Toshiba Thrive Forums Added
And it looks like the next player in the Honeycomb-sporting family of tablets has finally decided to join us here at xda-developers. Toshiba is no stranger to small portable devices or even to tablets. However, their participation in the whole smartphone market has not been as active as many people would have expected it to be. If you are old enough to remember, Toshiba had amongst the most powerful PDA devices back in 2002 with devices such as the e740. So, their vanishing act was questioned by many. It seems that their hiatus was not in vein as they recently put out their first ever Honeycomb tablet. This tab carries several of the same specs as their competitors Asus, Samsung, and Acer. Basically, you can expect a good, quality tab, which will give those brand-driven customers something to shoot for.
The development efforts on this have been going on for a while now and since there were threads scattered throughout our forum, we decided to give it a centralized place for people to talk about. So, if you got one recently and would like to share your findings, please drop by and share away.

This is why they are revamping Google Photos and centering it around 3 big ideas: Creating a home for all photos and videos that is...
VP of Engineering Jen Fitzpatrick began talking about what Google is doing to help “the next billion” come online. More and more people are getting their first smartphone, and for many people this first phone will be their first computer. The majority of the next billion will be Android users and they “want to remove the barriers of smartphone adoption”. While there are huge displays of phones on sale, not all are able to run the latest and greatest...
