Toshiba pushes first software update to the Thrive tablet
The Toshiba Thrive tablet officially goes on sale today, although it’s been available in some locations since last week. Now some of the first Thrive owners are reporting there’s already a software update available for the tablet.
The firmware update apparently improves support for multi-touch and may make some other changes as well. A member of the Android Central forums reports that he can no longer use a generic NVIDIA Tegra driver to connect the tablet to his computer using the Android Debug Bridge from Google’s software developer tools.
The Toshiba Thrive features a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display. The tablet has a few features that set it apart from the crowd including a removable back panel which allows you to change out the battery a full-sized USB port, and a full-sized SD cards slot.
