While more and more Honeycomb tablets are seeing price drops lately none are as cheap as the Toshiba Thrive tablet today. Although the Acer A500 is only $299 at Target that price only comes after you use a $100 gift card you receive when you buy the tablet. The Toshiba Thrive is just $368 at Walmart, and $369 at Amazon making it a pretty sweet deal.
While this is only the 8GB model it still offers a great package at a good price because the Thrive is just like many other Android Honeycomb Tablets. Rocking a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, and all those other impressive specs we’ve come to love. While I feel the Acer A500 16GB for $399 and a $100 gift card is a much better deal, some may prefer all the ports and options available with the Thrive.
Don’t forget to check our hands-on and unbox video if you’d like to see the Toshiba Thrive in the flesh before you head out to Walmart to purchase it. Most stores including Target and others are still offering the 8GB version for the overpriced cost of $429 so it’s nice to see both Amazon and Walmart lower the price.
Are we going to see prices continue to drop for all Honeycomb tablets as Ice Cream Sandwich and quad-core tablets near, Or is this just one of those deals that we see occasionally? What does everyone think?
