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. Um, this is not the Thrive. Research much?

    1. Sorry, broski. FYI, the Thrive is the American name for the Regza in Japan. And a delayed Japanese release means a delayed north American release. 

      1. Actually, browski, you are completely wrong. They are not the same tablet and what is going on with the Regza does not affect the Thrive at all. There is no delay for the Thrive, which will be released on schedule.

  2. I’m very much impressed with the replaceable battery of Toshiba Thrive and the fantastic battery life which can reach to 23 hours, this is fantastic.

    1. Replaceable battery!??! That’s pretty awesome! :O

  3. incredible 2 s off and root along with recovery flash are all available to public * very soon * according to the developers and other XDA sources :)

    this is a great phone, so glad we are opening the doors up to improving it
