ShesConnected - Checking out Toshiba Tablets

Did you know Canada.. Saturday after hockey we headed to the big city for some Christmas shopping. We hit up the local Future Shop and had a look at the awesome Toshiba Tablets!  At the ShesConnected conference I learned a bit about their new tablets, since the conference by my husband and I have gotten smart phones with the Android system so I was really excited to check out a tablet using Android!

First, even though it was so early we had to park pretty far away..

Good thing I brought a helper to help me find the tablets!

Looks like a good price for the 8GB Wi-FI version of the tablet..

I loved that they had an extra information sheet you could review..

And what I reeeeally love is that you can change the back colour on the tablets as well, Toshiba Canada thinks of everything..

Looks like they even have a couple left!!  I hope Santa gets shopping soon  :-)

We discussed with a Future Shop employee - the great thing about the Toshiba Tablet is how customizable it is - I LOVE the home screen.  Powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb, you can browse the web, read e-books, play tons of games, listen to music, use the TWO cameras, and more.  The Future Shop employee let us know the colours on the tablet were fantastic and everything looks so great on it, the touch screen responds quickly, it charges lightening fast, everyone appreciated that it includes Adobe Flash and it does, well, everything!  They find many people are replacing their laptop with this tablet as it truly does everything they need.

I've been researching it more since we got home and every review you read is glowing, just fantastic and no problems at all (which doesn't always happen with new technology).  This would make a fantastic gift for ANYONE - students, younger children as a learning tool, on the go 20 year olds, Moms & Dads, everyone!

Be sure to stay up to date with Toshiba Canada by following them on Facebook and Twitter!

I am participating in the Toshiba Brand Ambassador program by www.ShesConnected.com. I received a Toshiba Camileo in exchange for my participation in this campaign. The opinions on this blog are my own.


  1. They really are reasonably priced!

  2. Granted $320 is good price for what seems to be a solid tablet from a reputable company. But compared to other tablets it's definitely on the "lite" side. It has some interesting features though (besides changing colours) like: full-sized USB & HDMI connectors, a full-size SD card reader, a dock, and a replaceable battery.

    Personally I would definitely consider buying one, but I would still use the "big" computer for storing all the data and doing the heavy lifting.

    But I hope Toshiba updates the Thrive to Android 4.

    And I would hope the price will drop even further especially since the follow-up to the Thrive (the Excite) is on it's way!

    But check-out some of the other reviews of tablets, for example Hardware Canucks: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/?s=tablet

    Or Mobile Syrup: http://mobilesyrup.com/?s=tablet

  3. oh I bet the store was so busy this time of year, good to hear they still have a few left!

  4. Those tablets look so slick, though I have to say I couldn't care less about being able to customize the colour.

  5. Great post - thanks so much for participating in the Toshiba Brand Ambassador Program from ShesConnected
