Toshiba Thrive Honeycomb tablet gets unboxing
The Toshiba Thrive 7-inch Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet has been given an early unboxing ahead of its launch. In the silent video (embedded below) the user shows the device removed from its packaging with a quick view of the tablet itself as the contents of the box. The Thrive, which is due to go on sale on July 10, is shown to be a bit thicker than most of its competition, however, part of the reason for this it holds a replaceable battery that most of its competition lacks.
Apart from its replaceable battery, it otherwise retains all the standard Honeycomb tablet trimmings. These include an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. It also includes HDMI, USB ports and a microSD slot.
The Thrive is available in a 16GB model retailing for $480 and 32GB model that is selling for $580. An 8GB version is also available, but in smaller quantities, for $430. [via Android Central]
