Soulja Boy tablet to be launched
Hip Hop artist, Soulja Boy, is collaborating with Android tablet manufacturer Tokova on the release of two tablets.
The Tokova Soulja Boy Edition tablets will be released in two formats: the 7-inch 'Tiger Shark' and the 9-inch 'Great White'. Both feature an exclusive cosmetic design based around Soulja Boy's name and image.
The 7-inch Tiger Shark boasts .2 GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The more expensive 9-inch Great White model sports a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage. Both tablets run off the 4.0 Android Operating System. On Tokova's website the Soulja Boy Edition Tiger Shark and Great White are currently price at $499 and $399 respectively. The specifications for both devices are listed on Tokova's website and are as follows:
Display: 7” Display 1024X600
Display: 9.5” Display 1024X768 IPS
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.
