Soulja Boy Designs a Tablet: Superman Dat iPad?

By - Source: Techcrunch | B 29 comments

If an iPad isn't hip enough for you, don't worry, your favorite rapper has you covered.

Thanks to a collaboration between Android tablet maker Tokova and Soulja Boy, you can have your very own special edition Soulja Boy branded tablet.

Of course you'll have to pay a hefty premium for it. The Tiger Shark Soulja Boy Edition features a 7-inch screen, running Android 4.0 and comes in at a beefy price of $399. (Who would possibly buy a $199 Nexus 7 when you could have a Soulja Boy tablet for only double the cost?!)

If you'd like a bigger, tablet with even more rapper swagger, Tokova is also offering a Soulja Boy branded "Great White" tablet which comes in at 9.5 inches with a price tag of $499.

If you are in desperate need of a rapper branded tablet and happen to have $500 to throw away, you can order your own Soulja Boy tablets directly from Tokova's online store here.

    What a particularly strange screen layout, it almost appears that it's sole design purpose was to fit a background of himself in portrait mode.

    On a side note I believe the only way to expression my feelings about this tablet is -> dafuq?

    (Who would possibly buy a $199 Nexus 7 when you could have a Soulja Boy tablet for only double the cost?!) you pay double the price to buy that ugly thing just for the name of Soulja Boy?

    $399? If it's NASA certified for space travel, then I am tempted to, but certainly not this gimmick.

    I thought it was at least 5-6 years ago.

    Words like iPad, Android, Google, and tablet in one article that's not about lawsuit? I don't think that's even possible, until i read this one.

    I don't know who's the dude. Even if i do, i ain't paying US200 more just to see his ugly face as a wallpaper.

    If it's some porn actress naked photo, i might consider though.

    Well it better have a decent set of hardware AND speakers.
    Still we all know it's going to fail quite hard. So many better deals without paying for a brand(or.. person) name.

    The bar on stupidity set by Apple has been lowered. After iCrap almost nothing could be considered stupid enough, but this out does it.

    Ahahahahhahah!!
    I just had a look at the specs! If you compare with other products of the same company, you will find out that there is only a mono core proc and 1GB memory... Even if the sound system is the best ever the value of this will never reach the price they are asking for. Maybe 2 years ago...

    Just because he offered his image to a tablet doesn't mean he "designed" it. Get your headline right Tom's.

    What the (Insert swear word here) is the world coming to, honestly, soulja boy? Really? Shiiiiiiiiiiiit. Well whoever is dumb enough to buy this thing deserves being ripped off by some washed up wanna be rapper from two years ago. Actually the specs make sense when you consider the guy on it was popular about 2 years ago...

    He sang that song where he says "Superman that ho"!

    Do you know what that means!?

    Instead of "finishing" in your hand or in a condom do it on her back then slap the sheets on her back and she's been "Supermaned!" LOL
