Appears the Toshiba Thrive will be available at Best Buy, among others, starting next Sunday. It differentiates itself by offering full-sized USB, HDMI and SD ports, along with a user-replaceable battery. According to a Toshiba press release, "Available memory configurations include 8GB ($429.99 MSRP4), 16GB $479.99 MSRP4) and 32GB ($579.99 MSRP4) models. Full retail availability at major retailers and e-tailers, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Radio Shack and hhgregg, will begin in mid-July." Looks like with the right SD card, you can "roll your own" 40gb model for under $500! The Engadget "hands on" is here.
