Gadget distributor CloudFone has made history several days ago after it released the first Android Lollipop tablet in the Philippines, the CloudPad One 7.0. The price and specs can be seen below.
Aside from having the latest Android OS, the 7-incher device will be powered by an Intel Chipset. It will have 1.83GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor with an Intel HD graphics GPU for a smooth mobile gaming experience.
Initially, CloudPad One 7.0 will have 8GB of internal storage but users can expand it up to 32GB with its built-in micro SD card slot. It also has 1GB of internal memory. CloudPad One 7.0 features front and rear cameras; 1.3 megapixels for selfies and video calls, and 5 megapixels for random photo shoots, respectively.
Unfortunately, unlike other tablets which have 4G, 3G, or even 2G connectivity, this device can only be connected online using WiFi. It has embedded Bluetooth and supports USB OTG.
The advantage of this device is it can stay up to date for up to 2 years. It will receive regular android updates over the air (OTA) for that span of time.
The 4000mAh battery capacity perhaps, lets you enjoy 7 to 8 hours of online browsing, 5 – 6 hours of video streaming, and depending on your daily activities, it can last for up to 10 hours.
