Toshiba's AC100-10U is a netbook-like device powered by Nvidia's Tegra technology and running Google's smartphone OS – Android 2.1. Aimed at those after a very portable internet experience, we have mixed feelings about the device. At...

If you were expecting a symbiosis of mobile phone and netbook due to the Android and Nvidia Tegra hardware, you'll be bitterly disappointed. No touchscreen, no telephony, no Bluetooth, no outdoor suitable display and an extremely limited App...

The Android-based Toshiba AC100 netbook is let down by a frustrating and confusing interface. We can't recommend it over the horde of standard netbooks on the...

The AC100 is an intriguing alternative to a regular netbook, but Android doesn't work as well here as it does on a phone....

The beautifully designed and executed hardware is very close to my ideal netbook, and it's hardly an exaggeration to say that I'm heart-broken by Toshiba's cocked-up Android implementation. The best one can hope for is a firmware rescue from...

We have very mixed feelings about the Toshiba AC100. We love the long battery life, the slim and lightweight build and the comfortable keyboard. The smooth 1080p video playback is impressive for such an affordable netbook. Unfortunately, the Android...

A good idea, but Android is perhaps best suited to a touchscreen experience - here it's far too...

After a period of comparative dullness, the mobile PC sector has become rather intriguing in recent months. Much of this intrigue can be attributed to the and similar devices stirring up the mix, but the Toshiba AC100 is another product that...

The Toshiba AC100 looks great and usability scores are high thanks to a super keyboard. But Android just doesn't work in this format. Without the capacity for document editing it doesn't function well as a portable computer, and without the...

Companion devices come in all shapes and sizes, from big-screen smartphones through tablets to netbooks and ultraportables, but Toshiba is hoping that by borrowing a little of each they’ll find a gap in the market. The Toshiba AC100 looks like a...

There's no denying that over the last couple of years we've witnessed a shift in the tech landscape. There's been the rise of the iPhone, the birth of the netbook, introduction of Android and, most recently, the coming of the tablet. All...

To be honest, when Toshiba's 10.1-inch AC100 smartbook was revealed last month it looked like one nice clamshell, but we're not really all that surprised that Hi-tech.mail.ru found it to be rather lacking after putting it through the paces. The...

International Review By CNET France on 60

Petit astéroïde dans la galaxie netbook, l’AC100 se distingue en de nombreux points des autres prétendants au titre de machine mobile par excellence. D’un point de vu matériel c’est quasiment un sans faute mais la...

Android har tagit smartphone-marknaden med storm. Vi har också sett ett tidigare försök att göra netbook-datorer med Android, men det var innan systemet knappt var moget ens för smartphone, och resultatet var allt annat än...

Android har tagit smartphonemarknaden med storm, men Google har större ambitioner med sitt operativsystem. Vi har sett en del försök med Android-baserade bärbara och stationära mediaspelare, och även sett en del...

I denne uge tager vi et kig på Toshiba AC100 - en netbook, der kører på Android-styresystemet, som du måske kender fra din telefon. Vi tog den med ud i felten for at se, hvordan den klarer sig i den virkelige verden.AC100 er en...
