The Toshiba Folio 100 was launched not too long ago. And considering the success that the Libretto W100 met with, no body thought life would come to a full circle so soon for the Folio 100. But then, that’s exactly what has happened so that if you aspire to get hold on one of these devices, well you are too late. Try doing that on the PC World site and you will instead be taken to the Galaxy Tab page.
Surprising it sure is considering the tablet did make quite a few heads turn in the IFA event held in Berlin. Even more surprising is the fact that the current crop of Folio 100s that were put on sale turned out to be dismal in performance and looks which is probably why it has hit a discordant note with buyers. Disappointed customers bringing back the device were far outnumbering those who had lined up to actually buy the device.
Other issues that too contributed to a lackluster show of the Folio 100 is its pixel density that is just too inferior. Viewing angles too are extremely narrow while the quality of the plastic used is another things that pissed off its users.
So with the device now off shelf, let’s see what Toshiba’s response is to the entire episode.
