Aiming to provide Filipino consumers with relevant yet affordable smartphones and tablets, France-based Polaroid, through its distributor RedDot Philippines, recently introduced the Platinum 7 Quad Core, Elixir 7, PROG590 and the PROG160A. This new lineup consists of tablets and smartphones that take consumers to a new level of entertainment, performance, stamina, usability and style. More details after the jump.

Polaroid Platinum 7 Quad Core - P5,250 (SRP)

Presenting a 7-inch touchscreen with 1024 x 600 display resolution, the Polaroid Platinum 7 Quad Core (SRP P5,250) is ideal for watching movies or shows while on the go. The 7-inch display size along with the tablet’s ultrathin design makes it easy to carry around and keep inside a bag. It is a perfect choice for students and travelers.

The use of a quad-core processor with 1.2GHz and 1GB RAM is good as it gives potential users the promise of responsiveness and speedy performance on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. Running on the latest version of Android OS, the Platinum 7 Quad Core is compatible with many applications that are available on Google Play as well as Amazon Appstore. Users should not worry installing as many apps as they can because the tablet comes with built-in 8GB storage. If it is still not enough, simply insert a 32GB microSD card.

With the poise of a portable entertainment hub, the Platinum 7 Quad Core is not complete without a host of connectivity options. It natively supports Wi-Fi which is necessary when watching streaming videos on the Internet. Apart from Micro USB and audio jack, it also has an HDMI that allows users to connect it to their HDTV.
