Toshiba Thrive Review

0. phoneArena posted on 02 Aug 2011, 09:11

The Toshiba Thrive goes back to the root of things in hopes of strengthening the fundamental functionality of tablets. Seeing that this is their first foray into the Android tablet market, it’s interesting to see if it’s actually going to be “the first tablet to get it right”...

The swype keyboard can be deceased in size on landscape mode. Learn about the product before you review it please.

I love the Thrive. I offers so much more. It has all the components of my laptop.
As far as the size is concern don't be a wush.

I love the Thrive too. So it's thicker. Not a huge issue. It still holds nicely and the OS is neat.
Biggest treat for me, is the replaceable battery a reasonable fee. ($80.) That means when the battery loses it final charge, no matter where I am, I can just buy a battery or have a spare, put it in and keep on going. Other tablets need to be replaced, especially, the thin ones. And the cost is almost the price of a new tablet.

An Apple Store manager told me that when the battery loses it life and won't recharge, (approx. at 2 yrs.) you will get a refurbished unit and no help transferring data. Who carries their backup when travelling? So there you are left with an "empty bag" that will cost you another $400.
Dosn't make sense to me. Thin or not.
