*moan start*

I'm rather disappointed with Toshiba.

I've just rang their support line ( 0844 847 8944 for anyone else who wants to try and get some more information from them. ) and they've not a clue. It was an Indian Call Centre. No disrespect to them in that sense, but they're always the last to know anything. But when I asked, should I just return the unit as its not fit for purpose, she just responded with that's your choice. No attempt to apologies or offer any additional information.

The date of the 10th was only found on a few websites, with no really information on exactly who said it and when, or which year... so I guess we have to just wait, and wait, and wait...

There is the Toshiba Folio 100 Update Alert you can register for: http://79.125.123.128/ but so far I've not received anything from them.

I've got Launcher Pro installed which works really well. It has been a lot more responsive since I used that. but I do still get it freezing every so often.

The Browser is great, its just the solid Android 2.2 browser so I'd expect no less, plus Dolphin Browser works well too. I've had a few issues with the Gallery App, in that it crashed and freezes constantly, and the DNLA client is a little poor too. Videos are laggy, and it shows the wrong information for folder contents on several occasions.

Hopefully, the update will update these, and add proper hardware acceleration support and of course Flash support!

I guess this is just a test of now patient we are... I was impatient waiting for the Vega so for the Folio. I'm glad i did though, just the extra storage is a massive bonus. My Desire is always struggling for space, even with a lot of them installed on the SD card, the low Storage alert is always on...

However, should the Vega be working from day one, it will raise a few questions on why the Folio isn't updated!

And of course, there is the question of the Gingerbread update... the name Toshiba does mean that I fully expect them to update the OS, I just hope they don't disappoint!

FYI, the guys in XDA have been talking about the Tegra2 in the Viewsonic Gtab. One if the things to come out of that is that the T2 does _not_ implement the ARM Neon instruction set. Now this may sound bad but I actually think its good, Neon is all about specific instructions that speed up floating point (Kinda like SSE/MMX), and the T2's FPU is blazing all by itself. However most of the games that use the NDK will most likely be compiling for devices that do have ARM Neon instructions and hence the hard crash (this is probably what's up with flash as well) so this is good news in that it's likely that this explains most of the current batch of problems without resorting to "The opengles driver/lib is busted"

Could still be wrong, but I think this bodes well for the Folio.

Mine's in real danger of going back tomorrow if there's no hint of flash coming soon :rolleyes: Am very disappointed that there was an announcement by the Toshiba UK spokesguy for Wednesday, then nothing.

Otherwise I really like it, once its booted and settled down it runs lovely, and using the SlideME apps market thing lots of nice apps are available, including a nifty if somewhat glitchy 3D pool game, and a Tron lightcycle thingie.

I *wish* there was a shoutcast player, and a fullsize comic CBR/CBZ reader tho.

To be honest I'm thinking the same. I've used my Desire more than the Tosh at home. Been checking for the update every morning then turning the thing off. Played a pool game on it which was a bit choppy. Do we have up to 28 days to take it back? Would rather not have to but.....

XDA poster is stating that toshiba france has tweeted it will arrive on the 15th. That is my cut off for a return, I do like it but the flash thing is a bit too much.

Lots of people have taken them back, I would think that PCW/Currys would struggle to argue that it is fit for purpose or as described.

My version numbers match yours but no updates are available? Mine is rooted with Google Apps and Launcher Pro, but I don't think this should affect the update app.

I wonder if they were testing something on the live servers and you guys lucked out? Putting an update out for the Flash fix marked as 'Test' looks a bit suspicious to me.

As I posted earlier the latest tweet from "French Tosh" was the 15th for the Flash
