Toshiba Thrive 7 Android tablet revealed

New pared down tablet unveiled by Toshiba

US gadgeteers get chance to go hands-on with the new Toshiba Thrive 7, but no word on when us Brits will get to have a go with the newly unveiled next-gen Android tablet.

Toshiba has pulled the wrappers off of its new Thrive 7 Android tablet. As the name suggests, this is a 7-inch version of its older 10.1-inch Thrive slate, offering similar functionality but in a less chunky form.

There’s micro SD and micro HDMI included, as well as an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor for keeping things ticking along nicely under the hood. Android 3.2 is also kicking it inside, which means this is about as up-to-date as a tablet can get right now.

There are 16GB and 32GB models, with US prices set to kick off under the $400 mark. Word is the Thrive 7 will be out across the pond in December, although plans for a UK release are as yet unclear.
