Good news! Toshiba has rolled out Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich to our Thrive Tablet (10-inch) TODAY, August 6th. Systems will automatically update upon connection to the Internet. You can also use the TOSHIBA Service Station utility to update your Thrive Tablet, if you do not have your system set to auto-update.

Yes, you should definitely wait. They promised the upgrade by the end of spring and have missed that date with no further communication. Don't buy one until the ICS update is actually released, since they may never actually release it.

Tablets in general are driven by the Android operating system. Microsoft Word was not developed for that platform. The Thrive Tablet (10-inch) does include Quickoffice® (Trial version) which allows you to read Office documents and PDF files. On Google Play (http://play.google.com) you can upgrade to the FULL VERSION for Android, called Quickoffice Pro HD. This program allows you to CREATE, EDIT, & SHARE, Microsoft® Office files on your tablet!

The volume control on the Thrive Tablet (10-inch) is located on the same side as the SD slot, the side opposite the speakers. Please refer to the illustration on pp. 27 of the Thrive Tablet 10-inch User's Guide:

User's manuals are downloadable from the Toshiba Support website (http://support.toshiba.com/download).

Absolutely! Screen brightness on the Thrive Tablet (10-inch) is controlled from the Screen Settings screen. Download the Thrive Tablet (10-inch) manual from the Toshiba Support website (http://support.toshiba.com/download), and refer to pp.73: "Customizing your device’s settings - Screen Settings" for a step-by-step description. Below is the link for your manual:

Using the Thrive Tablet (10-inch), first be sure you are connected to the Internet. Once there, go to Google Play, using the Tablet. Be sure the app you wish to download is "for Android" operating system. Once you've found the app you want to download, just click the Install button & accept the conditions. The app should install and create a Short Cut on the Home Screen. If you do not see the Short Cut there, check the App screen. Once installed you can Open immediately or use it later.

Is it worth buying

I had planned to buy a ASUS tablet, but then I came across Toshibas.
The name was enough to drag my attention. But was very disappointed when I read its review.

My questions:
1. Whats with the restarting ? People seem to be cribbing !
2. How is the battery's performance ?
3. Is there a Android 4 update available ?
4. What about the heat that it would generate ?

Thank you for your consideration. Let try to take your comments one at a time:

1) Reviews. I can't speak to the unnamed review you refer to, but I would suggest you try reading the reviews we've had from Toshiba customers who've purchased the Thrive Tablet (10-inch), keeping in mind that they are monitored by a 3rd Party company, so you're guaranteed to read both good and bad:

* Thrive™ 10" Tablet (16GB) - 4G. Rated by 5 customers; Avg. Rating 5 out of 5.
http://us.toshiba.com/tablets/thriv...

* Thrive™ 10" Tablet (16GB). Rated by 84 customers; Avg. Rating 4.5 out of 5.
http://us.toshiba.com/tablets/thriv...

* Thrive™ 10" Tablet (32GB) - 4G. Rated by 4 customers; Avg. Rating 4.5 out of 5.
http://us.toshiba.com/tablets/thriv...

* Thrive™ 10" Tablet (32GB). Rated by 53 customers; Avg. Rating 4.25 out of 5.
http://us.toshiba.com/tablets/thriv...

* Thrive™ 10" Tablet (8GB). Rated by 25 customers; Avg. Rating 4 out of 5.
http://us.toshiba.com/tablets/thriv...

Other questions:
1. Restarting. Personally, I have not experienced this issue, even though I've had my Thrive Tablet (10-inch) from its initial release. I call your attention to a post in the Toshiba Thrive Forum, an enduser who solved the issue by doing a factory reset and then reinstalling the conflicting apps. Here is his story: http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/t...

2. Battery performance. The Thrive Tablet (10-inch) is rated as "up to 11 hours". Times may vary according to system use.

3. Toshiba is due to release its next update SOON. All releases are automatically distributed upon boot-up through a utility called TOSHIBA Service Station. Simply turn the system on and follow the prompts.

4. The Thrive Tablet (10-inch) does not have a known heat issue. One user records his Thrive Tablet as reaching 75.6 degrees F. Again, I can tell you from personal use, while watching TV and using my Thrive on my lap, that it does not get so hot as to be uncomfortable.

Just pop the SD Card into the slot and use an app to access its content. For example, let's say you have a group of photos on the card (JPEGS) from a digital camera; the Thrive Tablet (10-inch) can read the card using the GALLERY app which comes standard with tablet.
