Toshiba Thrive (10-inch) Android 4.0 ICS Update Coming At End of Spring

Sometimes, the best way to ease your anxiety over a firmware update is to ask via Twitter. After all, that’s what social networking is for – to inform and to be informed. And speaking of which, those of who are hoping to taste the sweet features of Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on their 10 inch Toshiba Thrive tablets will have to wait until the end of spring. Now, do keep in mind that this date is tentative and there’s no assurance that Toshiba can really have your slate upgraded before summer. After all, they did mention in their tweet that they are ‘targeting’ the said date for ICS availability. Just don’t get mad at them if ever they leave your Thrive hanging on Honeycomb.

As for the 7 inch Toshiba Thrive, we still do not know when it will be officially upgraded to Android 4.0. Still, we do think that Toshiba should give an official statement or confirmation. It’s not like we can always be patient and wait for something that we aren’t even sure of.

Released last July 2011, the 10.1 inch Toshiba Thrive (also known as Toshiba Regza AT300) tablet can take pride of its IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 800 pixels of full screen resolution. Plus, it flaunts its 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset that goes alongside with its ULP GeFore Graphics, 5 mega pixel rear facing camera with auto focus, 2 mega pixel front facing camera for video calls, HDMI port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 3G HSDPA at 7.2Mbps, HTML5 Browser with Adobe Flash, Stereo Speakers, 3.5mm headphone jack, 1GB of RAM, 8GB – 16GB – 32GB of internal storage and up to 32GB of external storage via micro SD card.

The tablet was originally powered by Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb but was later on upgraded to Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Even so, it would be a whole lot better if the slate could run on Android 4.0.
