Bmorn V16 : Very Affordable Android 4.0 ICS Ultra-Thin Tablet! Has 7-inch Glass Capacitive Touchscreen, Metal Back Case!

TechPinas Exclusive!

Most of the Android tablets currently out in the Philippines still run the borderline-dated Android Honeycomb operating system - and not to mention, their price tags are also a bit on the steep side.

Now, if you want to experience the latest version of Android and you're on a tight budget, then you might want to check out this tablet that Martin, my friend from WidgetCity, sent me last week --

Priced at only Php 6,500, Bmorn V16 runs Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with its 1.5 GHz processor and handles multitasking with 512MB of RAM. It flaunts a 7-inch glass capacitive touchscreen and a back case made of anodized aluminum!

Here's how it looks in the flesh --

As you can see, the tablet has a button-less face and even comes with a 0.3 MegaPixel front facing camera which you can also use for video calls.

But - putting its Android ICS OS aside - what I love about Bmorn V16 is how thin it is. Measuring only 8.8 millimeters on its thickest side, this tablet is almost as thin as the far more expensive iPad2. Also, like Apple's slate, it comes with a durable and elegant full metal back case, giving it a totally solid feel when you hold it in your hand.

I mean, how many sub Php 10,000 tablets look as good as this?

Let's turn it on!

Sure, Bmorn V16 doesn't have the ultra-crisp-and-bright display, full range of sensors and dual-core processor of the more expensive Android tablets available in the market; But all things considered - its super pocket-friendly Php 6,500 price tag, Android ICS operating system, support for practically all Android apps out there, gorgeous design and durable construction - Bmorn V16 is a slate that's very hard to ignore.
