Maxwest expands its budget Android lineup with the new ORBIT TAB PHONE 9 slate. This affordable 9-inch tablet comes loaded with capabilities like dual SIM slots, GPS, dual cameras, and microSD expansion.

The ORBIT TAB PHONE 9 is built around a 9-inch TFT display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution. While no match for today's high-PPI panels, the screen size suits web browsing and video.

The capacitive touchscreen allows smooth pinch-to-zoom and swiping through the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Processing power comes courtesy of a dual-core chipset. The stock 512MB RAM limits extensive multitasking but handles everyday media enjoyment.

Storage is restricted to 4GB internally but users can augment this via the microSD card slot.

Even with aging internals, Android Jelly Bean enables a customizable experience unmatched by iOS. Personalize the ORBIT TAB PHONE 9 through downloaded apps, widgets and launchers from the Google Play Store.

Access productivity aids like Google Now and rich notifications.

The included rear camera captures casual snapshots and 720p video on the go. A front camera facilitates selfies and video chatting. Sadly, the lack of flash resigns the camera to daytime shots only.

Photos and videos transfer quickly via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Dual SIM card slots enable using separate lines for personal and business needs when mobile. Unfortunately, data speeds top out at pokey UMTS – no fast LTE here.

Connectivity rounds out with GPS, microUSB 2.0, and a headphone jack.

The lightweight build with curved edges enhances portability for use anywhere. Furnished in black, red or gray plastic, cost-cutting materials bring the low price.

Hop on Google Hangouts with friends, watch movies from Crackle, play games and more for affordable big-screen entertainment.

In summary, the ORBIT TAB PHONE 9 brings key features like dual SIMs, microSD expansion and ample display real estate to the budget tablet segment.
