The upcoming Toshiba tablet is reportedly coming to Best Buy stores in the U.S. this coming July 10th, according to Engadget sources. A sneak peek at Best Buy’s inventory database reveals that the retailer has already gotten its hands on the tablet. The model to be on sale is expected to be a 16GB Wi-Fi model, which first became available for pre-order last month.

The 10.1-inch Toshiba Thrive is shipping with an Nvidia Tegra 2 APU, 1280x800 resolution IPS display, a pair of cameras and Android Honeycomb 3.1. A full-size USB 2.0 port, HDMI-out and SD card slot are also included with the tablet.

According to previous reports, the Thrive may start at just $430 for an 8GB model, while the 16GB and 32GB models are expected to retail for $480 and $580, respectively. Check out the official unboxing video from Toshiba for its new tablet.

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.
