Tokova is not the most popular Android tablet manufacturer. In fact, I am willing to bet that about 99% of you probably haven’t even heard about it before. But when it comes getting respect in the mean streets of your neighborhood, this company’s tablets might be your best option. A good ol’ tablet just doesn’t seem to be enough for Soulja Boy fans, as the rapper has partnered with Tokova to release a couple exclusive tablets.
The Soulja Boy Edition tablets come in two versions – the Tokova Tiger Shark (image to the right) and Tokova Great White. Both feature an exclusive design with the singer’s name and image. Aside from that, these tablets offer the same as their original editions. Which makes it seem like Tokova is simply using Soulja Boy’s popularity to drive a few sales.
On paper, these tablets don’t seem as horrible as one would think. The $400 Tiger Shark is a 7-inch pad with Android 4.0, a 1.2 GHz processor and 64 GB of internal storage. Meanwhile, the Great White goes for $500 and offers a 9.5-inch display, Android 4.0, a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
For what it’s worth, these seem like very capable devices. But they are rather expensive, at least considering the company’s fame (or lack thereof). And taking the competition into consideration, it is very hard for us to figure out who would be able to take advantage of these. Other than raging Soulja Boy fans.
If they follow Soulja Boy’s example, they probably like to throw away money and blow their noses with $100 bills. Wasting your money should be no issue. All 5 of you can now raid the store and get your new tablets now. I will stick with my Nexus 7.
