Toshiba Thrive Review

Toshiba Thrive Review

The Toshiba Thrive isn’t a sexy tablet. It’s plump, homely, a little bit awkward, and although smart and supportive, you won’t be showing it off much to your buddies. But if you’re reading this review, you probably already know that. You’re considering the Toshiba Thrive because you see past a pretty exterior and a tight slender body. You want great specs inside, a good clean install of Android 3.1 Honeycomb, ample full-sized ports, and a swappable battery among other unique features.

Mouse Pad Travel Pouch Raises Question of Mouse Longevity in our Modern Mobile Culture

Mouse Pad Travel Pouch Raises Question of Mouse Longevity in our Modern Mobile Culture

When was the last time you used a mouse? The last time I used a mouse, it was the late 1990s and I was playing the MMORPG Diablo II. Sidenote: Diablo III is coming out soonish, (within the next year, we hope,) and I may need a mouse - any suggestions? Since then, essentially every person I know, my age or otherwise, has been using a laptop for all their computing needs. A desktop replacement, rather, with a trackpad and no need for a mouse. The manufacturing and distribution group Smartfish has just released a product that, by all means, should have been invented years ago: the Mouse Pad Travel Pouch. Will you partake?

Toshiba AC100 Review

Toshiba AC100 Review

Companion devices come in all shapes and sizes, from big-screen smartphones through tablets to netbooks and ultraportables, but Toshiba is hoping that by borrowing a little of each they'll find a gap in the market. The Toshiba AC100 looks like a netbook but runs Android, an OS we're more familiar with on smartphones or, more recently, tablets. The company reckons a traditional keyboard and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor should make the AC100 the best multimedia, browsing and communication ultraportable around, but is Android being asked to do more than it's currently capable of? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Toshiba AC100 Ubuntu hack gets video demo; Official build could be in works

Friday's news that open-source tinkerers had managed to get Ubuntu 10.10 up and running on Toshiba's hitherto-Android AC100 smartbook raised a few eyebrows, but the usability of the hack was significantly scuppered by the fact it wouldn't load past the boot screen.  That's been ironed out over the weekend, and Carrypad now has video of the AC100 doing its Ubuntu thing.
