Toshiba is finally getting around to pushing out Ice Cream Sandwich to Toshiba Thrive owners. After a delay which turned an eta of “end of Spring” to “early Fall,” Thrive owners were left in the cold as to when they could expect their ICS goodness. According to an official forum post, along with the update, there is some audio/video enhancements, improved signal strength, and improved camera functions.
Thrive owners, if you haven’t pulled that update yet, go get it!
Cheers Drew, Nathan, Scott!
It may be hard to believe, but there are devices still out there that have not received the update to Ice Cream Sandwich yet. I know, it’s unbelievable. The Toshiba Thrive and the Acer Iconia tablets are just two of the devices on that list. Well, you can now mark off the Iconia tablet, as Acer has begun to push out ICS to the A200 tablet starting last Friday. Congrats, Iconia owners.
As for the Thrive, owners have until the end of Spring to receive it on their devices, so the wait could be a couple more months. Word from Toshiba’s PR Manager is that both the 10.1″ and 7″ variations of the device will receive the Ice Cream love around that time frame. Could be worse – you could own a Thunderbolt.
Two weeks from today, many of you will flock to electronics and big box stores to snatch up the amazing deals that they have advertised for Black Friday. One of your stops should probably include Best Buy if tablets were one of your holiday shopping options. In their Black Friday ad that was released to just about every BF site on the planet today, it’s pretty clear that they want to move some tablet inventory.
How does an Asus Transformer for just $249 sound? The Toshiba Thrive at $279? Maybe the Acer Iconia 7 for just $189? By the end of November 25, you might have a family full of Android tablets. (more…)
Seems as though Honeycomb tablets are seeing price drops across the board recently. Many have said the Toshiba Thrive has been their go to tablet, putting it above the Motorola XOOM, and even the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tab. Let us point out again, that this is the 8 GB version, which might be a deal breaker for some people.
With the second generation of these devices on the horizon, it is possible we can even see more price cuts. Which only means one thing, happier consumers. How does the Toshiba Thrive stack up in your eyes to other Honeycomb tablets that are available? Anybody thinking of picking one up?
As far as we knew, you were only able to pre-order the Toshiba Thrive from retailers, but somehow Newegg managed to get a few and put them up for sale early. They currently have the 16GB model available for $479 and the 8GB model available for $429 – as far as I can tell, they will actually let you purchase both and have them within a couple of days thanks to free shipping.
Anyone interested? (more…)
The Toshiba Thrive is one of the new Tegra 2 Honeycomb Android tablets that we really haven’t talked much about, but wanted to at least point out the fact that you have a chance to win 1 right now.
Through Toshiba’s site, they are offering up 10 Thrive tablets to people who simply find a secret code somewhere in the video that we’ve embedded below. It’s pretty simple, but it does sound like you need to let your friends know to watch the video over and over again, because as we understand it, the secret code won’t appear until the video has been seen 10,000 times.
