The OmniPad R72 runs on Android Jellybean out of the box which will be displayed on its 7-inch LCD screen. Under the hood of this budget slate is a RockChip (RK2926) Cortex-A9 processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB of on-board storage. It’s also equipped with a pair of optics; 2MP on the back and VGA at the front.

NEO OmniPad R72 specs:
7-inch TFT LCD, 480×800 @133ppi
1GHz RockChip RK2926 single-core processor
Mali 400 GPU
Expandable 4GB internal storage (up to 32GB)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2MP rear camera
VGA front-facing camera

While the OmniPad R72’s features may not be so enticing for the prying eyes, it may just get a second-look from consumers on a budget as its competitively priced at Php3,999. If you want a more decent slate, you can also opt for its dual-SIM counterpart (M71-3G) which currently retails for Php6,999.

    Can’t believe that Neo’s still in business. They managed to survive despite all that fierce competition in our computing space.

      Yeah. Beats me how NEO managed to survive after all the lack of consumer interest in their products. Their products don’t sell well but they’re still freaking alive. And this? They released a tablet whose specs belong to 2009.
      Come on, NEO it’s not 2009 anymore!

    With that specs and price; Id like to say to NEO “Are you effin’ kidding me?” I bet no ones gonna buy that except for your grandmother who cant walk past the NEO kiosk complaining of arthritis.

    to NEO mgmt: consider rebranding Cherry Mobile tablets. That way you can offer better specs to your prospect buyers.

    I’d rather get the Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt than to get this POS Neo Tablet.
