Nice machine. Not laid out as nice as my Le Pan. I think the display on the Le Pan is more vivid. I find that a little disturbing considering the huge price difference. The Thrive is better built and the quality does shine through. Only been playing with it for a couple days so still a lot to learn about it. Everyone is saying android 3.1 is far superior to 2.2 but I'm not feeling it yet. No skype video on the Thrive which is a huge let down. None on the Le Pan either. I might return the Thrive. It has some nice features and connectivity but I'm not sure its worth twice the price of my le pan.
