Toshiba’s finally getting into the Honeycomb tab game after numerous public delays. The Android 3.1 Thrive is set to drop next month with an aggressive $429 price for the 8GB model. $479 will net buyers the 16GB model while the 32GB costs $579. Not bad, right?

Under the 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 screen is a Tegra 2 chipset, WiFi, Bluetooth and a battery that can be charged to 90% within an hour and a half. A full size USB host, HDMI, and a full size SD card slot round out the connectivity options while a 2MP camera is embedded on the front side with a 5MP one is around back. Overall it seems like just another WiFi-only Android slate with the notable exception of coming in a variety of colors including blue, black, purple, green, pink and silver. Every likes colored tabs.
