Tokova comes out of the blue with two Soulja Boy special edition tablets

Tokova comes out of the blue with two Soulja Boy special edition tablets
Tokova is not a brand most of you have heard of - we ourselves discovered it recently, but its partnership over Android tablets with rapper Soulja Boy is definitely looking like one of the better attempts of a low-key company to gain mainstream approval.

Tokova is releasing two tablets - the Tokova Tiger Shark and Tokova Great White, both with alluring design and the rapper’s name and image easily noticeable. Now, that’s the only difference from the original Tokova tablets, but if using that celebrity endorsement could help, we don’t see a sin in the company’s marketing efforts.

Now, the two tablets definitely don’t look bad, but the price might be just a bit overinflated. The 7-inch Tokova Tiger Shark costs $400 and arrives with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1.2GHz processor and 64GB of internal storage. The Tiger Shark is one of the thinnest on the market currently with its 0.4-inch thick body. The price is set at $400, which seems a bit pricey when compared to the cutting edge but still nearly twice cheaper Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

The Tokova Great White is the bigger slate, coming with a 9.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. It also runs on ICS and features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and again 64 gigs of internal storage. The price for the 9.5-incher is set at $500.

Now, the tablets definitely don't look bad, but would you be willing to get a device from a brand like Tokova that not many people have heard of? Check out the pictures below and let us know in the comments section.

I mean Soulja Boy, REALLY?!?!? & what the heck is a Tokova?!?!? I guess Tokova could only get Soulja Boy because Jay Z, Nas, Kanye West, & other big time rappers would not put their name on Tokova!

This just pissed me off....Let me think of some positives to this...In fact I don't even want to go into why I hate Soulja Boy because it would make it seem like I hate my own race... And nope....I don't won't his face on none of the sh!t I buy...

Oh my god. Tokova? As if if you had a f*cking chance to sell without soulja boy editions. What were they thinking. Going down in history as one of the stupidest marketing moves ever.

ROFLMFAO!!! haha, do they really think an endorsement from Soulja Boy will help them sell those things, they'd sell more if the put Vanilla Ice's face on the back, it would at least be humorous, but Soulja Boy.... smh, just awful

I'm not broke in the first place, in the second place it was a joke, and in the third place when was the last time you heard someone say "dude, i just bought that new soulja boy album."

this marketing plan will work 4-5 yrs ago but not today. Soulja boy is an outdated artist with one hit song! The tablet is a loser! Never heard of the brand and soon to be outdated

I would have considered the tablet without soulja boy's endorsement due to the decent specs, but the endorsement devalues the tablet in my eyes.

Imagine how embarrassing it would be to pull out your tablet and have to explain to someone every time why there is a picture of Soulja Boy on the back! LOLOLOL

What you don't understand is Tokova products have been around for over 5years. The pad is truly amazing,it is a unlocked global smart phone just stick in a Sim Card after you touch down in Japan and your good. No more charges! You can also have your business line and personal on the same phone or pad. Soulja Boy is just the first of many to come that will use Tokova products for their own brand. With Iyap.me and all products being credit cards, it's truly a no brain er. Tokova has the most rare and bad ass products in the market today tokova534db@gmail
