Sneak Peek: YugaTech Android Tablet

Sneak Peek: YugaTech Android Tablet

So TechCrunch had the JooJoo and now YugaTech has an Android Tablet. I’d like to share a sneak peek at the upcoming YugaTech DroPad we had designed with our Taiwanese partner, FoxConn.

It’s not yet finished and what I have here is just a prototype of a 7-inch Android-powered tablet. I wanted to get some feedback from YugaTech readers and maybe share some photos before we finalize this device.

Can’t really share the complete specs but what I can say is that the device will have support for 3G/HSDPA, WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth, an 8GB internal storage, SD card slot (up to 16GB), micro USB port, 3.5mm audio port.


It’s been tested to run Android 1.6 on an Atom Z520 1.33GHz and 1GB of RAM. The specs are pretty basic and minimal so we can offer this to the market at a very affordable price.

At the moment, we are looking at a possible retail price of Php14,999. As for availability, I’m looking at a June 31, 2010 release.

Update: We’re not taking pre-orders at the moment but I will post another announcement when we’re all ready. We’re still talking to a carrier to partner for the 3G service and possibly, a subsidized price.

  53. Muntik na akong maniwala… Kaso nung nakita ko kung kelan na publish yung article, no doubt… April Fool’s prank ni Sir Yuga…LOL

  54. Dave Starr says:

    Almost, Abe, almost. Looks like I am number 50 something in the list people who got ‘hooked’ by not reading the date. I came here to the comments and was going to beg you for reservations for at least three of them .. great tool for a niece in college (of which I have a couple). Sayang. Maybe next year, eh?

    And a special message to someone I saw as I was reading the comments … (if it fits you, you’ll know it) dude, don’t put up a link and beg people like some kind of sad sack. I pia mon (sp) “oh, poor you”. Even street people without a computer sell dusting rags, wipe your windshield or help you back out of parking spaces.

    Talk to people, say something intelligent, value yourself enough not to beg, and join the club.

    Filipino Pride (or any other legitimate pride) starts inside … respect yourself and others follow along … just a tip from one who has been where you are, my friend.

  55. Parang last year lang, Sir Yuga minus the promo of sorts?

  56. OMG. This was all a prank pala. When I read this, I was like, ang cool grabeh. Hahaha.

  57. Someone essentially help to make severely posts I might state.
    That is the very first time I frequented your web page and so far?
    I surprised with the research you made to create this particular submit amazing.

    Excellent task!
