PLDT TelPad: Landline, DSL & Android Tablet

Last night, PLDT announced its new landline service called PLDT TelPad, a landline and broadband DSL service packed in an Android Tablet.

The PLDT TelPad is and Android 2.2. Froyo tablet powered by a 1Ghz Cortex A8. That means users can download apps and play on the 7-inch tablet. It comes with a 2GB internal storage but there’s an SD card slot and a USB port to extend that.

The TelPad also carries a 2-megapixel front camera for still shots and videoconference calls. I think calls can be made via a Bluetooth headset. It also comes with a dock for charging and an HDMI port that can be hooked into your TV.

The service starts at Plan 1849 which includes a landline number and a 1Mbps DSL connection. If you’re an existing PLDT myDSL customer, you can upgrade to this plan for an additional Php500 per month. The Android tablet comes free with the package.

Other PLDT TelPad plans are Plan 2099 at 1.5 Mbps (Php2,099 per month), Plan 3095 at 2.5 Mbps (Php3,095), and Plan 4100 at 3.5 Mbps (Php4,100).

  1. naku ha! sobra naman itong pldt 3yrs yong lock in mo sa kanila para telpad tapos kung pinacancel mo yong Telpad service after the lock-in period ibabalik sa kanila ang unit???? bibili nalang ako ng samsung tab 15k lang mas upgraded pa.sana man lang after 3 yrs bigay nila sa kanilang mga subscriber yong unit anyway by that time laspag na yong unit…kagaya sa ibang malalaking telecompany pag nagpa postpaid ka bibigyan ka ng cellphone then 2 yrs lang mostly yong lock in mo..

      ang ganda nila mag offer sa telpad pero mahina ang service nila kasi di naman lagi nasa ayos ang mga unit pag nagloko ang unit mo di mo alam kung saan mo ipapaayos nagtuturuan lang sila at the end iuuwi mo yung unit mo na sira pa rin walang kwenta ang after sales service nila.Mai stress ka lang kasi yung binabayaran mo di ka satisfied sa service nila.Tatapusin ko lang ang lock in period ko pati unit nila kanila na.iflix at fox di mo din magagamit kasi dami code hinihingi wala naman sila binibigay na access code.
