The Toshiba Thrive showed up on our radars back at CES, though back then it was still known as "the nameless Toshiba tablet". The 10.1" tablet took pre-orders in June, and looked towards mid-July for a shipping date.

Well, it looks like those reports were on the money, as an anonymous Engadget source is reporting that Best Buys around the country will be selling Thrives as early as July 10. However, these reports are only extending to the wifi-only 16GB model; I highly doubt that these will be the only ones available at launch.

While the tablet was running Froyo back at CES, the tablet will be running 3.1 Honeycomb at launch. It also feature dual front and back cameras, a USB, mini USB, HDMI and SD card slot.
