Summary: Yay! The long-awaited Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich?) for the Toshiba 10 tablet is finally here. It went online for downloads August 6. It took my tab about two 1/2 hours to download the whole thing but then only just a few minutes actually to install it.
Summary: As a fairly savvy tech consumer, who uses windows,IOS, and Android, let me add my two cents. Bottom line, if you can get a good deal on the 16GB or 32 GB versions, snap it up without hesitation. The tablet performs well and will suit most needs.
Summary: Love Newegg too bad Toshiba can't meet my expectations.
Pros: Fast and easy to manuver
Cons: Toshiba support is a pain!!! I bought my Thrive with the optional back cover and black folding case AND I keep my unit in a padded neoprene tablet case. Pulled it out of my brief case (my third layer of protection) the week before Christmas to find 2 cracks in my glass eminating from the corner. ...
Summary: In addition to Thrive, I have iPads as well as Lenovo K1 Tablets. For Apple haters, no amount of praise for iPad will convince them. Now, if you want a stylish, slim profile iPad alternative, stop right here as Thrive is all that iPad is not, some in a good way.
Summary: I've RMA'd it back to Newegg, but they would not drop ship me a new one. So now I'm stuck waiting for my new one to arrive. Hopefully this time not cracked.
Pros: The Toshiba Thrive was a great tablet, the screen was responsive, coming from a viewsonic gTablet it was like night and day. The ability to actually place the tablet on a flat surface and still see the scren was a good thing. The speakers weren't too shabby, while not as loud as my gTablet still ...
Cons: It arrived with a crack in the screen. I still updated and booted it after the fact. The cameras weren't too good, a 2mp front, and 5mp back but the sensor feels cheap. It couldn't do low light for anything any and shots came out very grainy. While it has fullsize SD, USB, HDMI the lack of MicroS...
Summary: I registered my Thrive 16GB on August 19, 2011. The input/output ports were the primary attractions of the Thrive and my initial judgement has proved to be correct - the more I use the Thrive the better I like it. Since I bought the Thrive I have used it every day.
Summary: My husband surprised me with this tablet, and after a week of constant use - I am in love. I was apprehensive at first because I had not heard of the Toshiba tablet before. However, I have found that it is a fantastic and impressive multimedia tool.
Summary: If you are even looking here you must have made the choice to go with an Android tablet over the iPad. What makes the Thrive stand out among all the other Android tablets is its price, external storage options, file manager app and full size ports.
