Toshiba’s Android Honeycomb tablet, the Thrive, has just recently got a price cut for eBay’s Daily Deal. You can now grab the 8GB Honeycomb tablet for a mere $379 instead of the standard $429. Even better, shipping is free, too. With very little time left, if you want to jump onto this deal, you best do it quickly.
The Thrive may not be as slim or sleek as other Android Honeycomb tablets available today (read: Galaxy Tab 10.1) but it certainly competes in the price arena, even without this discount. Shipping with more ports than any other tablet we’ve seen to date, the Thrive is a powerful tablet that makes up for its chunkiness with its full HDMI and USB port, SD Card slot. While you may not find full use for all of these ports, you normally don’t find all of these features on one tablet.
The Thrive is also blazing fast thanks to its NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, which is found on a majority of Honeycomb tablets today. If you’re on the fence about tablet right now and aren’t looking to pull the trigger right yet, even with this deal, you may want to hold off for NVIDIA’s Kal-El quad-core processor to appear in a tablet first.
Overall, there’s a lot to like about the Toshiba Thrive and we like it even more when we see it at a price like this. The tablet has come a long way since the first time we laid eyes on it and is one of the best Android tablets around that gives you the biggest bang for your buck.
Head over to the Daily Deal page here if you’re ready to grab your Thrive but you better hurry. Time and supplies are limited.
