Soulja Boy Fan? You May be Interested in Soulja Boy Tablet by Tokova

It appears that companies are adopting all kinds of strategies to enter and try to dominate the market today.  One such company, Tokova, you may not have heard of it, is using a rapper’s name to market its new tablets.  Tokova is not a household name in the US, I hadn’t heard of it either, but it may be targeting the streets with the new tablet that comes with a picture of the musician on its cover.  If you do not know who Soulja Boy is, I am sorry I cannot go that far back to introduce him.  Google it.

The Soulja Boy Edition tabs are available in two version – there is the Tokova Great White and the Tokova Tiger Shark.  Both of these editions feature Soulja name and image and an exclusive design.  They are not that different from the original editions though, the features and specs are the same.  The company probably seeks to gain popularity with the artiste’s name on their tablets.

What is interesting though is the features of the tablets – they are not as bad as the name may sound.  The Tiger Shark edition is a 7 inch 1024 X 600 tablet with a 1.2GHz processor, 64GB internal storage, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.  The Great White tablet on the other hand features a 9.5 inch 1024 X 768 screen, a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory.  Both of these tablets have smartphone connectivity features (GSM and WCDMA).

One issue I have with these tablets though is the high pricing.  The cheaper tablet, the Tiger Shark, goes for $400 which is pretty high for a single core tablet even though it has a 64GB memory and a few other features such as an FM radio tuner and a 2MP rear camera.  The 9.5 inch version costs $500 but in my opinion this is pretty high even for a quad core tablet, even for one with Soulja Boy’s image and name on the cover.  Anyway, if you are a fan of Soulja Boy or wish to find out how good Tokova’s tablets are, you can have a look at their site to see where you can order one.
