Toshiba tablets are widely used in markets. They have become a huge success in recent years. Toshiba has overtaken several of its competitors in the tablets market whether it is Samsung, Nokia etc. Recently Toshiba has announced an unnamed android tablet. It comes in a slinky design and powerful features.
This tablet runs honeycomb variant of Google’s android software and sports a 10-inch screen with 720p resolution, a 5 megapixel rear camera complemented by a 2- megapixel front-cam, an HDMI-out port and Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor. There’s more connectivity than you can shake a stick at, with USB 2.0 and mini-USB ports. Plus the obligatory Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. An SD card slot also scores over devices such as i-pad giving you expandable storage.
Toshiba thrive is a kind of tablet launched by Toshiba which has given extreme competition to i-pad 2 of Apple. The device features full size USB 2.0 and HDMI ports, along with a mini-USB port and a standard sized SD card slot, which accepts cards, via the USB port. For example we can connect keyboards and speed through any chore that requires typing, an external hard drive can also be attached which means we can easily access or back up just about any sort of content.
At the heart of Thrive is a dual-core Nvidia tegra 2 processor, a mobile CPU that’s specifically designed to devour a minimum of power while providing amph oomph for processor-intensive applications.
It has two built in touch screen keyboards. Those include the standard Android version and Swype, an app that lets you draw words by running your finger from letter to letter as program predicts the word you want. Both work via the capacitive touch screen, which detect changes in an electrical field on the screen’s surface.
The screen also provides haptic feed back in the form of vibrations, which gives you tactile confirmation that the tablet is receiving your finger processes. Most haptic feedback systems use small motors which produce vibrations, giving a livelier feel to what would otherwise be a lifeless touch sensation.
The exterior of the thrive Is what’s called Easy grip, a rubberized and texturized backside that’s designed to provide you with a secure hold. The thrive’s battery is also replacable. You can charge the battery with the included laptop-sized AC adaptor which also enables us to use a Bluetooth keyboard.
It offers even more when It comes to visual capabilities. A forward facing camera is 5-megapixels and a user facing camera is 2-megapixel. You can still capture picture or video with either, meaning that video conferencing is an option via Google chat.
The tablet also has an integrated gyroscope and accelerometer. These sensors detect the tablet’s tilt angle and movement. Certain types of games such as driving simulators, you can turn the tablet back and forth like a steering wheel to guide movements within the game.
The Toshiba thrive does provide a utilitarian range of tools found in no other current tablet. Email , chat , video chat, tweet whatever the future thinks up next is what Toshiba is about.
