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The 10.1-inch Thrive originally made its way to market with Android 3.1 back in July 2011, and although we obviously don't yet have a firm Ice Cream Sandwich rollout date to look forward to, it's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!

Thanks for your participation! :)

Maurice Conger I want it on my GSII from att!!!
Scot Milo lol about 99% of android users are waiting for "ICS" and will most likely never get an update lol
Eduardo Ordaz @Paul. Most customers don't care about updates and most don't even know what version of OS it runs. They care about having a great phone and a good OS that has what IOS lacks and that's CUSTOMIZATION!!! no one wants a phone that has an OS that hasn't changed since OS its just icons and more icons and no one wants a phone that breaks very easy.
Lee Martinez At last!
Nathaniel McCord And this time it deleted the word on in the last post
Nathaniel McCord I typed all an Android phone so if there is some spelling errors and grammer errors it's because it likes to auto correct what I type usually to the wrong word
Nathaniel McCord Android constantly push out new phones with each release of flagship phones in carriers usually has singing unique about it example motorola Droid razr max has long lasting battery good screens and can take some damage before failing lg spectrome has the latest in screen technology this is an edge for Android and also a problem for it but apple and blackberry win awards in being stubborn when they release new phones cause even though they both release phone yearly when they come out they are usually already out of date when it comes to specs. I am not saying that they are bad though to be realistic the phones themselves are amazing it's there edge when they release phones there not some cheap device there devices will last 1 or 2 years when they finally release a new phone on there product line. There now three sides can hate on what I said now just need to pick on symbian and palm oh and I gurds windows
