Toshiba AC100 Smartbook Runs Android 2.1

Toshiba has announced a new smartbook called the Toshiba AC100. The AC100 runs Android 2.1 making it capable of waking up in less than a second from standby mode.

The AC100 from Toshiba has a clamshell form factor. It has a 10.1 inch screen and has been designed to be used to consume media from the internet along with providing the ability to edit documents, emails and other messages.

The battery life on the Toshiba AC100 allows it to stay in standby mode for up to seven days. Whilst in use you’lll see about 8 hours of usage on a single charge.

“Our smart companion, the AC100, is a member of the mobile internet device segment that combines the best of two product categories: like a smartphone, it is always on, whilst offering the convenience of a clamshell netbook with a bigger screen and a full size keyboard,” says Thomas Teckentrup, General Manager, Product, Strategy and Development Division, Computer Systems Group EMEA. It is targeted at users who utilise several devices but still desire an easy-to use, slim and light smart companion that can be taken almost everywhere and that offers superior usability to that of smartphones.
