Qube QuadCore PhoneTab: An Affordable iPad Mini Lookalike with Phone and 3G Capabilities

Qube QuadCore PhoneTab

If you’re looking for an affordable tablet that does it all, you might want to take a look at the upcoming Qube QuadCore PhoneTab. The QuadCore PhoneTab is a fairly well-specced tablet, featuring an 8 inch HD (800 x 1280) PLS display from Samsung, a 1.2GHz A7 quad core processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. And if you didn’t catch it from the name, it also supports 3G data and telephony functions.

The design looks fairly premium and it’s actually pretty thin at 8.7mm. While it does resemble the iPad Mini, there are other 8 inch tablets that rip it off more blatantly. If you’re looking to grab one, it’s due out in February at an introductory price of Php6,999. You can also buy it on credit (6 months, 0%). Either way, you’ll get a free leather case for it.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
