Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 now in Philippine mobile shops

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Android tablet has finally started to become available in mobile shops in the Philippines. One shop is selling the 16GB wifi/3G version for Php 25,490.00 and the 32GB wifi/3G version for about 29,990.00.

The specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is similar to the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the exception of the display size but still having a resolution of 1280 x 800. The smaller 8.9-inch display produces a better looking image using that same 1280 x 800 resolution.

HTC Flyer 3G price in the Philippines (Android)

Another Android powered tablet has arrived in the Philippines in the form of the HTC Flyer. This Android tablet runs on Android 2.3.3 OS though. I wonder if HTC is going to provide an update to the newer Android 3.0 for tablets. It’s currently priced at about Php 30,000+.

It is powered with a 1.5Ghz processor. The 7-inch screen has a resolution of 1024 x 600. It has a 5-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and a secondary front camera for video calls. The one I found is equipped with 3G but has no voice capabilities unlike the Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000.

It’s really got value in terms of price and specifications if you compare it with the other Android tablets being offered locally. And this is the first Android tablet that comes with Android Honeycomb that is available locally.
