Toshiba appears prepared to issue an announcement regarding a followup to the summer release of their first Honeycomb tablet, the Toshiba Thrive, and it could come next week at IFA. The new slate looks to improve on the shortcomings of their previous device, most notably with a svelte new look revealed in renders obtained by Notebook Italia. Featuring a thinner frame with brushed metal accents, little else is known about the new offering aside from the inclusion of microHDMI, microUSB, and microSD ports revealed in the leaked images.
Toshiba’s previous two attempts at entering the Android tablet space haven’t gone as successfully as they had hoped. The company would rather forget the poor performance of their initial Folio 100 and very well could be looking to erase the Thrive from their memory as well.
