Honeycomb tablet sports removable battery that can play HD video up to seven hours on single charge

Reuters reports that Toshiba is throwing its hat into the new tablet wars, with the upcoming Toshiba Thrive.

The Android 3.1-based 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) tablet will come in 8GB ($429), 16GB ($479), and 32GB ($579) sizes. Powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 and sporting the typical WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB, the Thrive also supports an SD card and features two cameras: a 2-megapixel front-facing one and a 5-megapixel rear.

According to Engadget, the Thrive rocks a haptic display with a button to lock the screen orientation. Toshiba also includes its Resolution+ software, used for cleaning and upscaling video playback. 

The Thrive is also one of few tablets that sports a removable (and swappable) battery. It is said to last for up to seven hours of continuous HD video playback on a single charge, and will recharge up to 90 percent in an hour and a half, Engadget reports.

The one downside is its weight. "At 1.6 pounds, it's about as heavy as the first-gen iPad, which, like, scads of other tablets, has since gone on a diet," Engadget writes.

The Thrive is expected to become available for pre-order from Best Buy, Amazon, and others, beginning June 13.

True - Toshiba bogs down EVERY PC with crap and at the time of the Vista crisis was the worst offender of the out of box lock up.

Toshiba sucks.

NOT for everyone!
