Information about Toshiba's Honeycomb tablet has been spotty at best since the company unveiled it
amid a sea of like-minded slates way back in January at CES. We've seen it teased
and were subjected to some naming confusion, when the company filed a trademark for "Thrive"
shortly before the tablet surfaced with the unfortunate ANT moniker
-- and on Friday we caught wind via some chatty Twitter accounts
that Toshiba is sticking to the former, a fact seemingly verified by new J&R listings for the device. The retailer has 8GB and 32GB versions of the tablet up for pre-order at $449 and $579, respectively. Specs also include a 10.1-inch screen, an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, WiFi connectivity, and 2MP / 5MP front and rear cameras. The tablet is listed as "coming soon" on the site, though signs seem to point to a release not too long after its Japanese counterpart
, at which point we'll see if the Thrive actually manages to live up to that name.
