Continuing with its 25th anniversary of laptop sales, Toshiba has premiered the AC100 netbook - the company's first Android-based machine.

The 10.1-inch netbook is a highly portable machine, weighing just 1.9-pounds and boasting a staggering seven days of standby battery life. If you're working consistently, expect up to eight hours at a time per full charge.

Otherwise, the Toshiba AC100 looks to be a fairly standard machine, with only 512MB of DDR2 memory and a 1,024 x 600 resolution on that 10.1-inch TruBrite, LED-backlit display. Here's what else the AC100 includes:

  • NVIDIA Tegra 250 processor
  • Android 2.1 OS
  • Up to 32GB SSD
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth v2.1 +EDR
  • Optional 3G
  • 1.3-megapixel webcam
  • SD/MMC card reader
  • Connectivity: USB 2.0, Mini USB, HDMI, Audio-out/Microphone-in combo

Designed with a sleek black and orange color scheme, the AC100 will become available this August. Pricing is unknown so far.
