Toshiba Thrive Android tablet up for pre-order

No word yet on UK release, but Tosh tab promises much.

Toshiba’s Android tablet, dubbed the Thrive, has just been slapped with a pre-order price tag by US retailer J&R. The CES-revealed slate is set to cost $450 (£279) for the entry-level 8GB model. A pricier 32GB version has been priced up at $579 (£359).

Those are impressively low considering the Thrive got a warm reception when it was first revealed. It comes with an impressive spec sheet too, packing Android Honeycomb, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, HDMI support, a 10.1-inch 1280x800 panel and a 5 megapixel camera round the back.

If the prices do translate across the Atlantic, it’ll make the Thrive much cheaper than the Motorola Xoom and LG Optimus Pad, both of which have been criticised for being prohibitively expensive. The Xoom costs £499 for the basic model, while LG’s tab has been rumoured to costs as much as £699.

Do you fancy a Toshiba Thrive now provisional prices have been outed? Let us know now on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
