Toshiba Thrive: $429 Honeycomb tablet

Do I really need to list the specs of this thing? 10.1″, 1280×800, Tegra 2. The only thing to make it stand out is a user replaceable battery, which is sure to tempt some people into buying one. Priced at $429 (for 8GB) it’s at least competitively priced (though still more expensive than the Transformer (if you can find one). It will run Android 3.1 and have both a full size SD card slot and a full size USB port- though that comes at the expensive f a thicker, heavier device. They also promise faster battery charging and hopes that all of this will make it sell. Pre-orders start June 13th.
