Handling

The Toshiba Thrive rests in your hands fairly easily if you hold it at a landscape orientation. You should be careful not to put your hands over the oddly-placed front camera though, as it is very easy to block and smudge up with your fingers. Toshiba seems to have gone out of their way to make sure that the Thrive was lighter than the iPad 2, so there isn't a lot of fatigue when holding the it over long periods of time.
