Yes, but you report concisely.
Mini Review of the Toshiba Thrive:
I've had my Thrive for several days now and I've had the chance to play with most of it's features. Quick spec list:
10.1" 1280 x 800 capacitive touch display
Dual-core Tegra 2
16GB Storage (models include 8GB, 16GB or 32GB)
Front-facing 2MP camera
Rear-facing 5MP camera (neither has flash)
2030mAh battery (approximately 10 hours)
Now, here's what sets the Thrive apart from the other tablets:
Full-size USB 2.0 Port
Full-size HDMI Port
Full-size SD Card slot
The Thrive came originally with Android 3, however as soon as I powered mine up and entered my personal data, a notification alerted me that an update was available. Once finished, 4.04 was installed! w00t!
The Thrive is considerably thicker than most tablets, including the TP, but I've gotten used to it and actually prefer it. The thickness along with the rubbery, textured back make it a breeze to hold - even on your lap in a moving vehicle!
The fact that I can remove the back (in about 45 seconds) and swap out batteries means a lot for me as I often travel through four Counties a day - all day, and use my tablet pretty much the whole time.
In all, I'm impressed with the build quality, speed and features. I have a Zagg bluetooth keyboard, a 32GB SD Card and all are working perfectly.
