It’s been a while since Cloudfone was in the headlines but it seems they’ve been prepping something very interesting while they were out of the limelight. The Cloudfone CloudPad 800W doesn’t look that much different from the wave of iPad Mini-esque Android tablets that have been hitting the market. However what sets it apart is that it’s powered by an Intel processor under the hood!
Yep, the CloudPad 800w features a 2.0GHz dual core Intel Atom processor, which is certainly different from the norm. Other specs include a 7.85″ XGA screen, 1GB RAM and a whopping 32GB of internal storage. It also has dual cameras (5mp/2mp), WiFi, Bluetooth, a 4,600mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Higher clocked dual core Intel Atom processors have sometimes scored well in benchmarks against lower clocked quad core devices with chips made by MediaTek, Rockchip and Qualcomm, so it would be interesting to see compare the CloudPad 800w with quad core and octa core devices that are already out in the market. The 32GB internal storage is also very enticing and is probably the largest amount of on-board storage that’s been offered by any local tablet or smartphone.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the Cloudfone CloudPad 800w, it’s set to retail for Php8,999 and will be available in white. No news yet when it will be released though. Hopefully, I can get my hands on a review unit before then.
