The Thrive 7 is a android based tablet with a 7inch HD Screen, and just like it’s big brother the Thrive it will feature loads of ports that most tablets lack all be it in mini or micro size. (Mini USB and HDMI and microSD)
The Thrive 7 will have a 2MP forward facing camera and a back facing 5 MP camera. It is about half an inch thick and light weight. It had the same look and feel as the Thrive.
Today Toshiba showed off their new Portégé Z830, the first ultrabook Toshiba has released using the new 2nd gen Intel Core processors. The Z830 weighs only 2.5 pounds and features a 15.9mm thin profile. Which basically means its super light and super thin!
Along with the Intel Core processors the Z830 will feature DDR3 memory, 128 GB Solid-state drive, a full size LED backlit display, spill resistant keyboard, and constructed with a durable magnesium alloy casing which is reinforced with a honeycomb ribbed design.
When I first saw the Toshiba Thrive tablet at CES in Las Vegas back in January 2011, I could tell it would be a hit. It offered features that no other tablet offered. Features like a full size USB Port, HDMI port, and a SD slot, also the ability to access the battery and swap it out and 5.0 MP camera along with a forward facing camera that I must say works great with Skype. All those features made it stand out from the rest of the tablets on display at the event. Not to mention the 10.1” widescreen LED back-lit display. The features the Thrive offers are ones that we give up for granted and try to live without when using a tablet but quickly wish we had. Hence why I think the accessory market for tablets is so big.
One of the reasons I have heard from various OEM’s as to why they omit USB ports and SD Slots on their tablets is because of weight and limited space. Toshiba proved those OEMs wrong. While the Thrive weighs 1.6 Lbs. its evenly balanced and feels like it weighs a lot less. It is thicker than some other tablets but not by much.
Today Toshiba announced the availability date and pricing for the new Qosmio F755 3D the words first glasses free 3D laptop. Toshiba says it will be available later this month and my guess would be next week. So if you are interested in the new F755 you will be able to order one from ToshibaDirect.com for $1699 once available later this month. The F755 will come with a Toshiba Blu-Ray player, easy switching between 2D and 3D content on a 15.6 inch full HD TruBrite screen.
“The Qosmio F755 3D laptop is not just a breakthrough in mobile entertainment, but a great example of Toshiba’s ongoing commitment to turning technology innovation into real, usable products,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “We are excited to bring this cutting-edge technology to consumers, as there’s really nothing like it. The unique capabilities of the laptop’s 3D display make enjoying 3D content both convenient and hassle-free. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.”
Yesterday Toshiba and Intel launched a new campaign called “The Inside Experience” with academy award winning photog Mauro Fiore and D.J. Caruso, director of Disturbia just to name a few. They are filming a new concept film that will allow us to participate in it via social networking sites.
Basically during the airing of the show, which will be released in episodes on July 25th – August 4th, users will be able to tweet clues, to one of the characters (Christina). The editor of the film will then incorporate tweets into the show that best fit the story line.
Also one lucky viewer may win a chance to appear on the show! Yesterday a YouTube online casting call opened up. The person with the winning video submission will be cast into the show. How cool is that? Too bad I suck at making videos (just watch some of my unboxings).

When I sit at my Desktop, I am surrounded by six monitors. The flock of monitors enables me to be as productive as I can be. I know that might sound cliché but its true I am more productive because of them. I mainly use four of the six with the other two full of desktop icons and widgets which keep me up to date on my systems health to the local weather.
I’ve really grown accustomed to my set up and whenever I travel I find myself struggling to be as productive as I am when I am home. It’s as if I don’t have enough space to put everything I want. At home I have a screen for Outlook, another form my browsers etc. On my notebook everything is on top of everything else, and I forget something may be open in the background.
Today FedEx dropped off the brand new Toshiba 14” USB Powered Monitor, and I was so excited I made a video! Check it out below, I should have a full review in a week or two.

Toshiba today unveiled a USB powered 14” mobile LCD monitor. When I first read the press release I had to double check the date and make sure it wasn’t April 1st. A mobile LCD Monitor in my opinion is a great tool for any mobile professional. There are countless times where I could of used a second screen while traveling, and knowing that now I can if I were to get one and its powered by a USB port is in my opinion amazing.
“The Mobile Monitor allows traveling businesspeople and students to conduct on-the-spot presentations and share content without the need for a bulky projector or having to crowd around a laptop screen,” said Paul Collas, director of Accessory Marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Life Products and Services.
Toshiba use to be known for plain bulky systems that offered you a lot of power and no style. However over the past two years I have seen a trend at Toshiba, where they are more style focused and are now designing more and more stylish systems and quite honestly raising the bar.
The Satellite T235 is a perfect example of this trend at Toshiba. No PC maker that I can think of is delivering such a stylish product at an affordable price point ($630). Toshiba has done a magnificent job with the T235 as it’s beautiful and powerful. Available in three colors Gemini Black, Red and White the T235 has a etched metallic interior that Toshiba calls its Fusion Chrome finish.
Sometimes you need something basic, something that will do the job, nothing to fancy, just something just right for the job. The L500 is probably the just right notebook.
The L500 is a basic notebook, not a lot of bells and whistles but it seriously gets the job done, and the more I played with it the more I liked it. In fact in my opinion the L500 is the perfect desktop replacement especially for a small business.
Its large 15.6 inch HD display, Intel Core i5 Processor, 3GB of memory and a 320 GB HDD make it great for everyday day to day task and the occasional gaming. (WoW)
