Best Buy Fails Thrive
Stopped by my local Best Buy with intention of taking close look at Thrive and the Samsung 10.1.
Played with Samsung 10.1 first. Nice screen, light tablet, everything worked as expected. The lack of connections though does bug me. Just hate to be charged extra for any connecting cables I might find I need.
Walked over to Thrive and screen was dead. Tried to start it up - no dice. I waved a customer service guy over and asked him if this was suffering from "sleep of death". He laughed uncomfortably and mumbled something about yes and we haven't gotten the software patch yet to fix it.
Has't that update been pushed out by Toshiba already? If it has, why wouldn't Best Buy make certain they had it installed on display model.
I left store disappointed and still wondering if Thrive is right tablet for me.
