For connectivity, the JournE tablet offers Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) and runs Internet Explorer 6. Using an external USB dongle, the tablet can also support 3.5G mobile Web browsing. The tablet comes ready to access Picasa, YouTube, and Flickr, and has the ability to send instant messages. An on-screen keyboard appears as necessary. Windows Multimedia Player 9.0 is also included for viewing pictures and videos and playing music.
During the demo, the JournE tablet showed three rows of shortcut icons with five in each row. Each icon provides access to an application or service. One of these icons provides access to a Toshiba Store that will offer both free and paid apps and widgets for the device. There’s also a variety of Windows Embedded software applications available, so the store should provide many choices.
