Toshiba AC100 Specifications and information

Toshiba AC100 alternatives

As with the Compaw Airlife 100, the AC100 looks to come without Google Market and Google apps. Availability is confirmed for the UK at a reasonable 299 pounds. As Android market develops, sideloading of apps onto the AC100 could prove interesting. If a 3.0 upgrade is planned for 2011 then this becomes a very interesting lightweight, low-cost 3G netbook.

Due for launch in UK - August 2010
