Tablet Shopping with Toshiba and ShesConnected

As many of you will know, I love my technology. We lost track a long time ago of how many computers, digital cameras, and other devices we have in our home. So I was particularly delighted to be chosen as a Toshiba Brand Ambassador with ShesConnected. I have been happily blogging away on my own Toshiba Satellite C650D laptop for about a year and a half now, so I know the brand quality is great. And I had a chance to check out more products at this fall's ShesConnected conference. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked the Toshiba Passive 3D TV they had on display. 3D movies are not my thing as I tend to get motion sickness and headaches while watching them. But the depth of the 3D image on this TV was beautiful, and my body didn't freak out watching it. As a Brand Ambassador I look forward to discovering more!
So, ShesConnected and Toshiba gave me my assignment - check out either the 3D TVs or the Toshiba Tablets, and write about what I learned. I chose the Tablet for my recon mission, and I headed off to FutureShop.

The Toshiba Tablets start at $379, for the 8GB model, but were on sale when I was there. This seems a very reasonable price for this kind of technology. These tablets run on the Android 3.1 operating system and are Adobe Flash compatible, allowing for a better web-browsing experience. (So many sites and games use Flash.) The 10.1 inch display is a comfortable size for viewing, and the touch screen technology is so easy to use.

The 5.0 megapixel camera has on-screen controls, as opposed to a physical button. You can easily take still images or video. The + and - zoom buttons make for quick adjustments in your focus. There is also a front-facing camera, at 2.0 megapixels.

Clearly very popular. Lots of empty shelf space.

This tablet comes in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models, with Wi-Fi and bluetooth connectivity. Inputs include USB 2.0, SD slot, full-size HDMI, and a headphone jack.  Do you know what HDMI means? Well, it means you can connect to your TV to view video and images on the big screen.

The Toshiba tablet would make a great gift this holiday season. Light, thin, and portable entertainment and information source on the go.
