You know the Toshiba Folio 100, right? One of the few interesting tablets of 2010, which is available for sale in Europe. Or should I say ‘was’ selling in Europe? All because of a Flash bug that resulted in high return rates for this Tegra 2 tablet. Apparently Toshiba is aware of the problems and is working hard on solving them. Till then, retail chain stores like Dixon, Currys and PC World have stopped selling it, or increased the price from 329£ to 999£ to prevent further sales, and you guessed right, further returns from customers.
I bet now Steve Jobs is saying “told you so”, given his adversity towards Flash on mobile devices and even on laptops, as Apple has stopped bundling Adobe Flash installed on its Mac OS X machines. Hope Toshiba solves this faster and does something about Android Marketplace support, as it would be ashamed for such a nice tablet (from hardware standpoint) to go to waste.
