My CloudPad 700TV


After considering several affordable tablets - with and without TV, I finally made up my mind and got a CloudPad 700TV.  The cost is P6,499 only with the following features:
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • GPRS, EDGE, 3G, HSDPA, HSUPA
  • 7.0” WVGA Capacitive Screen
  • 2 MP rear camera, front camera
  • 1.0 GHz dual core processor
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • ROM: 4 GB, RAM: 512 MB
  • Mobile TV
I really thought I didn't need one; as, I have two mobile phones that can do what a tablet can do.

But, I was wrong! After trying wifey's and daughter's tablets, I found it more convenient to use a bigger screen in surfing the net, watching videos, reading books, and doing other tasks.

Starving Sailor


This lunch, I again experienced Army Navy at Marquee Mall in Angeles City.

As I was starving, I ordered the Starving Sailor Steak Sandwich (Thinly sliced Rib Eye Steak topped with JalapeƱo-cheese spread, green bell peppers and caramelized onions in an 8-inch Sourdough bread.)




It's good and became better with a bottle of SML.  And, it satisfied my starvation.  I again salute you, Army Navy.

Next time, I'd try the Burritos.

Window shopping for a tablet


I was amazed to see that there are so many brands of tablets available in the market today.

As I was window shopping, I saw cheap and affordable units, which are sub P10,000.  Why buy a branded unit at a high cost when you could buy one at a lesser cost?  The features may be not be as many or good as the branded; but, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't need those extra features.

One unit with television caught my attention.  The brand is Cloud Pad and the cost of a 7" is P6,499 only.  An inch larger unit (8") costs a thousand more.  This could be useful when I'm stuck in a traffic.

Another unit that I might consider is the Samsung Tab 2 7" at P8,000 + only.  It has no 3G; but, my Samsung Galaxy S3 is a portable hotspot.

At home, I noticed my daughter changed her tablet already from Samsung Tab 2 to Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt.  She got it for P4,000 only.  Whew!  That's a great deal, I thought.

Let's see what would I get in the next few days.
