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).
