Some of the devices Starmobile is launching May 29

Filipino tech player Starmobile is set to launch a lineup of new devices, including two 7-inch tablets, an entry-level smartphone, and its first quad-core handsets.

We only spent a few minutes with the gadgets that's why we weren't able to take videos of them. Rest assured that you'll see them in action sooncomplete with final prices, specs, and our initial impressionsso watch for the clips.
But wait, there's more. Excitement is mounting for a quad-core, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean device with 18- and 8-megapixel rear and front cameras and pixel density approaching Retina display quality.
Starmobile hasn’t scheduled its launch yet, though, so you can still cross your fingers that it won’t come with a high price tag. (By Alora Uy Guerrero, via Unbox podcast/NMF Network)
