      It may be single core, but used to power up Netbooks few years back, sum it up, performance shouldn’t be a problem for Tablets or Phones.

      Another “Must be Quad-Core” person, you people really need to be educated about processors that isn’t all about the “Cores”.

      Have you seen the benchmark scores of the fonepad?
      Have a look what pinoytechblog posted : http://www.pinoytechblog.com/archives/asus-launches-the-fonepad-7-inch-phonetablet-starting-at-p11999#comments

      I rather have 16 hours of battery life in 3G time rather than just less than 12 for a quad-core that heats up like crazy.

    Pricing’s just about fair I guess…..pero ang pinakahihintay ng lahat ay yung Nexus 7 ver 2.0 (possibly a 1080p + Snapdragon)
