I bought Toshiba Thrive yesterday from Bestbuy (yes, they have it in store, but currently it's not on display). So far it's looks and feel good, well other than the thickness and 1.6lb, but it does have lots option not available in other tabs yet (full hdmi, USB, micro usb and replaceable battery).

Currently I don't see any dedicated thread for this tab. I hope Devs show some love for this awesome tab from Toshiba.

Congrats for your purchase. I am also the one who is longing for a dedicated Xda forum for the Thrive/AT100. We need a community! Could you tell us more about the tablet you got please?

I purchased mine at Fry's today...after checking availability on their website (which shows 32BG model available). My store has the 16GB and 32GB versions in stock. No Toshiba tablet on display, fyi.

I'm experiencing a problem with the tablet's sleep mode. Sometimes, after a sleep mode of 15 minutes or more, I am not able to wake up the screen with a power-button quick press. I literally have to depress the power button until the tablet completely powers/shuts off and then depress the power button again to start up the tablet.

Same thing here. I don't really care for the launcher either. I tried ADW and it looked good but just not right. Yep, this thing needs to be Dev'd.

I contacted Toshiba Support and was told that they would try to fix the "sleep mode" issue with a future firmware update. Also, I set the tablet's alarm clock (for the next morning), and it didn't go off due to the sleep mode problem.

I like the Toshiba Thrive tablet, but this particular flaw is prompting me to return it to the store.

How I fixed My Toshiba Thrive sleep Issue
I had the same issue when the tablet went into sleep mode it wouldn't wake up it would just blink. In order to turn it back on I had to hold down the power button until it went off then restart it. I fixed it by taking out the battery plugging in the tablet turning it on with no battery, then i put the battery back in and unplugged the device while it was still on it immediately noticed the battery and the sleep problem stopped happening hope this helps.

Edit: I got my thrive early at best at the time this worked for a couple days but then the issue returned again i thought the update would help but I still had the same issue, but now more often.
