Summary: I only review electronic products once I've road tested them thoroughly. I've had this tablet about a year now and am pleased with the purchase. I needed a small 7" screen for small four year old hands to borrow when they wanted electronic distraction; and to date it hasn't been dropped. The size wouldn't be great for me alone, as I am too used to the 10" sizes, but it works well for the travelling we do.
Summary: Great android tablet, this have only one problem, you CANT root it if you have the lastest Android version. and i dont know if is just mine but i cant connect USB or any accesory on the mini USB (using adapter of couse).
Summary: The 7" Thrive works well for the task I bought it for. I needed a tablet to run a fairly complicated spreadsheet for grocery shopping. A 10" would be too big. I use Documents To Go for the spreadsheet program to manage a sheet originally created in Excel. It does not support hyperlinks in the spreadsheets and takes time to recalculate formulas twice when opening the workbook and at other times. I also purchased the Toshiba wireless keyboard.
Summary: I purchased this as a gift for my girlfriends daughter this last Christmas and quite simply, she loves it. It doesn't have the Tegra 3 processor but the Tegra 2 works just fine for her needs. What we liked about the thrive 7 was it's full integration of Android ice cream sandwich (after installing the update). With it's 5mp back camera with flash and 2mp front camera, blue tooth, GPS, motion sensors, and micro SD, it does just about everything she can throw at it.
Summary: The only reason I gave this product 4 instead of 5 stars is because I am a MAC user and there was a bit of a learning curve to getting used to a PC type product. But it does everything I was looking for and more.
Summary: This is a great tablet. What to consider the screen is a little on the small size. Also the amazon kindle app does not work on this tablet (at least we haven't found a way to make it work. Everything else is great on this tablet. My husband is not the charging type of guy, that is okay because the battery lasts a great deal of time on this tablet.
