Toshiba Thrive goes on preorder from June 15 for USD 429
Toshiba has finally revealed the official details on the availability and pricing of its Thrive Honeycomb tablet. Yes, the name Thrive has also been confirmed by the manufacturer. According to LaptopMag, Thrive will be available for preorder starting June 15 in US and will be shipping from July 10 – quite a long wait.
Company has priced the 8GB version Thrive at USD 429, while 16GB will be sold at USD 479 and 32 GB for USD 579. These are the WiFi only versions, which are talking about right now; there is no word on the 3G versions of the tablet.
Company wants to be in top three tablet manufacturers by the end of this year, I don’t see how they are going to do that.
Coming to the features of Thrive, it will have an almost vanilla build of Android 3.1, full size USB port, SD card slot, and 10.1 inch display. Company is also including SRS stereo speakers, Resolution Plus technology for the display, and removable battery.
