Toshiba Thrive WiFi Tab Coming To Best Buy On July 10th

Toshiba’s Thrive the 10.1-Inch Honeycomb tablet to hitting July 10th according to Best Buy’s inventory database. The pre-orders for the 10.1-inch pad got underway June 13th, and though we’ve long been hearing it would go on sale July 10th, Toshiba has only been giving a loose ETA of mid-July. This Thrive 10.1-Inch Honeycomb tablet is also available in for pre-order all the 8, 16, 32 GB model.

For now their particular location’s received “quite a few” 16-giggers in-stock, and they’re just waiting to shine under the fluorescent showroom lights. So, it’ll still be about a week’s time until you can get your paws on one, but in the meantime, scoot past the break and you’ll find some Thrive packages in the flesh, er, cardboard. Checkout the spcification for the tablet bellow.

The Toshiba Thrive is a proud 10.1″ Android 3.1 Tablet. And the screen isn’t just big.
