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.

Well, whattya know! Remember Toshiba's Thrive tablet that has been hiding in the shadows for the last few months? Well, it turns out that it may be hitting the streets somewhat soon, as it briefly showed up on J&R for pre-order earlier today. It has since been removed, but not before we got a sneak peak at some probable pricing.
Before the listing was suddenly ripped from J&R's website, the 8GB model was rocking a $449 price tag, while the 32GB version was sitting at $579 - a pretty competitive price point for a 32GB tablet. The 8GB version, however seems to be a moderately steep price for the size, considering that you can get 16GB out of the the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer for $400, or the Acer Iconia A500 for $450.

You didn't think Toshiba would let Motorola take jabs at Apple without throwing one of its own, did you?
Motorola called the iPad a giant iPhone back in December
Remember the Toshiba Tablet teaser site we found yesterday? Here is what happens when you visit it from an iOS device:
Such a Shame.
Add this to the list of the interesting places on the internet you can't see on your device. Of course, if you had a Toshiba Tablet you would enjoy the entire internet. Yep, Flash sites too.
Nicely done, Toshiba, besides the fact that, you know, nobody has the said Toshiba Tablet because it hasn't been released or even given a name yet.
