The last we heard in terms of the 10-inch Toshiba Thrive tablet and Android 4.0 ICS was back towards the end of June when a delay was announced. At that time Toshiba did not offer all that much in terms of detail, stating only that the update would not be coming until sometime in the fall. And well, it looks like things must have been going well because while it is not yet the fall — the update has come available. According to Toshiba, they “are pleased to announce a new software update for your Thrive 10 tablet.” This update is said to be arriving with performance enhancements, but most likely more important for some — it will be arriving as Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Some of the highlights of the update include the following;
- Improved video and audio performance
- Improved camera functions
- Improved signal strength and connectivity
Lastly, those sporting a Toshiba Thrive 10 tablet should be on the lookout for an update notification to arrive. Or otherwise, for those with a bit less patience, you can grab your tablet and navigate to Home -> Apps (upper right hand corner) -> Service Station -> Check for Updates to get the process started.
