ToshibaThrive_04

Remember the big ol' port-tastic Toshiba Thrive 10.1 and its seven-inch baby brother? Well, Toshiba has been running around telling folks on one of those social sites that it will be bringing ICS to this pair of Android tablet "at the end of spring."

Yes, spring.

When we hear end of spring, we automatically think sometime around mid-to-end of June, which is, well, quite a ways off. Of course, this isn't an 'official' statement per se, but considering the word came directly from Toshiba's PR Manager, it does carry some weight.

How does that feel, Thrive owners? Are you willing to wait four more months to get 4.0 on your beloved tablet?

    Yes..about time. I'm willing to wait as long as I know I can expect it on my thrive now And I love my thrive now love it even more if they do upgrade to the 4.0.

    The lag on Toshiba's part is ridiculous. I don't think I'll ever buy another device from them again after I got to experience their customer service when the RAM in my tablet went bad after 5 months of use.

    Yesssss! Finally! :-)

    Glad I'll finally get it officially. This way I can stop running it unofficially. :)

      ^^^ yes, unofficially, without sound, working wifi, and like pretty much everything...

  • Andy

    Considering I wasn't expecting it all, I'll gladly wait 4 months.

    I can wait as long as I know it is coming. I love my Thrive. 4.0 will make it even better. I just wish there were better office apps out for Android. A Microsoft office app would be awesome. Even if it only had Word and Powerpoint.
