So, which one do you want? I like ENGAGE because it's affordable with higher pixel per inch than successor ENGAGE 9.

ENGAGE 7HD will be coming this December (already on the market) and will cost less than P10,000. I estimate that it will not go higher than 9K.

The cheapest netbook in the market is around P10K (Neo BC2BL) running on Intel Atom N2100 1.6 Ghz with 320 GB HDD so, more expensive tablets will have a hard time competing against this cheaper netbooks.

The engage is pretty similar to the samsung galaxy tab 3 in terms of size and processor. What do you think about PPI? Is it a major decision factor for you?
