Toshiba Thrive sale tagThe clock is really ticking on the $299 10.1″ Toshiba Thrive 16GB Wi-Fi Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet. The folks at deal website Groupon.com have the tablet on special for only 16 more days (if supplies last), you can save $100 or 25% from the standard $399 MSRP the 16GB Thrive tablet carries –with retailer Beach Camera– utilizing this limited time offer.

Groupon is selling the 10.1-inch Toshiba Thrive with the restrictions that one person can only buy two of the tablets but three additional models can be purchased if they are gifted to someone else (friends, family etc.) also you can only place one order for this deal (you can’t use up your two tablet limit with one order and come back to make another order for two tablets).

Quantities as you can imagine are very limited and Groupon points out as much as they say more than 1,000 users have purchased a $299 Toshiba Thrive tablet. Shipping the tablet will cost you a standard fee of $9.95. Groupon is offering the Thrive tablet in partnership with online retailer Beach Camera (see their website).

When you buy the Thrive from Groupon you’ll get the tablet and a cleaning cloth for the touchscreen (if you’ve used a touchscreen device of any kind you already know how valuable that cloth will be).

    The “Thrive” is an obsolete brick. I wouldn’t pay $199 for the heavy, thick beast.

    Now, if it were Toshiba’s new ultra thin tablet, I’d grab one in a nanosecond.
