The EKEN T01A 7” Tablet probably will be the best tablet for you. This is the next big thing among the recent droid tablets being retailed to Pinoy gadgeteers and has indeed satisfied a multitude of budget-conscious consumers to date. Considering it is a China-made tablet, it has something more than what you would expect on a low-class category tech apparatus.
I know we’ve got a lot of 7-inch tablets in the market today, but what makes the T01A standout among the rest?
IT’S CREAMIER THAN EVER
T01A supports the latest Android OS in the market which is the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) particularly version 4.0.3. For the price of almost USD 100 (PhP 4,300-4,500) it’s the best thing to experience the ICS on this tablet. ICS has made an outstanding innovation in creating a system that will
work on both phones and tablets – a merge between the Gingerbread and Honeycomb versions which are device specific systems for Android-based machines.
This device cannot run an ICS platform without the proper hardware. T01A is equipped with a 1.2Ghz Allwinners/Softwinners (brand) single core processor which I can say is satisfying enough to provide you with hours of productivity, fun and entertainment.
Aside from its decent co-processor, the device is paired with an 8GB DDR3 RAM and a Mali 400 GPU – enough to run a multitude of games in the “Google Play” Market.
MULTI-TOUCH IT IS
EKEN’s Touch panel is a 5-point capacitive touch screen which is highly responsive. I never had problems navigating through the home-screens (akin to the computer desktop) or even interfacing with several “apps” (applications) via the touch panel. This is a major breakthrough among Android-based tablets after the Gingerbread OS. The employment of multi-touch screen panels has made a near-competitive setup to that of the iPad.
BANG FOR THE BUCK
Being an Android device means cheaper costs in production. That is why tablet wannabees might want to consider buying ‘Droid’ tabs as an alternative. Furthermore, thousands of apps abound the online market that will satisfy your every need while you use your tablet PC. By the way, most of these apps are free! But even the full featured and paid apps are affordable.
CHEAPEST IN THE MARKET
The T01A is by the far the cheapest one sold in the market. Compared to similar tablets in its category, this guy has a good price-to-quality ratio: firmware upgrades, community support to name a few have made it a top item among Pinoy hardware enthusiasts.

Despite the coolness of the EKEN tablet, this device has its own shortcomings (as every device does) like short battery span and low level volume from its built-in speakers. Nevertheless, the EKEN tablet is still a good option for those who are in a tight budget yet striving to get their hands on an ICS powered device.
