Unboxing Starmobile Engage, a 7-Inch Android Ice Cream Sandwich!

We learned about Starmobile as the newest player in the country’s mobile industry when it launched locally new dual-SIM phones back in July.

The truth is, the company just took its dibs in the tablet business by offering a new 7-incher Android slate running that magnificent Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) flavour. This tablet is none other than the Starmobile Engage!

CTB is very fortunate to have an early hands-on of the Engage. I already have dated with the device yesterday and while I’m still checking its entirety inside and out, allow me to share some of the unboxing pics for your viewing pleasure. (more…)

BlackBerry Curve 9220 Review

RIM Philippines sent CTB a review unit of its latest addition to the BlackBerry lineup in the country, the BlackBerry Curve 9220. The Curve 9220 is RIM’s latest offering for its entry-level Curve lineup yet it carries the latest version of the company’s proprietary mobile platform, the BlackBerry OS 7.1. Announced back in April, the BlackBerry Curve 9220 finally made its way in the Philippines a month later, and RIM Philippines brought the handset here in Cebu in June. This handset is marketed to appeal mostly for young smartphone users and teens alike, or as its category suggest – the Curve 9220 is for “entry-level” users. I have had so many quick encounters with BlackBerry devices in the past and I must admit that this is the first time I dated a BlackBerry phone, so I guess I had enough time to see myself what this handset has to offer inside and out. Anyhow, CTB’s full review of the BB Curve 9220 follows after the break.
The Build

The BlackBerry Curve 9220 measures 109 x 60 x 12.7 mm and in real world, it means it could sit comfortably in the palm of a typical Asian user. It’s not too big, nor too small – just an average-sized handset. In the frontage is the usual BB signature, that is the QWERTY keyboard; and the 2.44-inch display is just right above the row of useful keys namely (from left): the Send key, Menu Key, the Optical Trackpad, Escape Key, and End/Power Key. The phone’s earpiece speaker is just right above the screen beside the Notification LED. (more…)
