Toshiba Folio 100 Specifications (pa3895e-1et1)

Toshiba Folio 100 Highlights (product version pa3895e-1et1)

Toshiba Folio 100

The Toshiba Folio 100 is one of Toshiba's offerings to the tablet PC or hand held computer world (after the Toshiba Thrive). The device is meant to be more than just an eReader it can handle most of the requirements of the average computer user. The onboard Wi-Fi (802.11) allows the user to access the internet for email, web browsing and even programs like Skype (made easy with the 1.3 MB integrated webcam).

More Folio 100 Information

 

Web browsing is made easy with the voice recognition software that allows you to speak and have the words added to the search bar instead of needing to type the words. This voice recognition software also allows you to speak to add words into input boxes of forms. Of course you are also able to use the touch screen typing pad to enter information also. The voice recognition does a very good job for me so I rarely use the typing pad.

4-finger multi-touch widescreen display Works extremely well for people like me with less than perfect eyesight. Web pages, eBooks, PDFs, Google Maps and just about everything else can be quickly resized by touching the screen with more than one finger (finger and thumb works best for me) and spreading them or bringing them together depending on whether you wish to enlarge or shrink what is on the screen.

Folio 100 Multimedia

The 16 GB onboard hard drive is room to hold quite a few movies (most are around 700 MB), but I prefer to use 16-32 GB SD cards to hold most of my movies and change the cards out as I need them. There is also a USB 2.0 port for adding other accessories. I have tried my USB modem however it is incompatible with the android system so in addition to use my modem for the internet on the go I need to also have a portable USB cable router/hub.

While this Toshiba Folio 100 is designed for multimedia use it has one glaring downfall. The volume for both the onboard stereo speakers and the headphone jack is very low. Turned all the way up it is difficult to hear if you are in a somewhat noisy environment like an airplane of public location. For this it is best to use a battery operated amplifier for your head set. While these are small, cheap and readily available Toshiba really needs to fix this problem it is a constant complaint in many of the electronics forums.

The NVIDIA® Tegra™ 250 Mobile Processor and the Android operating system work well together and have a quick response snapping through applications and running movies smoothly. However the unit is prone to locking up on start up and occasionally when running some of the more intensive applications like when reading a large book with the PFD reader.

Folio 100 eReader Capabilities

I have tried a few eReader softwares on the Toshiba tablet. The ones I prefer are the Amazon Kindle software and the Adobe PDF software. Moon Reader also performed well but I prefer the features of the other two.

Folio 100 User Complaints

There are a few drawbacks to the Toshiba Folio 100, as mentioned above there is a problem with the tablet locking up at times, often at startup. The lack of volume for the multimedia applications is a source of irritation. And the Folio 100 is a bit heavier than most other eReaders. While the weight is not extreme, when you are reading a book and holding it for long periods of time you do start to feel it some. This is no doubt partially due to the larger brighter screen offered by this tablet, so especially if you have vision requirements that make a large screen a necessity, one person’s drawback is an advantage for someone else.
