Toshiba’s Honeycomb Tablet Gears Up For A Canadian Release This August


Today, Toshiba has officially announced the August release of the Canadian version of their latest entry into the Android 3.1 Honeycomb tablet scene. ‘Round these parts, we simply know of tablet scene as the Thrive but in Canada, the name has yet to be determined.

The tablet will be available in a variety of memory sizes ranging from $430 for the 8GB version, $480 for 16GB and $580 for 32GB. Keep in mind, these tablets will have the option of using an micro sd card slot so cheap expandable memory is always an option. As a refresher, the tablet will have a 10.1 inch 1280×800 resolution screen, Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras and Toshiba’s specialty software for video enhancement.

The tablet will be available from all major retailers in Canada like Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Staples and Future Shop. There’s also a handful of accessories that will also be available for the tablet at launch, such as an HDMI media dock and a patent-pending Portfolio 360 case that allows the user to rotate the device without taking it out of the case (sounds fancy).

Anyone else looking to pick one of these up or will you be holding out for something with more “punch?”

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I need an opinion;
    Which tablet? The Transformer, Inconia, This one, Galaxy 10, or another?

    Give me your feedback, I want a tablet:)

    1. Well, if you have tablet fever, I would go with the Transformer (personally). Tons of expandability and a full qwerty keyboard! Its like a touchscreen netbook :D

      1. That’s what I was thinking! Nothing awesome coming out soon? I hate buying things, something better comes out a month or two later. Haha

        1. Yeah I got a Transformer the other day and I am absolutely loving it.  After lots of research and waiting for the next best thing I pulled the trigger and have no buyer’s remorse.
