Torque Droidz Drive: 7-inch Android 4.0 Tablet with Call-SMS for Php3,999


Torque Droidz Drive: Most Affordable Call and SMS 7-inch Android Tablet?

Torque is gearing up to give local tablet brands a major run for their money with the impending release of the Torque Droidz Drive. The specs aren’t really mind-blowingly good but it’s a killer deal considering the crazy price of Php3,999. Based on what we’ve found online so far, the Torque Droidz Drive has a 7-inch display, runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and is powered by an AllWinner 1.2Ghz processor. What makes it a compelling offer though is that it has call and text features. Coolness.

Here’s what we know so far about the specs. Note that this isn’t all confirmed since we just got this from various sources online.

Toruqe Droidz Drive Partial Spec Sheet

  • 1.2GHz AllWinner CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, expandable up to 32GB via microSD Card
  • 7.0-inches WVGA Capacitive Touchscreen, 800×480 resolution
  • 2.0-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • SIM Card slot, Call and Text features
  • WiFi
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Supports 3G Dongle

3G not built-in?

Based on the specs it looks like the Torque Droidz Drive does have a SIM card slot but not necessarily good for 3G mobile internet connectivity. Instead of indicating in the spec sheet that it has 3G and WiFi tethering/hotspot, they just said that it supports 3G dongles. We’ll confirm this once we get more info from Torque.

Anyway, we’ll keep you guys posted on this budget tablet when it launches on May 31.
