The device comes with a selection of applications pre-installed, including Opera Mobile web browser, FBReader (e-book reader), Adobe Flash 10.1 and Fring, an app that combines with the built-in webcam to enable video calls.

Also included is Toshiba Market Place, the company's new cloud-based portal service offering downloadable content. Music Place offers a wide range of music from 7Digital.com, and Radio Place provides access to internet radio stations.

Powering Folio 10 is a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, and there's 16GB of onboard storage – further expandable via SD card.
