Toshiba Thrive is one of those tablets I’ve reviewed and wasn’t quite happy with what it offered… Well, at least the software side gets an update, the Android 3.2 software to be more precise. The build is 188.8.131.52.5.0002 and keep in mind that this update was promised back in October.
The changes brought by the new software included improved compatibility mode, that improves the way apps for smaller screens look and function on the large slate display. Screen rotation acceleration is also improved and extended screen support API is added, allowing developers to have more precise control over the UI on a range of Android devices.
It appears that this update may break the root method that was available for this device, so best of luck if you already rooted the tablet. Right now we’re waiting on that super slim new Toshiba tablet that follows-up the Thrive, hoping it will meet our expectations and deliver everything that was promised.
