Australian Business Traveller is reporting that Toshiba’s 7-inch (ATS10) variant of the much larger 10-inch Toshiba Thrive will be launching here in Australia nearing the end of next month. The device will set you back $450 and will be sold via leading retailers. What the 7-inch Thrive does have going for it, is that it shares most of its specs with its larger 10-inch brother.
- 1280×800 7-inch Capacitive Display (216PPI)
- Android 3.2 Honeycomb
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz Dual-Core CPU
- Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB, Micro-SD
- 8GB Internal Memory
- 5MP Rear Camera / 2MP Front Camera
- Wi-Fi b/g/n — No 3G!
It might not have the insane pixel density of the Samsung Galaxy Note, but it does have a higher PPI count than most 10-inch and 7-inch tablets, making it great for reading and watching movies on the HD screen. What do you think of it?
