Starmobile, one of the players in the local phone industry, has set its eyes on the Android platform and has decided to release its very own game maker, the Starmobile Astra.
The Starmobile Astra is an Android 4.0 ICS device that sports a 4.3-inch display and a 1GHz dual-core processor. Not only that, it also has a mobile TV feature. The Astra is a great contender for this year end's battle of the smartphones. For more details, check out our specs sheet below.

The Starmobile Astra would be released during the first week of November in all Starmobile stores and kiosks nationwide. It would sell for an amazing price of PHP 6,990.00.
While there's already stiff competition out there in the market, we're sure that the Starmobile Astra would be one of the sellers this coming Christmas. Let's hope that Starmobile would notice us and give us a unit for review so we can definitively say that this device is the bomb.
