Toshiba outs software update for the Thrive that fixes its deep sleep issue
Honeycomb’s very own sleeping beauty, the Toshiba Thrive, has been plagued by a mystical bug that somehow caused some units to not wake up once it entered sleep mode. Last week though, Toshiba came out to inform us all that a software update was in the works to address the problem, but more importantly, it was promised to become available this week.

Well, kudos to Toshiba for obviously following through because starting today, a new software update for the Toshiba Thrive is being pushed out as we speak. Rather than following the usual update process we tend to see with Android, owners need to run Toshiba’s very own “Service Station” app in order to download it. In addition, the update enhances the multimedia playback capabilities of the device.

So there you have it folks, there is no more oversleeping problem for this Honeycomb tablet! In the greater scheme of things, it’s nice to see Toshiba working diligently of late to get this update out as soon as possible – and it's right on cue as promised!

Cool i have been looking to buy a reasonably priced tablet. The thrive is a good one and the asus. Glad to see updates.

That seems to solve two of the most quoted drawbacks with the thrive. The three things that make me doubt it are:

1 The ports
2 The readily replaceable battery
3 That it doesn't try to be an iPad trope (looking at your Tab 10.1)

I am insecure enough to need more reasons to believe. Give me some!

The three things that make me like it, I should have said... :p

I actually received an ICS update for this tablet a few days ago and it makes the device so much better. It is complete trash without ICS-very buggy and slow. I would recommend a Nexus 7 and if that is too small, then ASUS Transformer Prime.
