Toshiba Thrive’s unboxing video trades showing actual tablet for comedy, awesomeness

Not very often do we come across a video that manages to both disappoint us and impress us at the same time. But that’s exactly what happened with Toshiba’s unorthodox unboxing video of its upcoming Honeycomb tablet, the Thrive.

The video seems to be just your regular, good ol’ unboxing video until 25 seconds in. The guy blows our mind by pulling our friend Andy out of the box. Naturally, Andy starts doing what he likes to do the most:  full-on breakdancing. I’m not sure what happens after, since it’s hard to take my eyes off Andy’s cute little self. But I think I saw some spaceships and lasers somewhere in there as well. On the downside, the actual Thrive tablet is nowhere to be found on the video.

Toshiba is giving everybody a chance to win one of these tablets via contest. You can get all the details here. If you win, you could be the proud of owner of an Android tablet with the following specs:

  • Android 3.1 Honeycomb
  • 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 10.1-inch LED screen with a 800 x 1280 pixels resolution
  • 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera and 2 MP front-facing camera
  • 720p video recording
  • SD card slot
  • USB and mini-USB ports
  • HDMI port

Not too shabby, Toshiba. What say you, dear readers? Do you see a Toshiba Thrive in your near future?
