It seems that tablet computers are in a neck-to-neck competition to get smaller and smaller. It is some sort of a DéjÃ vu so to speak, as mobile phones also underwent similar type of transition over last decade or so. This process of transition for tablet PC has apparently taken a new step in Toshiba 7-inch Thrive tablet. You have to see it to believe it how diminutive a computer tablet has become. This 7-inch model is due to be out in December and the price is hopefully predicted to be less than $400. Let us see if it can stay as a powerful tablet even after such reduction in size and weight.
Now let's have a look at what all Toshiba 7-inch Thrive has to offer to you:
• It comes with the best of the specifications that a tablet can have. It has a 1 GHz Nvidia dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and storage options of 16 GB and 32 GB. So it definitely packs a punch despite its size.
• What is truly amazing is that it has a high-resolution of 1280 x 800 pixel display and a rich 225 pixels per inch (PPI), which eliminates the dot-matrix effect that often plagues Android tablets. One thing that you may observe due to such rich pixels is the sharpest and cleanest text that you have never seen on other Android tablets.
• It is equipped with two cameras: a 2 megapixel front facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear facing camera, with LED flash. The new tablet also sports gyroscope and GPS functionality, and features a 3.5mm headphone jack, mini HDMI, mini USB, microSD slot and a docking port.
• This half-an-inch thick tablet has a textured mat finish on the back so you can hold it firmly and with comfort. Comfort is one factor that you can’t miss out while handling a tablet.
