The Philippines proves to be a profitable market for Kata, as the Hong Kong-based manufacturer is releasing yet another device a few days from now: the Kata FishTab 3. It’s the third tablet for the company to be released in our country and touts a significant bump in terms of specs over its predecessors.

Just how better is the Kata FishTab 3 than the previous versions? To start with, its powerful quad-core Rockchip processor runs at a decent performance and efficiency, something that can’t normally be found in other budget-friendly tablets. Users can expect graphics rendering to go smoothly on the 7.9-inch IPS multi-touch display, with visuals able to remain their clarity and vividness even at extreme viewing angles.

Kata FishTab 3 Specs

  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 7.9-inch IPS touchscreen display (1024×768), ~162ppi
  • 1.8GHz quad-core Rockchip 3188 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • microSD expansion up to 64GB
  • 5-megapixel main camera, with autofocus
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • WiFi, 3G via adapter
  • Dimensions: 201.7 x 136.3 x 8.4 mm
  • Weight: 345g
  • Li-Po 4400mAh battery

Yet another attractive perk of the FishTab 3 is its back that’s polished with metallic silver. Again, one can’t easily find a similar design like this in other low-cost devices. The tablet’s light weight and build also make it quite comfortable to hold over extended periods of use. Moreover, some retailers like the Owtel Shop are bundling a leather case and screen protector when buyers purchase the tablet in any of their outlets. Other items included in the packaging are the microUSB cable, a USB power adapter, and the manual or quick guide pamphlet.


If you’re looking for any shortcoming in the Kata FishTab 3, know that the screen resolution uses the older 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the more popular widescreen formats. The pixel density is also far from Retina levels, which means text and images lose their smooth appearance as you look closer into the screen.

With an expected retail price of Php10,999, the Kata FishTab 3 will become available on August 18 and have its first public unboxing at SM Cyberzone Megamall on that day. You can expect fans of the ichthyo-inspired tablet to be there.

  1. It’s not worthy to buy this brand!!! Verrrryyy pooooorrr after sale service’

    Same problem as pinky’s post below.
    Battery problem, still within warranty pero nagbayad parin ako dun sa replacemnt ng warrnty! -un pa lang unfair na! Take note 1900 ang battery replacement!

    Binayaran ko na rin para maayos na. After that they said 14-working days ok na ung unit. Guess what, even after dozen of followup from us, its now almost 2 months na nasakanila ung unit namin…. Di pa rin nila ako mabigyan ng tamang date na pwede kong mapickup ung unit! Kada tawag ko,, parating nababago ung date ng pickup!

    Base sa mga nabasa ko, ganito tlga style nila. I hope turuan ng leksyon itong brand na ito.. Tutuloy tuloy ko itong pagcheck sa wall na ito until makuha ko tablet na pinagawa ko… For anyone who’s having the same exp, please contact me. Ireklamo natin to!
