Judging the specs, I believe this a good tablet worthy of your hard-earned cash. We got a fast and powerful dual-core processor, a large 16GB memory that you can expand with a microSD card up to 32GB (that's 48GB in total!), a gig of RAM which should be good enough for more multitasking, basic connectivities such as WiFi/HDMI/Bluetooth/3G connectivity, 3MP rear camera, VGA front camera for video chats, and Android 4.1 Jellybean.

Some of you may think it's so expensive but the specs justifies the price. With the appearance of cheap China tabs and locally branded tabs, we can't stop using its price as our base. But come on people, you get a large screen that has IPS, fast processor, large memory and large RAM, HDMI and Bluetooth (most low-end tablets doesn't have this features), and the large battery. Plus it's not rebranded.

The O+ 9.76 Pad is now available at CMK Cellphones and Quality Cellular.
