Possibly this is toshiba's worst ever device..not sticking to any of the features provided. I have been using it for 6 months now and it seemed a complete waste of money. USB not working as expected,Touch has been really dreadfull and lot more to list. Apart from that Toshiba failed to get ICS on thrive as that they have been promising from a longtime...

Correction: It does NOT have IPS screen.

Screen quality is very good but not with perfect viewing angles like an IPS screen !!

Overall, I like and use daily... Shame there are not very good cases for Thrive.

> In reply to Alip900 @ 2011-06-03 18:48 from Ld0N - click to readI spent a ton off money on my Thoshiba Thrive because it is horrible to use. The touch screen is really bad. We have to always click above what we want to actually select. To explain better I have to touch the screen 1/8 to 1/4 above any button or text i want to select. Because of this selecting to copy and paste is a nightmare and selecting words I'm trying to change in a sentence is almost impossible. Using headphones is frustrating on the Thrive as the volume is so low. I wish I'd bought an iPadthis is so bad. Trying to get the cursoir between the words iPadthis in the last sentence is impossible. I'm really sorry I wasted the money.

Here it is .. folk's. I went out an got the ( THRIVE ) 32GB from best buy in Minot N.D.! I think this was the best thing I've spent good money on in the past year 1/2..! I'll just say this.. My thrive as helped me in so many ways! I really don't know how I've ever gottin bye without it.. the knowledge an application's right there when you need it. Without haven to carry around a bunch of adapters to plug it in to almost anything, .. because of the components it has already.

> In reply to seaman @ 2011-12-27 02:01 from tRVH - click to readToshiba Thrive is definitely one of the best tablets in terms of price,battery replacement,and the ports available. However, I'm not sure if Toshiba has resolved the issue of 'sleep and reboot'. The company had promised an update(s) for this early in July.

I need to be connected to internet even when i m not in wi-fi zone. I am currently in India, mobile service providers give USB based internet connectivity.
Is it possible to get connected to internet through USB port.
Please advice

Using a Thrive to post this review. Love this tablet, bought a new Toshiba laptop about a month ago,and read reviews on tablets, this is the best. Now Toshiba needs to make a phone maybe include that with their 2nd gen tablets.
