So what exactly makes this Honeycomb tablet so special? Well, the fact that it comes in a wide array of options (there’s that word again) like an 8GB version for $430, 16GB for $480, and 32GB for $580. I personally think the 8GB version would more than do the trick seeing how it is the only tablet I’ve seen thus far offering a full sized SD card slot (no micro) and even full sized HDMI and USB connections. Wowzers.
Notable specs include a removable battery (good for when Honeycomb freezes up on you), standard dual-core Nvida Tegra 2 processor, 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras. Toshiba has also included some handy apps like Swype and upscaling software Resolution +.
The Toshiba Thrive will be the company’s first Honeycomb powered Android tablet to hit the U.S. and Best Buy will allow you to pre-order the device as early as June 13th with a rumored launch date of somewhere around July 10th.
