Pre-orders for the Toshiba Thrive starts today

Starting today, you can now pre-order the Toshiba Thrive, Toshiba’s first Honeycomb tablet. There will be 3 models of the Thrive available for the public: an 8GB model for $429.99, 16GB for $479.99, and 32GB for $579.99. It looks like at the moment, you can only pre-order the 16GB and 32GB models from OfficeDepot. It looks like they probably won’t be selling the 8GB model.

If you do want to get your hands on the 8GB model, you will be able to do so by ordering from ToshibaDirect, Toshiba’s online store. If you do pre-order, expect to get your Thrive sometime in July.

The Thrive is Toshiba’s first Android tablet and it features a 10.1-inch screen, Android 3.1, replaceable battery, full-size SD card slot, USB 2.0 and HDMI ports, 2MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera, all powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor.

We look forward to getting our hands on this baby for a full review.
