Toshiba Thrive

Time to add another device to the list of Android products that'll soon be bumped up to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Responding to a question on Twitter, Toshiba has revealed that it's aiming to update its 10.1-inch Thrive tablet to the latest version of Android by the end of spring. An exact date wasn't mentioned.

The 10.1-inch Thrive originally made its way to market with Android 3.1 back in July 2011, and although we obviously don't yet have a firm Ice Cream Sandwich rollout date to look forward to, it's good to hear that Toshiba intends to push Google's freshest dessert to the slate. Here's to hoping that the company makes its targeted release window for the upgrade. As usual, you can bet that we'll pass along any new details (like an actual launch date) as we get them. Any of you out there own a Thrive?

UPDATE: Toshiba Public Relations Manager Eric Paulsen has told Computerworld that the 7-inch Thrive is also being targeted for an ICS update by the end of spring. Good news!
