Tablet wars.

I spent a few minutes playing around with a Toshiba Thrive tablet.

Toshiba Thrive tablet

It feels flimsier and more sluggish than my iPad 2. But it does Flash video and has a ton of connectivity options. And, more importantly, the 8GB model only costs $399. I’m glad to see a tablet maker try to compete with Apple on price since no one can seem to compete with them on quality.

Now they just need to try a little harder. I wouldn’t recommend a Thrive at $399. But a $249 Thrive would be a lot more interesting.
