Toshiba Thrive Tablet, Android, 10.1″

Tuesday, July 19th 2011. | Hardware News

The Toshiba Thrive Tablet PC arrived months overdue, but appears to be well worth the wait. With personalization options no other tablet offers, and a nice bank of features, the Thrive handles all multitasking and multimedia smoothly and quickly with the tablet-best Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core 1 GHz processor. Dual cores mean web pages are loaded twice as fast as single core chips, and the GeForce graphics card delivers top-notch visuals. And at 8, 16, and 32 GB models for $429, $499 and $599, you don’t have to spend more than you want for what you need.

And that speed also comes from the fact the Thrive tablet has 1024 MB of RAM when other tablets are usually 512 or 768 MB of RAM, meaning the Tegra 2 never runs out of room to shuffle things around and process your multiple requests. And every Toshiba Thrive is personalization-friendly, with 6 separate colors pastel, rubberized backplates; Silver Sky, Blue Moon, Green Apple, Raspberry Fusion, and Lavender Bliss as well as the Basic Black it comes in. These are each a very affordable $19.99, and the rubberized texture is drop-free easy to hold and grip.

Buy the Toshiba Thrive starting at $429.99.

And in a trait that only a couple of other tablets shares, the latest Google OS Android Honeycomb 3.1 operating system is onboard to maximize your interaction and internet accessibility. With instant download access to over 200,000 Android apps and over 500 made specifically for the Honeycomb OS, you will never run out of entertainment or productivity enhancing options.

All Android Tablets offer Flash media player support, and that means the best possible rendering of graphics and web pages that you can get in any mobile device. Those best-ever graphics are displayed on a 10.1 inch LED backlit capacitive multitouch screen with “best in tablets” 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The result with the Flash media player, best-ever tablet resolution, GeForce graphics card and Tegra 2 dual core processor is speed, power and visual splendor not many tablets can match, or even come close to delivering. Tablet shopping? If you like surfing the net, downloading apps or watching movies, the Toshiba Thrive tablet offers personalization, perfect pricing and performance.
