Toshiba Thrive 7 inch

The Good The Toshiba Thrive 7-inch has a Mini-HDMI port and a very responsive screen, and includes a built-in file manager.

The Bad Unlike the 10-inch version, there's no support for full ports or a swappable battery. Also, the camera placement is ill-conceived, the shutter speed is painfully slow, and the tablet is expensive, given what it offers.

The Bottom Line The Toshiba Thrive 7-inch is a decent tablet, but there are simply better options out there for the price.
