Its been a while since Kata Philippines released a tablet. Sure there’s the Kata T Mini 2 we reviewed months ago but it feels more like a very large smartphone than a tablet. Then here comes the Kata T4, the company’s latest tablet offering. It has an 8-inch display making it a certified tablet. Our good friends from Kata Philippines has sent us a review unit. Let’s unbox it and discover our first 24 hours using it.

Taking the Kata T4 out of the box and looking for the first time, there’s no denying where Kata got their inspiration from. But the device is just stunning. The chassis is made from metal but maintains a sleek and thin profile. Lastly, we do love having a Kata branding being displayed proudly just below the screen.
Now let’s check the ports and buttons. Left – nothing, Right – power and volume buttons, top – a cover when opened will reveal the two SIM card slots and microSD card slot and 3.5mm headset jack, bottom – speaker grills and USB charging port, Back – Kata logo and 8 megapixel front facing camera. Front – 7.95-inch display, sensors, earpiece (the tablet has phone capabilities) and 5 megapixel front camera.
Compared to previous tablet released by the company, the display has been slightly upgraded with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels which is now considered HD. For the past 24 hours, we’ve just used the tablet mainly for web browsing, reading blogs and watching You Tube videos. The T4 handled all tasks thrown at it with no hiccups.
We will be putting it through more tests as we review the tablet. Our full review will be out in two weeks.
