Do you own a Toshiba Thrive tablet? If so, we have bad news for you. The Japanese manufacturer has announced that both versions of its Thrive tablet – the 10-inch and the 7-inch variety – will have to wait until this fall before the long-awaited update to Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” is ready for deployment.
This disappointing delay was made by one of Toshiba’s forum moderators, who writes that the company is “working hard to bring Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, to [its] Thrive tablets.” The mod acknowledged the update’s original spring release date and apologized for the inconvenience, noting that the update is estimated to be ready for deployment by early fall.
Toshiba, of course, already offers Ice Cream Sandwich on its more recent tablets, such as the Excite. The company is reluctant to reveal the exact reasoning behind yet another delay, but hopefully you won’t have to wait more than a few additional months.
