it in Europe in March.
