You remember the 10.1in Toshiba Thrive, right? Also known as the AT100, it was first revealed in January 2011, and finally released eight – count ‘em – months later. There’s also a 7in variant in some territories.
Well, there’s more bad news for Toshiba Thrive owners where Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) is concerned. Originally scheduled for spring, it’s now slipped to autumn. Oh dear.
A post on the Toshiba blog explains: “We are working hard to bring Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich to our Thrive tablets. While we originally estimated it would be ready this spring, we now estimate the update will be delivered to all Thrive 10” and 7” tablets by early fall.
“Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.”
Toshiba’s significantly slimmer Excite range (including 7.7, 10 and 13.3in flavours) ships with Ice Cream Sandwich.
It’s not clear what the hold up is with Ice Cream Sandwich for the Toshiba Thrive, but we suspect it might be because 17 units were sold across the globe.
