Toshiba Thrive Gets Early Release, In Stores Now
Whether or not you are into Toshiba laptops, the new Toshiba Thrive seems like something to rant about. Originally scheduled to arrive on July 10th, the tablet has already been spotted at multiple Best Buy stores. You can drive to your local Best Buy and pick one up today!
Currently, there are only 16GB and 32GB models for sale. The 16GB model costs $479 and we’re not sure when the 8GB model will swing by, but if you’re on a tight budget, you might want to wait it out.
For nearly $500, you get a 10.1″ display running at a 1200 x 800 pixel resolution, a Tegra 2 processor, operating at 1GHz (dual core), 1GB of DDR2 memory, and a 5MP/2MP rear and front-facing camera.
The device operates on none other than Android Honeycomb and is fully equipped with a SD card reader, Bluetooth 3.0+ hookup, and a screen rotation lock switch.
It also features the latest swype technology that lets you ‘type’ ultra fast by swiping your finger to formulate words. If you end up picking one up today, do let us know your first impressions at www.facebook.com/techmento or on Twitter @ techmento. We always love to hear your thoughts.
