Name expected to be tied to upcoming tablet
Contrary to recent rumors surrounding the name of Toshiba's upcoming tablet, the company has filed to trademark the term 'Thrive' for an upcoming device specifically described as a "tablet computer." An Engadget report also points out that the company has established a range of domain names that include the term, including ToshibaThrive.com and ThriveTablet.com.
Less than a week ago, a report suggested the Android 3.0-based device would actually be labeled the ANT. The information came from an Amazon listing, however, which could have been using an incorrect placeholder.
The device is expected to integrate a 10.1-inch touchscreen with 1280x600 resolution, a two-megapixel front-facing camera, and a five-megapixel primary camera. Other features are said to include HDMI output, USB, and 720p upscaling.
Whatever the final name happens to be, the tablet is believed to be on its way to the market in May for $450.
