Toshiba Thrive tablet may have you thinking twice about which to buy

| June 2, 2011 | Reply

Ok, another day another tablet huh? Yep, but this one is looking pretty nice. Some of the average specs are as follows:

10.1 inch 1280 x 800 display

5m rear, 2mp front camera

1ghz Tegra dual core processor

But here are some specs that i really liked:

1gig ram

ecompass with gps built in

full size usb and hdmi ports with resolution upconvert technology(it works quite well)

8 to 32 gig internal with full sd slot (read: cheap memory upgrade)

User replaceable back cover and replaceable battery

Haptic feedback and orientation lock button

Sounds nice doesn’t it? Lots of ram, easy upgrades and replaceable battery. Whats the price? 8gb $429, 16 gb $479, 32gb $579. When is it available? Not sure but pre-orders begin June 13th at Best Buy. I believe that will be the least expensive 16 and 32 gig tablet running 3.0. You can view the full spec sheet below.
