Internet Apps

Because the Thrive runs Android 3.1 and has access to the Android Market, you should have no difficulty finding an application for just about anything you could want on your tablet. There are adaptive learning software applications, games, fantasy football apps, eReader software, new media players and a litany of other pieces of software that you can buy and download right to your tablet. Outside of the Apple App Store, you will not find a larger application market online.

Other Internet Features

Possibly one of the cooler aspects of having an Android tablet that's decked-out with the hardware to make the most of it is the ability to talk over Gmail or Skype with face time. Load up either of the applications, and then simply call your friend. Once they pick up the user-facing camera will flick on, and allow you to chat with your friends much like you would at home.
