The Tecno Phonepad 3 we told you about has finally been launched into the Kenyan market today. The device is made with the business person in mind. Someone who wants to be fully productive on the go and never wants to lose a minute of work. I feel described here. I’m an entrepreneur running a rather busy outfit and I’m always on the go. As I write this, I’ve just arrived from some work assignment in Nyamira. As long as I have internet, I can work from anywhere any time. And by this I mean a good number of times I can work from Nairobi traffic.
The Tecno Phonepad 3 is here to answer to the person who feels that a phone is too small to cover daily work, and yet a laptop is too much to lug around all the time. In fact in many instances it is not practical to have a laptop all the time.
So what makes the Tecno Phonepad 3 a business communication device to consider?
Price – It comes at the price of 22,199/- which I feel is a good price. Not too high a budget as is the case with other tablets which one can use on the go.
Speed – The device is enabled with ultra fast 4G LTE connectivity for fast browsing and fast sharing of files across the internet. It also supports dual SIM functionality so you do not have to leave your ‘other’ line out.
Large screen – It is one thing to play candy crush on a small screen and it is quite another to actually get serious work done on one. For business documents, one would actually want a bigger screen and the Tecno Phonepad 3 combines both good screen size and portability with its 7 inch HD screen. This goes right along with the tabs tagline, ‘do business, stay mobile’.
Battery – It has a 4100mAh battery and as long as you’re using it for business, a full charge will support you for 2 full days. Quite the assurance that you’ll not run out of juice before you complete and send that proposal. Of course one would expect this duration to shorten considerably if they throw some leisure to the mix.
Memory – Your documents and graphics have enough storage on the devices 16GB internal memory, expandable to 128GB via microSD. Memory is 2GB RAM.
Security – You’ll secure your business documents and graphics and only you can open the tab with the fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint knob also works as a mini touchpad for scrolling when reading or browsing.
Intelligent Business Apps – What struck me immediately as far as business apps are concerned is CamCard – software that scans business cards and stores contacts. Goodbye to keeping hundreds of paper business cards. The CamScanner will scan documents with a single tap and WPS Office will make office operations easy on the tab and on the go.
Beauty – The Tecno PhonePad 3 has a brushed metal finish, which gives it quite an edge.
The device is available in all retail shots countrywide. We’ll be doing a full review of the device once we’ve used it.
