Early this morning, I got a headsup from bosun99uk via Twitter notifying me of a Starcomms Android tablet named myPad.
According to the tweet, the tablet runs Android version 2.1, has a 10.1-inch display, is packaged with a free iZap wifi internet router and free 3 months internet subscription. The package is said to cost N75,000.
I was able to source for the image below:
Oh,notice the hilarous part – the tweet says that Starcomms used the picture of an iPad to advertise their tablet. Yup, that is certainly an iPad in that picture – notice the Apple icons on a supposedly Android tablet. Hope Apple won’t sue. What happened? Haven’t Starcomms taken delivery of a copy of the tablet they are advertising?
No other details on the device yet, but we are hunting. Hang around.
There is already an ongoing discussion in the forums: MyPad from Starcomms
