Yet again, Tecno mobile has unleashed a stunning tablet device called the S9. This device comes with a very slim bezel for better portability and handling. Its wide 7 inch screen is also ideal for gaming experience and watching movies. It also has dual SIM slots to allow for more than one network; 1GB RAM, 3G, Wi-Fi and other nice features.
Although it feels good to see Tecno-Mobile jump off the 512MB bandwagon once in a while, but this tablet’s camera power is a no no. 2 mega pixels? come on Tecno.

I agree with that, but this is 2014, 0.3MP is too weak to Skype with, or take selfies even. I remember the 2MP camera on my old Nokia which took pictures that looked horrible and pale on its small screen, now when you distribute those same pixels onto a 7-inch screen what do you get? I wouldn’t want to imagine.
The low quality camera is worth it though when you consider how cheap this tablet is. 40K (or more) is the average price for a good tablet, so I believe Tecno-Mobile has done well to put this one at 20K thus making tablets affordable to a larger number of people.
“S9 will definitely become your best companion to keep pace with the world trend. Empowered with advanced hardware, S9 is to bring so much convinience and all others that will be definitely beyond your expectation. Come and start a fantastic journey with S9！”
