Toshiba Likely to Debut New Thrive Tablet at IFA 2011 Conference

Details of Toshiba’s upcoming Thrive tablet PC device have been splashed all over the Web in the midst of rumored preparations by the company to launch a slimmer, sleek HoneyComb powered tablet in the forthcoming IFA 2011 event to be held later this week.

According to a report (opens in new tab) published on the website Notebook Italia, the new,unnamed tablet is mostly made of metal and glass and comes with a massive 10.1 inch display and micro HDMI connectivity.

Other key aspects of this rather stylish tablet device, according to various reports, include a front facing webcam, micro SD card slot as well as an integrated combo mic/headphone socket and the Honeycomb edition of the Android OS.

Though the internal specs of this product have yet to be disclosed, it is highly likely that it will be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, just like its elder sibling, Thrive. The connectivity features are likely to be quite standard with the inclusion of Wi Fi and Bluetooth. However, there is a pretty good chance of the new tablet carrying the 3G/4G option as well to lure mobile internet users. The new tablet is eagerly anticipated by consumers and experts alike.
