Good news for the few rocking a Toshiba Thrive tablet. Their 10-inch model is finally getting the much awaited update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Toshiba is a little behind on their initial announcement dates for the update, but at least it’s finally available. More details after the break.
Toshiba originally detailed an early spring release date for their ICS rollout for the Thrive tablets, but that never happened. Quickly that update schedule was pushed back to “this summer” and eventually to “early fall.” Today however it’s finally available for download as we speak.
As usual, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich brings plenty of changes, features, enhancements and more. Performance has been improved, as has the browser, Face Unlock should be available, and many other things I’m sure you’ve already known about for months while waiting. Overall this update should only improve the hefty tablet.
Toshiba also specifically mentions audio/video fixes and enhancements, improved WiFi signal strength, as well as enhanced camera features — but that was also a feature of ICS. For those looking to dive in the process is simple. Just launch the “Service Station” app and check for updates, or head to the forum link below for more details. The 7-inch tablet will be waiting a bit longer, hang in their folks!
