September 28, 2011 • Gadgets and Gaming

Electronics maker Toshiba has launched another tablet to its already growing number of tablet devices for consumers. The Thrive 7″ Tablet features a hi-resolution seven-inch diagonal touch display and is just big enough to fit into the palm of a user’s hand.

“The Thrive 7″ Tablet is the first seven-inch tablet in the U.S. market to offer a true HD display that when combined with the selection of ports, premium audio, and a better, more robust Android experience make it a great choice for on-the-go consumers looking for a no-compromise tablet,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development for Toshiba America Information Systems.

In terms of graphics, the 1280×800 resolution should make watching movies and photos, or reading books a breeze. The tablet also incorporates Toshiba’s exclusive Adaptive Display and Resolution+ video enhancement technologies, making it ideal for a quick video game.

Under the hood, the tablet is powered by Google’s Android 3.2 and the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform, and features a dual-core processor and NVIDIA GeForce graphics for console quality gaming. “A built-in Gyroscope offers hands-on motion control for the latest Android games. The tablet also includes two HD cameras: a five megapixel camera on the back and a two megapixel camera on the front.
