Toshiba is the first manufacture which has managed to squeeze HD resolution (1280×800 pixels) into a 7 inch display. Other tablet brands also offers 1280 x 800 display resolution, but these tablets are 8.9 inch or larger.
The Thrive 7″ Tablet has a dual core processor and is running on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform. Google released version Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system for tablets in July and the Thrive 7″ is running on this version. We are guessing the Thrive 7″ will have to compete for the same customers also having their eyes on the HTC Flyer, BlackBerry PlayBook and Samsung Galaxy Tab. Toshiba Thrive 7″ does not have 3G support which might drive potential customers over to the competing tables.
Thrive 7″ will be available in 16 GB and 32 GB versions, but memory can of course be expanded by inserting a memory card into the microSD card slot.
