If you are one of those consumers who prefer using tablets at home, Toshiba Thrive is exactly what you need. Recently announced, it already captures our attention with its high-end features. Let’s start with the portability aspect – it measures exactly 117 x 273 x 15.8 mm, having a total weight of 725 grams.
Although you might think that it is a little bit too much for you, if you continue to read you can find some other very interesting aspect in order to forget this disadvantage. In the list of technical features we can find a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor at 1 GHz frequency or a 10.1 inches LCD Adaptive touchscreen having a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels or a displaying capability of 16 million colors. This upcoming tablet will also include a 5-megapixel camera on the back with auto focus, with a maximum pictures resolution of no less than 2560 x 1920 pixels.
And if you are interested on the video chat option, there is a 2 megapixel camera on the front too, which has a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. Toshiba Thrive comes preloaded with Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS and it also includes HDMI and USB 2.0 ports or Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity options. Or a replaceable battery and docking Port as well.
We also know that it will be available in three sizes for different prices: 8GB version for only $429, 16GB model with a price of $479, and finally the most expensive 32GB one for $579. It also has 1 GB of RAM memory, but there is a micro SD card slot too, which allows you to extend it up to 32 GB. And don’t worry, although it will arrive in July 10th, Toshiba Thrive will be available for pre-orders beginning June 13th at Best Buy. Toshiba Thrive has a price that could be easily compared with the one of iPad 2. But is it too much when it comes to performance?
