Toshiba Thrive, the Android Honeycomb powered tablet initially showed up during the CES event in January. Since then we have been hearing rumors about the pricing and launch date of the tablet. We knew that the tablet is already available for pre-order. We all are now waiting for the official launch date. Engadget is reporting that the Best Buy stores across the USA will sell the Toshiba Thrive units starting July 10th. But according to Thriveforums, tablets units have already been shipped to some local Best Buy stores (Confirmed at Austin, Texas) and are already available for sale.
Folks at Android Police have personally confirmed that several stores across the country have the tablet is stock currently. So if you are eager to get one early, just ring up your local Best Buy store, check with the store guys about the stock before you head to the store. You can also refer to the SKUs: 2768901 (for 32GB variant) and 2769576 (for 16GB variant) when you talk to the store guys. While we can’t really say that the pre-ordered devices would also be shipped on July 10th, but we’re sure they should be shipped at least within a week after July 10th.
