Toshiba Announces Thrive 7” Tablet for December



Toshiba already has one Android tablet out on the market right now, a 10-inch device called the Toshiba Thrive, and now, it has announced plans to bring a 7-inch device called the Thrive 7” to market by December.

And while Toshiba was glad to share a good majority of the key specs of the device, it has failed to give the tablet a specific release date or any sort of pricing.

The Thrive 7” will feature an LED backlit display with 1280×800 resolution, a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and it will have two storage options. 16GB and 32GB.

It will curiously run on Android Honeycomb 3.2 and not the upcoming Android Ice Cream Sandwich which is expected to make its debut at some point in October or November.

The Thrive 7” will weigh just 14.1 ounces, which puts it under a pound, and measures in at a mere 0.47mm thick. It also features a microSD, microHDMI, and miniUSB ports. It will also have both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Looks like this holiday season is going to be filled with Android tablet options.

    does the world really need a small toshiba thrive? or perhaps a different question is whether it will have anythign different to make it stand out from the bandwagon of tablets?

      It stands out on specs alone. 7 inch 1280 x800 display, user replaceable battery?! People realize that batteries eventually fail, so that is awesome. Honeycomb, dual core processor? Usb host, which means you can hook up peripheral directly to the tablet. I’ve been waiting for just this. Although its not as thin as some other offerings. But that’s not such a big deal. To me.

    It looks like manufacturers are throwing everything they can against the wall to see if ANYTHING sticks. Unfortunately, all they are doing is making holes. With the exception of a few differences in ports, they all remind me of the early days of Ford – you can have any color Model T you want as long as it is black. Either 7″ or 10″, 1gb ram, 16-32gb ssd (overpriced by the way – since when does the jump from 16 to 32 cost $100), mini-micro usb/hdmi/memory card. Ho hum…

    Looks like nice specs for those like me that want a smaller tablet to carry around that’s WiFi only.  I’ll be following this tablet till its release.  I hope it gets some Ice Cream.
