Since we first had some time with the Toshiba Thrive (then only known as an unnamed Toshiba tablet) at CES last January, we've been waiting to hear when it would show up for anyone to actually purchase one. According to Engadget, that will be this July, with pre-orders starting at Best Buy on June 13. The pricing is also done right -- $429 for the 8GB model, $479 for the 16GB, and the 32GB checks in at $579.
The Thrive is also looking good in the features department -- with full size HDMI and USB ports and a full size SD card slot built into the unit itself, connectivity won't be an issue, and that matters because it ships with Honeycomb 3.1 and all the USB gadgetry support you could ever ask for. Toss in Toshiba's Resolution + software and a removable battery, and you have the makings of a real winner at a great price. Hit the break to see the hands-on video from CES.
