    It's been fun guys (and gals). The Thrive has more out-of-box functionality / features. That's "my" reasoning. I got the 16GB one. I'll be hanging out at the thriveforums.org sister site though.

    Looks good. There are some things that i would have liked but i would miss being able to connect at 3g. But the full size SD card is great as well as the way they did the connectors on the side. also the docks that they offer seem to have exactly what we would like to see, pass through connections. But it appears to weigh the same as the xoom and most of the other things are the same so no gain for most things. Good luck with it!

    128gb sdxd card and 1tb external hard drives. Nice.

    Full size ports... bulky... so not so nice imo
    Sure it'll be just as good as the xoom.

    What's Toshiba's update history or android pedigree like?

    Sent from my favourite piece of gadge.
    GEDified.... xoom to be donated to the kids....maybe.....probably

    Working SD (sans root) / mass storage, already supports SDXC, replaceable battery, full size ports, interchangeable rubber backplate, etc. I also want to test their claim that it will be just as usable / readable in sunlight and that SRS Premium Voice Pro is better than regular Google Voice. That's just what I know about. I probably missed something that I'll discover later.

    I also found this article good: http://www.pcworld.com/article/23073...id_tablet.html

    No idea. They have a clean slate AFAIK since they've never produced an Android device before. I'm betting on them having learned from everyone else's mistakes this with it launching now. They probably don't want to mess up their first entry in the Android (Tablet) market, I'd think. It looks like they did their homework. Since it ships with 3.1 already on it, I'll just have to wait and see how long it takes the next update to come through.

    Specs are impressive, particularly enticing is the mass storage connectivity. Many pros. I just wish they had not chosen silver/metal to surround the lens on the front. It breaks up the clean look and is distracting.
    Xoom 4G LTE and I HATE the typing lag on this forum!
