Toshiba Folio 100

Dixon’s Retail, the UK-based consumer electronics vendor pulled out Toshiba’s Folio 100 tablet from its stores owing to high return rates. The Folio started getting shipped this month and now the tablet faces a big question mark over its future. The tablet has been pulled out from PC World stores as well as PC World’s retail website.

Dixon’s spokesperson confirmed the development and noted Dixon’s intent to avoid bad experience to its customers of a product which is actually very good. He also confirmed that they are working with Toshiba to resolve the issue very soon.

Toshiba Europe on the other hand had no clue about the reason behind high return rates though it is aware of the pullout by Dixon’s.

The 10.1 inch Folio is powered by Froyo, Android 2.2. With a powerful Nvidia Tegra chip including a dual-core ARM processor underneath, it also had a graphics core which can play HD video up to 1080p. Toshiba priced the tablet in the range of €399 and €529 (US$546 and $723) depending on the features.

Toshiba faces a stiff test as it gears up to put its tablet on track to compete with Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Dell Streak and others. Toshiba confirmed that the tablet is not being launched in the US at the moment and that it has other plans.
