Tecno Phantom Pad (a.k.a Tecno N9) is an 8.0-inch Android tablet with fast processors and fast internet for your entertainment and communications. It is the first tablet from Tecno and looking at the price and specs of this device compared with that of competitors, it seems Tecno is leading the fight against the over-pricing of tablets in Nigeria.
8-inch Android Tablet
With Tecno now building 5-inchers, it was only a matter of time before they land a tablet, the Phantom Pad is that tablet and is more or less like an enlarged Tecno Phantom A+. It features a reasonable 1.2GHz quad-core processor, which on paper is more powerful that the dual-core processors on latest generation Samsung Galaxy Tab while still coming at up to 15,000 Naira cheaper, making it probably the best value tablet in Nigeria right now.
Tecno Phantom Pad runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), which should offer decent performance with 1GB RAM. You can make cellular calls and SMS on the Phantom Pad. The tablet also supports 2 SIMs, probably the first dual-SIM tablet we have published on this site.
The 8.0-inch display is bright and crisp with 768 x 1024 pixels resolution. The Tecno Phantom Pad features 2 cameras; a 5 megapixels camera with 720p HD video recording and flash at the back and 2 megapixels front facing camera for videocalling on Skype and similar services.
