On A Mission for Toshiba & ShesConnected!

I was very excited to receive an email saying I had been chosen as Toshiba Brand Ambassador with ShesConnected and Toshiba Canada! What does this mean exactly? Well SheConnected and Toshiba have asked me to head out to a authorized retailer that sells Toshiba Thrive Tablets and/or Toshiba 3D HDTV's and find out more about one or both. Then I am to come tell all of my lovely readers about what I have learned.

Today we packed up an headed out of town to our closest Future Shop to see what we could find. We live 45 minutes away so we decided we would do some more Christmas shopping while there.

Our mission was very short lived as A was car sick just a few minutes from the store and didn't feel well when we were in the store. I did get a chance to talk to one of the sales ladies about the Toshiba Thrive Tablet and play around with it for a few minutes before A was fully finished in the store.
I have decided not to post all the specs for the Tablet just the ones that really stood out to me as being a great feature. You can find the full specs on the Toshiba Canada website. After playing around with this great tablet I am in love with it! 

I absolutely love how this tablet offers a full SD card slot and a full USB 2.0 and a mini USB port. This means tons of options for extra storage, watching movies, books and more. You can expand your memory up to 32MB.

It is run by an Android Honey Comb 3.1 and you can find tons of apps in the Android Market. I was told there are tons of free apps available. The tablet I was looking at also have the Amazon Kindle app which I love on my netbook. For me I am hooked as it would make it very easy to cook or bake with you favorite recipes right at your finger tips in the kitchen.
The Toshiba Tablet also offers the option for an extra battery for on the go. Now you wont have to worry about being on the go and running out of battery if you have a fully charged spare with you.

Another fun feature is the interchangeable multicolored backplates. I love the dark blue and raspberry pink. I do wish they offered bright orange. Maybe in the future Toshiba Canada?

Want to take pictures from the rear or front of your tablet? This one does both rear is 5MP and front is 3MP but no flash. If it is anything like my phone, I very rarely use my flash. 

So many great features I could go on and on. How about video calling on Wi-Fi? I think I like that feature.
The price is good especially when compared to other tablets on the market. The price ranges from $379.99 to $499.99 depending on the size of storage. I think I would be happy with the 32 GB as it is only $20 more than the 8GB tablet. Also when comparing the others with the Toshiba it is pretty superior.

My overall opinion? I wish we had more time to play with this baby but my baby wasn't feeling well at all. I love it and can't wait to be bringing one home for my family. Actually who am I kidding? I want to be bringing one home for Mommy!  I promise to share it from time to time.

This would make a wonderful gift for your favorite tech lover! You would definitely be the Holiday Hero this Christmas!
