Cloudfone Epic 7.1, Epic 8.9 dual-OS tablets launched

First unveiled last month without much fanfare, the Cloudfone Epic 7.1 and Epic 8.9 have been officially launched. It seems the Philippines is getting its dual-boot tablets after all.

We previously expressed our doubts if ever the Cloudfone Epic 7.1 and Epic 8.9 tablets would actually hit the shelves, especially when Google and Microsoft don’t exactly like the idea of having their mobile operating systems running with each other in a single device. Cloudfone has a proven us wrong, and we’re excited to see these dual-booting tablets in action.
