Verge score: 5.1

Being a diminutive version of their original 10-inch Thrive tablet, Toshiba's Thrive 7-inch runs Android Honeycomb, features a 1280 x 800 resolution display, and carries the same aesthetics and design as its brethren. Along with a thinner depth comes the decrease in port size with a Micro HDMI port, a Mini USB port, and a microSD slot. The Thrive 7-inch keeps the same 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, and 16GB or 32GB of storage.
