On Tokova's website the Soulja Boy Edition Tiger Shark and Great White are currently price at $499 and $399 respectively.

Both devices seem rather expensive when compared to other tablets already available and furthermore, don't seem to differ too much in terms of their specifications and cost from Tokova tablets that aren't branded with Soulja Boy's image or logo.

Ultimately Tokovva seem to relying on the appeal of Soulja Boy's power as a music and entrepreneurial to shift units. Whether their tablets prove a success on these merits remains to be seen.
