Toshiba dates Android 4 update for Thrive 10

Toshiba USA just revealed over Twitter that it plans to update its Thrive 10.1-inch tablet to Android 4.0 before the end of the spring. This puts the release in mid-June, as the summer season starts on June 20.

The Thrive is available in three models, with 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities. They are priced at $429, $479, and $570, respectively. All share the dual-core, 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and a 1280x800 resolution display. It differs from other Android tablets by virtue of its user-removable battery and swappable rear covers. The tablet shipped with Android 3.1 onboard.

    Continual updates will follow after...

    to fix all the bugs they introduce. Usual story....rush as quickly as mollasses to release the latest Android version and then iron out all the bugs in subsequent revisions while your customers are jumping up and down.
