Toshiba Android powered AC100 netbook offers 8 hrs battery life

Toshiba Android netbook announced

Toshiba has served up its first Android-based netbook, the Toshiba AC100 running Android 2.1 on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset.

The 1080p-capable ultra-portable sports a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 screen (of the non touchy type, so keep your mitts off it), 8GB of SSD storage and an HDMI output for some big screen lulz.

Connectivity options are pretty abundant, with WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as standard, plus USB 2.0 and an SD card reader with built in 3G/WWAN being optional.

All the Android, all of the time

Naturally, the machine will be able to run all the usual Android apps – including Opera Mini, Fring and Documents To Go – with Toshiba bolting on its own custom launcher.

Battery life is pegged at a very decent 8hrs of normal use, with Toshiba promising a full week of standby.

There’s no mention of pricing as yet, but Tosh say their wee Android beastie should be slipping out of dock some time in August 2010.
