Default Engadget Reviews the New Toshiba Thrive 7"

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/27/toshiba-thrive-7-review/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/27/...hrive-7-review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Indeed, the Thrive 7" looks near-identical, and even packs the same Tegra 2 chip, 16GB of storage and vanilla take on Honeycomb. Still, it brings an LED flash, keeps its big brother's 1280 x 800 display and costs less than the original did when it first came out."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1325266362.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>There were a few things I liked about the 10" version of the Thrive.&nbsp; For one thing it had a full size SD slot, as well as full size USB and HDMI ports!&nbsp; It also had a mini-USB (oddly not micro-USB) and a Toshiba developed "Resolution+" technology for scaling phone apps and making them look decent on a tablet.&nbsp; The Thrive 7" drops the full size ports as you may expect but it does keep the Resolution+ and the 1280x800 screen - which gives it a high dpi for a tablet of 216.&nbsp; Unfortunately it sounds like performance isn't very good, the screen isn't great, and battery life is poor for a current tablet.&nbsp; Still, depending on your needs this could be the right tablet for you.&nbsp; Check out the full review for the details.</p>
