Following on the footsteps of the original 10.1-inch ThriveToshiba is readying its smaller and sleeker 7-inch sibling for a U.S. launch starting this week.

According to Toshiba's official product page, the Thrive 7 is available in two models, one with a 16GB SSD and the other with 32GB. Both models are otherwise the same, including the 1280x800 resolution screen, 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB LPDDR2 RAM, front-and-rear cameras and Android 3.2. Connectivity options are also abundant with Micro HDMI, mini USB, microSD reader, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi. Battery life is expected to last up to 6 hours.

Unfortunately, expect a healthy dose of bloatware as the tablet will come preloaded with a number of Toshiba and third party trial Android apps and games such as Google Movie Maker, Printer Share, QuickOffice and Need For Speed.

The Thrive 7 can now be purchased through Toshiba's online store for $379 for the 16GB version and $429 for the 32GB version. For those interested in the Thrive 10, which launched almost exactly 5 months ago with similar specs, Toshiba is still selling the 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models for $379, $399 and $479, respectively.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
