I visited SM San Lazaro yesterday where I accidentally pass by the CDR King store on the 3rd floor. I notice that they are now selling their own version of android tablet for a cheaper price of P8800 only. This may not be the cheapest since Kingcom sells joypad tablet for P5000 to 6000 price range. Before CDR King launched their version of laptop apparently they would want to get a chip of the tablet pc market by coming up with fastpad.
CDR King Fastpad is powered by 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor and has an android 2.2 OS, can play 1080P HD videos and supports Adobe Flash 10.1. It has 3MP front facing camera, 7” capacitive touchscreen, HDMI video output, 4Gb expandable to 32Gb internal storage and weighs only for .39kg, specswise its very affordable.
Probably the closest competitor of this product is the Archos AR 70 7” that has 8Gb of internal storage priced above P10K. What seems to be the downside of fastpad is its 3 months warranty (only) and 1 week replacement period which is not good enough if you spent almost P9K for a brand new gadget. A 2200mAh battery may also be inferior as compared to other Android based tablet pc.
