Toshiba Thrive AT150 7-inch tablet pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

Over in Vegas at CES there's plenty of hype that Toshiba is all set to unleash a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7-inch tab; one that will hit the budget end of the

Toshiba Thrive 7

 

As 2011 draws to a close, it's fun to look back and think about how we began the year testing the first Honeycomb tablet, and are now ending it elbow-deep in me-too slates, many of them cut down to smaller sizes. So it should surprise no one, then,...

High-res display ; Great size, easy to hold

Exceptionally short battery life ; Cheap build quality ; Similarly priced tablets are faster ; Taking photos is a slowgoing process

Thanks to its short battery life and chintzy build quality, the Thrive 7" is bested by other tablets in its price range, and even some budget models.

Toshiba Thrive 7

 

The Toshiba Thrive 7 is an average tablet with a great screen, but its poor battery life and lack of compelling features make it hard to justify choosing it over some of the better 7-inch tablets out there.

Superb 1280-by-800-pixel display. Stable performance.

Inaccurate touch input. Disappointing battery life.

Conclusions Although the Toshiba Thrive 7 eliminates a lot of its bigger sibling's bulk, it also eliminates some features that made the original Thrive stand out, like the full-sized ports and removable battery. The screen on the Thrive 7 is superb and...

Toshiba Thrive 7-inch review

 

Toshiba hasn't had an easy ride in the tablet market. When we reviewed the original Thrive tablet this July, it wasn't only thicker and heavier than the rest of the 10-inch tablets out there...

High resolution, 7-inch display ; Good port selection for the size ; Nice size and form factor

Poorly made, plastic creaks ; Can get very sluggish ; Less than five hours of battery life ; Camera placement makes no sense

A good display isn't enough to make this tablet a good choice

Toshiba Thrive 7 inch review

 

Editors' note: Thanks to the release of recent, high-quality tablets, the overall score of the Thrive 7 has been adjusted up from 6.3 to 6.5.

The Toshiba Thrive 7-inch has a Mini-HDMI port and a very responsive screen, and includes a built-in file manager.

Unlike the 10-inch version, there's no support for full ports or a swappable battery. Also, the camera placement is ill-conceived, the shutter speed is painfully slow, and the tablet is expensive, given what it offers.

The Toshiba Thrive 7-inch is a decent tablet, but there are simply better options out there for the price.

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

Toshiba Thrive 7"

 

The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a smaller version of the original 10-inch Thrive and looks nearly identical. It packs the same Tegra 2 chip and 16GB of storage but runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb instead of 3.1. Its best feature is the 1280 x 800 pixel resolution...

Toshiba Thrive 7

 

Sharp high res display, rugged design

Not much sets it apart from other 7" tablets, thicker and heavier than most

The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a solid but not standout 7" Android tablet. It relies on 2011's standard 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU for good but not breathtaking performance, and it has a rugged and comfortable design. We wish it had a full size USB port and a...

Toshiba Thrive 7 Review: Less Like The Original Than You Might Think - But That's A Good Thing

 

The Thrive 7 is a big improvement over Toshiba's first attempt at a Honeycomb tablet, but it still feels like it just isn't quite there. The somewhat dated processor, poor battery life, and $380 price point are some substantial cons to overlook in...
