Toshiba JournE Multimedia Touch Tablet Announced
over everyone with their new JournE Touch Multimedia Tablet. The JournE
tablet features a 17-inch 16:9 resistive touchscreen with LED
backlighting and a stylus for non touch-optimized apps, adds a brushed
aluminum body and will come in several colors to match your style.
It has a wide range of codecs under the hood (H.264, DivX and WMV),
comes with WiFi connectivity and access to online services such as
YouTube and Flickr. For browsing, there is Internet Explorer running on
Windows CE 6.0 Pro.
Despite being only 14mm thick and weighing around 400 grams, Toshiba
JournE packs quite a punch and is able to deliver 1080p video over an
HDMI plug in its dock. It has 1GB of built-in storage that can be
expanded via an SD slot or through external storage connected via USB.
The Toshiba JournE Touch will set you back 250 Euro (some $360 at
today's rate) and will go on sale in Europe by the end of this year with
other regions following early next year. Although more expensive than
most netbooks, we definitely think it's justified by its feature set,
and should be much cheaper than what the Apple Tablet would cost if/when
