    Based on the specs it’ll probably be affordable. I’d consider getting one if they get ICS. Toshiba makes reliable products.

    Wow, so exciting. Yet another Android tablet. This one really stands out from the rest. I’m so excited that I….wait penny on the ground.

    “can do it too”

    Their Thrive tablet has a full sized SD slot, which means great storage capacity at a better price, plus compatibility with laptops, cameras, etc.

    I hope this one does too.

      The spec sheet on Toshiba’s site says microSD/mini USB/micro HDMI.

      The 10″ Thrive has full SD/full USB/full HDMI, while the 7″ Thrive has full SD/mini USB/micro HDMI

      I’m sure it will be a quality tablet, but the full SD was definitely a feature that set the Thrive apart.

  • Mischa Price

    Yay, android 3.2!

  • Varley

    can you access full facebook on the thrive or only a limited version? my friend as an acer tablet and can’t access everything on facebook like chat etc. Is there a big difference between the thrive and the blackberry playbook?

  • Deann

    @varley i have the 10″ thrive, yes it can access full facebook, through the browser.

  • henry

    why only android 3.2, specially since there’s going to be better devices coming with ice cream sandwich 4.0
