Toshiba Thrive update will cure sleepy tablet next week

Toshiba is readying a new firmware update for the Thrive tablet, that will address the sleep issues some owners have reported. According to the company, "a software update to resolve this issue will be available early next week and can be accessed from the Service Station utility app found on the Thrive at that time." No explanation for the cause of the issue has been given. Some users have found that their Thrive tablet refuses to resume from standby when the power button is pressed, and requires a reset in order to get it working once more; others have had to pull the battery completely in order to get the slate functional. The new firmware will also "enhance the multimedia playback capabilities of the device" though the exact nature of that change has not been specified.

Toshiba Thrive Review

Welcome to the Toshiba Thrive (aka the Toshiba THRiVE if you believe the box's interpretation of it.) This is a tablet we've been talking about since early 2010, a tablet of some legend - one that was said to possibly be the hero device for Honeycomb, then the hero device for Google to be giving away at their Google I/O conference this spring! But alas, none of that came true, and here we are with the thickest and possibly the heaviest tablet in the whole Android bunch. Will fun features such as a replaceable back panel and ports galore save this device from "it's not thin enough" fever?

Toshiba Thrive Hands-on and Unboxing

We've received none other than the Toshiba Thrive Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet in the mail and it's that time again - unboxing to the max! This device as you may well know is already available at your local Best Buy store in the sweet tablet area they've got going on, up for sale for you for one of the following prices: $429.99, $479.99, or $579.99 - the difference between these three being the hard drive of 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB. We've got the 16GB version on hand here and we'd just LOVE to show you around.

Toshiba Thrive users reporting issues with waking tablets up

Earlier this month the Toshiba Thrive tablet landed for fans of the Honeycomb device to grab up at Newegg, Best Buy and several other retailers. Things seemed fine with the tablet at the start and now there is a bunch of users having a bothersome issue with the tablet. Over on the Toshiba Forums there are multiple pages of users reporting that the tablet won't wake from sleep mode and that a reboot is required.

Toshiba Thrive Tablet Delayed for Android 3.1 Honeycomb, Model Number Updated

We've been following wild and crazy tablet for what seems like forever. This is the tablet that at one point was being called the next Nexus T, aka the next hero Google device. This device was the United States version of Japan's Toshiba Regza, both of these devices essentially one in the same save for the Japanese version's silver back as opposed to the Thrive's black. We've heard of major delays for this device as well as prices sitting right around $429 or so with a few snips up or down here and there today. Finally, only a week ago we were told there were going to be pre-orders for this tablet sooner than later. What have we learned today?

Toshiba Thrive tablet up for pre-order

Toshiba has thrown open pre-orders for its Thrive Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet, ahead of shipments beginning in mid-July. Priced from $449.99 for the 8GB model - with the 16GB at $479.99 and the 32GB at $579.99 - the Toshiba Thrive has a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 display, full-sized HDMI output and a removable battery. Inside is NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset, along with GPS, an accelerometer, digital compass, Bluetooth, WiFi b/g/n and 1GB of RAM. The battery is a 23Wh pack; Toshiba isn't saying how long that should last, but being able to switch it out for a second one should answer most questions about longevity. There's also twin cameras - 5-megapixels up front, 2-megapixels on the back - USB 2.0 and mini USB ports, a full-sized SD card slot, screen rotation lock-switch and a rubberized back plate for easier gripping. In short, it seems like Toshiba has really thought through a lot of what would-be tablet buyers are looking for, though we won't know for sue until review units start arriving.

Toshiba announces delays for next Android tablet

Toshiba has been around the computing market for a long time and when the tablet started to take off it stepped into the tablet realm. Last year Toshiba offered up an Android tablet running Froyo that was called the Folio 100. It has promised a follow-up to that tablet with a larger screen and some new features as well. That follow up tablet has been pushed back by Toshiba without much in the way of explanation.
