Toshiba Thrive 10 inch tablet coming to the US in July

June 6, 2011

Toshiba is ready to deliver a second tablet next month, but only over in the States for the moment.

The Folio 100 was Toshiba’s previous effort, but was hit by problems and even withdrawn from sale at the close of last year by Dixons group.

The Thrive can surely improve on the Folio, and it certainly has a better name for a start. Spec-wise, like the Folio the Thrive is a 10 inch tablet and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

The new tablet will also have a 5 megapixel camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera for video chatters. Ports will include USB and HDMI, and the OS will be the latest version of Honeycomb, Android 3.1.

The US pricing starts at $429, although that’s for the Thrive which only has 8GB of storage. Whether or not this device will see a UK launch isn’t certain, although we’d imagine that will be the case.

While it’s due out in July in the US, it won’t likely been seen over here for another couple of months after that, however.
