Toshiba has announced the new 7″ entry into their Thrive tablet family. The Thrive 7″ tablet has an AutoBrite LED-backlit multi-touch display with 1280X800 resolution. It’s powered by the NVIDIA® Tegra™2 Dual Core Mobile Processor, and it will run Android 3.2 (Honeycomb). You can see the dimensions on the above photo; the Thrive 7″ weighs less than a pound. You’ll be able to take photos with the on-board HD cameras, surf, read emails, play games, enjoy music, videos, and photos – everything the bigger Thrive tablets can do, but on a device small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The Thrive 7″ is available in 16GB and 32GB models. The Thrive 7″ will be released later this year.
