Pipo T9

If you’re looking for a budget tablet with a high end screen, the Pipo T9 may pique your interest. It features an octa core 1.7GHz MT6592 processor by MediaTek coupled with a gorgeous 8.9 inch Full HD screen. Also, it drops the generic look that generic Chinese brands like Pipo and Ainol seem to stick to in favor of a much sleeker and more elegant design.

The rest of the specs aren’t anything to sneeze at either. You get 2GB RAM, 32GB of storage and a 7,200mAh battery for what should amount to reasonably good uptime. It also has call/text capabilities, GPS and Bluetooth built in thanks to the MT6592 chip.

Unfortunately, the Pipo T9 isn’t LTE-enabled, nor does it run the latest version of Android. Instead, you’re stuck with 3.75G/HSPA+ and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. I don’t really mind either one that much since my tablet usage habits are different from the way I use my smartphone. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that the Pipo T9 is only priced at $320 internationally (about Php14k).

Pipo may not be the most familiar of brands, but most budget-minded gadget enthusiasts should already know of them. Like Ainol, they have a reputation for squeezing in industry-favorite specs at affordable prices. Unfortunately, Pipo doesn’t have an official presence here, but there are a number of small importers that carry the brand. Or you can always order it via an international online store.

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.
