It looks like the Toshiba Thrive is already hitting Best Buy stores in the form of 16 and 32GB versions.
No one’s been able to get an 8GB model, and for some reason, the smallest and cheapest tablet option has been removed from Best Buy’s inventory.
The Thrive has the following:
-Tegra 2 processor
-USB and HDMI ports
-2 MP front-facing camera w/ 5 MP rear camera
-Swype, Resolution+ software, removable battery
The price is starting at $479.99 for the 16, but if you’re not interested in so much storage and don’t absolutely need the tab in your hand this very moment, you can still grab the 8GB Thrive online, starting at $429.99.

Today, Barnes and Noble’s newsroom released an interesting incentive to think hard about upgrading from your current eReader to the Nook…
“Beginning July 1, bring any eReader into a Barnes & Noble bookstore to compare and upgrade to a NOOK device and receive an instant NOOK Book collection – 30 free digital titles valued at $315. The limited-time NOOK upgrade program is offered with purchase of any popular NOOK device including The All-New NOOK and NOOK Color Reader’s Tablet™.”
Even though you can’t pick the books yourself, and you’ll probably not care for a lot of them, it’s still a cool offer. Personally, i love the concept of free books regardless of whether their books i’d be interested in reading. B&N doesn’t list off all the titles, but wrote the following:
“The 30 digital books represent a variety of genres including Cooking, Kids, Classics, Humor, Lifestyle, Fiction, Sports, History, True Crime and Reference. Some of the free titles include: The Good Housekeeping Cookbook, Cristina Ferrare’s Big Bowl of Love, Creating Your Best Life, Glory in the Fall: The Greatest Moments in World Series History, 21st Century Crossword Puzzle Dictionary, My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me and timeless favorites including Secret Garden and Robinson “
Interested? The promotion starts tomorrow, and the Nook is available for $139.

To be honest, I expected the “Limited Edition” R2D2 DROID 2′s to fly off the shelves, even months after the initial launch. However, that just doesn’t seem to be the case. Verizon stores are having a heck of a time selling the remaining stock they’ve managed to retain, even with the holidays right around the corner. Fortunately, the Big Red has taken this harsh reality into consideration, and therefore, have decided to drop the price of the Star Wars Android to just $199. Not really a bad deal, especially if you’ve got a Lucas Film junkie in your family that would enjoy the gift of both worlds of Android and Star Wars.
