We’re twitching at every movement outside our door while waiting for our own Toshiba AC100 today (Note: Possible live video review session tonight â€“ stay tuned.) but at least we’ve got something to keep us occupied in this unboxing video from Netbooknews today. It’s known as the Dynabook AZ in Japan but it’s the same device as the AC100 were expecting.
Some important things to note from the unboxing and the article:
1 â€“ Opera Mobile (not Mini) is included. Opera Mobile is not generally available for Android but Toshiba appear to have had it built specially for the AC100. Opera Mobile sounds like it is providing a better internet experience than the stock browser. I’m certainly a fan of Opera Mobile and will be interested to test it out.
2 â€“ There are indicator lamps on the outside of the device. Useful for notifications when closed (and online) (via JKKMobile, see fun video below.)
3 â€“ Toshiba are working on Android version 2.2 ‘soon’ which is excellent news.
4 â€“ 1080p H.264 worked
5 â€“ Browsing not as fast as on a netbook
Netbooknews â€“ AC100 Dynabook AZ unboxing (first impressions video there too but still being processed as I write this)
When you’ve watched the unboxing, check out the Toshiba AC100 marketing videos. They’re great! (and give us an indication of the effort that Toshiba is putting into this!)
We’ll be attempting to hold a live email notification rave in our live open review session. Stay tuned for details!
