The Toshiba Thrive 7″ offers a great experience for those that like 7″ tablets. Its major competitor, as of now, is probably the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0, which offers slightly better performance and better aesthetics. But some users are simply not fans of...

Priced somewhere between the iPad 2 and the Amazon Kindle Fire , the Thrive 7-inch isn't quite what you would call a budget device. Not that you should, because the specs seem reasonable. A 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel one on the...

The market's track record with 7-inch tablets is rather thin to this point, and has been met with scattered success. But with the competition for 10-inch tablets becoming a battle between, really, Apple, Samsung in the distance and then everyone...

The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a solid but not standout 7" Android tablet. It relies on 2011's standard 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU for good but not breathtaking performance, and it has a rugged and comfortable design. We wish it had a full size USB port and a...

The Thrive 7 is a big improvement over Toshiba's first attempt at a Honeycomb tablet, but it still feels like it just isn't quite there. The somewhat dated processor, poor battery life, and $380 price point are some substantial cons to overlook in...

When it comes down to it, the 7-inch Thrive is a solid, albeit hefty, little Android tablet. Even without the full-sized ports, there’s still quite a bit of connectivity there and we saw perfectly acceptable performance the whole time. However, the...
