I picked up the Toshiba Thrive a few weeks ago. I must say that I’m thrilled to death with it. I like the android OS and everything “just works”. I’ve become a fan. Initially I was woried about having a portable device that I couldn’t write code on, but I found that when I’m commuting, I just didn’t need to be slamming out code. I was mostly surfing the web, checking email, etc. So .. i dropped the mini i was previously traveling around with on the floor. So, since I needed to get a new travel device I decided to go this route.
