Search for the Toshiba Tablet for ShesConnected

As part of the Toshiba Ambassador Program  for Sheconnected. I set out to get my hands on a Toshiba Tablet. I wanted to see what it was really like when I held it in my hands. That was a hard task. I went out with my 8 year old daughter - who was my cameraperson for the videos - to see if we could did manage to hold  one in our  hands but we could not actually get it to work. Our first stop was Best Buy. It did feel good in my hands and I did like the position of the buttons. It was a nice size. I can see the kids and I watching movies and playing games on this tablet.

It is pretty to look at. It fit nicely in my hand but the sales associate couldn't get the screen to come on.

Not a bad price.

Lots of products in stock at Best Buy.

So we did check things out at Future Shop. This time we couldn't even hold it. There was not a single Toshiba Tablet on display.
So disappointing. There was no Toshiba Tablet on display.

Some of the features that I do like.....from Toshiba


Powered by Android 3.2™, Honeycomb, this tablet delivers an easy-to-use interface with more customizable features. Enjoy a variety of apps available from the Android Market™, plus a full suite of familiar Google apps, such as Gmail, Google Books, Google Maps, Google Music, Google Videos and more.

I like the idea of the Android because I have an Android phone. I am fully immersed in the Google world, with Gmail, Google Maps etc. I like the idea of have the same-type format for all my devices.

 I hope to have a video of me actually using a Toshiba Tablet Thrive soon!  Stay tuned.
