Toshiba is all set to launch an Android 3.0 powered tablet which has now been named ‘Thrive’. The tablet boasts off a 1GHz Dual core Tegra 2 processor, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and 10.1 inch capacitive touch screen with 1280 x 800 native resolution.
The camera duty is done by a front 2MP HD webcam with microphone and 5MP webcam with Auto-focus and Digital zoom with 720p Video capture at the back. The tablet has a 32GB internal memory and a full SD card slot for external storage.
The pricing is also lucrative at $579 (Rs 26,200), and is available for pre-order at jr.com for international buyers with a coming soon tag.
However, Toshiba Japan seems to have delayed the launch to the third quarter of this calendar year, so the date of launch is unclear. When we asked India representative of the company she refused to comment.
However Toshiba having already launched its Protégé 12 inch tablet in India, this tablet should also be launched sooner than later.
