Tecno has released its latest device in the Kenyan market, the 7-inch Phonepad 3 phablet.

The device has lots of upgrades in performance and design on the PhonePad 7E that was released last year.

According to the Marketing Director of the Tecno Tablet Business Unit, Mr Alvin Huang, the PhonePad 3, is a user friendly high-end device carrying the mission of offering an improved and efficient business life.

“There is a dilemma for modern business man who thinks a phone is too small to deal with some daily work, while laptop is too heavy to carry wherever you go,” said Mr Huang.

It is also 4G LTE enabled connectivity for fast browsing and fast sharing of files across the internet. It also supports dual SIM functionality and also comes with a well-crafted brushed metallic body which is much slimmer.

It also combines both good screen size and portability with its 7 inch HD screen with a 4100mAh battery that can support two full days when fully charged.

FEATURES

The new device boasts an improved memory of 2GB RAM for easy multitasking without lag and equipped with a 16GB internal memory, the storage can be expandable up to 128GB via the MicroSD card slot.

It also comes with more improved security with the fingerprint scanner which also works as a mini touchpad for scrolling when reading or browsing.

It has pre-installed premium applications for enhanced business productivity. Camcard is just like an electronic business card holder which allows you to easily manage those cards and find others’ contact details.

CamScanner comes in handy for scanning documents and taking records at a single tap. WPS Office is paired with the 7-inch display, which makes read, modification and edition become much easier when on-the-go.

The device will be priced at Sh22,199 which is not too high a budget as is the case with other tablets which one can use on the go and is available in all retail shots countrywide.
