Smart is offering the Cherry Mobile Superion or the ZTE V9 Android tablet for only P200 a month if you sign up for a Smart Bro SIM-only Plan 999. The deal is for a 24-month contract so all in all, you pay P4,800 for any of the tablets being offered. This price is still quite cheap not to mention light on the pocket considering you’ll only be forking out P200 every month. This is of course on top of the P999 monthly service fee for the Smart Bro SIM-only Plan 999. Under this plan, you get unlimited mobile Internet service with maximum speed of up to 2MBps.
The market for this deal are first time tablet users who are tight on their budget but nonetheless need a device with unlimited internet connection.
The Cherry Mobile Superion and ZTE V9 are both 7-inch tablets with capacitive multi-touch screens. They feature 600MHz CPUs and run on Android 2.2 Froyo. These could be sufficient for first time users with minimal speed requirements but for those looking for speedier tablets, you better look elsewhere. A 600MHz CPU combined with Android 2.2 OS doesn’t offer a buttery smooth tablet performance but for simple tasks and basic apps, this set-up will do. The Cherry Mobile Superion and ZTE V9 have WiFi and 3G connectivity options, so users can access the Android Market for downloading apps.
These tablets are also being offered by Smart on prepaid for P9,995 through its online store.
