Can anyone tell, whether full usb like in this tablet, can support usb tv tuner?
This tablet is really good with the exception of one thing. The screen does not have that finger print repellant coating that the galaxy tab or the ipad has. Also the screen is not a gorilla glass so watch out when you carry it in your bag.
its fantastic all working as a real pc with usb,hdmi,miniusb,external sd and so on.
I recomended its the best
Hey guys i want to buy this tablet but i need to know if it supports usb internet sticks.If not, i will wait for another one. Thanks
Tank, 12 Sep 2011Hey Guys. does this tablet work with an internet usb stick.ThanksI also want to know about usb internet
Purchased the Thrive about a month ago and its been a fantastic tablet so far. Major selling point for me was the full size USB and the SD card slot. I can download files the move them to usb or the micrd SD cards or from those cards to the Thrive. I use my Android phones Mobile Hot Spot for internet connectivity when away from a wifi and the Thrive uses 1/3 the data as compared to my laptop when connected to the hot spot. Wife wants to dump her I pad and get a Thrive now.
Loved everything about this tablet except how the power and volume button oriented. Quite tedious to press, and the volume button just doesn't seems right. Normally, volume would go from Low to High (left to right), but on the THRiVe, it's the opposite: High to Low (
left to right).
i was wondering if you put a usb﻿ modem in, would it let me use internet on it through the usb modem.
And with full USB port, probably could cobble up a driver for a USB cellmodem/cellNIC stick and get 3G/4G whatever access I might want.
In fact, doing this, I won't be limited to a GSM or CDMA provider...I can have EITHER or BOTH!
Definitely on my "Hmmmm....I should buy one of these with money from my next consult" list...
The Thrive does NOT have an IPS display. If you check with Toshiba you will see. It is using what they call a backlit LED display possibly with 'LPS' technology...which is a Toshiba way of boosting color contrast but it in no way makes it IPS.
This is the 1st Tablet that supports External USB input that I am aware of.
Please get your facts straight if you are going to publish. I have the Thrive and your article is incorrect:
The Thrive is the first Honeycomb tablet to include a full-size SD Card slot.
None of this microSD card nonsense for Toshiba; ditto for only having a micro- or mini-USB port. By including the SD Card slot and USB port, the company recognizes the need for interoperability among devices.
i agree. i love the idea of having a full sized HDMI and USB slot. it makes life so much easier. no need to carry all the wires around. most people will complain about the weight but i think its fine. Overall, the best tablet till date
I think Toshiba has made an excellent decision, and seem like they've done more market research than its competitors. If a tablet is to replace a laptop and become an entertainment hub then you need all those specs and ports. Samsung, on the other hand, is just trying too hard to compete with ipad, I like Samsung and I think they make great products at good prices but they're probably trying too hard. Initially, I bought an ipad and then sold it after 1 month because it was such a closed system that made it only partially useful to me, case in point I could not reserve a rent a car on line because the website used flash; could not put my pictures because I needed to be near a computer with a cord and itunes. Although Android is far from perfect, it remains more open and does not "rule" you. I am glad I waited. I trust that the build quality of Toshiba is great and thus with those specs I am sold. Since I don't live in the States, I just asked a friend to send me one. Sorry for a fragmented comment; I needed to be brief.
