Toshiba Thrive tablet pops up for pre-order at $450

Toshiba Thrive 8GB coming soon for $450

The Toshiba Thrive tablet, the name of which was trademarked last month, is again showing up online and is available for pre-order at J&R but the listings have been pulled. They did reveal that the 10.1-inch tablet with Android 3.0 will cost $449 for an 8GB model and $579 for a 32GB version. A 16GB model is expected, falling between the two at $499, but wasn't listed.

The listing also didn't show a shipping date, simply opting for a Coming Soon label. Other specs include a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, a 1280x800 resolution, a front-facing two-megapixel camera, and a rear five-megapixel camera with autofocus. There is also Bluetooth 3.0 onboard, Wi-Fi, an SD card reader and full sized HDMI and USB 2.0 ports along with a mini USB and dock port. A rubber rear backing differentiates it from other Android 3.0 tablets.

The model number of AT105-T108 doesn't match the earlier AT300 tablet from the company, though the specs are certainly very similar. [via NetbookNews]
