Toshiba Thirve preorder

The latest Honeycomb powered tablet to be announced, the Toshiba Thrive, is now up for pre-order at Office Depot.  While the date is listed only as "coming soon" (we were told mid July), the price is just as Toshiba announced it would be -- $479.99 for the 16GB version, and $579.99 for the 32GB version.  Noticeably absent is the $429.99 8GB option that was also announced, which may well disappoint some looking for the more frugal option. 

Office Depot has also posted a short video showing off the full size ports, removable battery, and color choices for the back. You'll find the link below to the Windows Media file, which probably won't play on your smartphone.  Bookmark this one for when you get home.

Toshiba proper's also got preorders, for the same prices.

I downloaded it and changed the extension to mp4 and it played just fine on my Epic.
