The Kata M1 is back to its original selling price of P11,999 starting May 11, 2014 and is now available for purchase at any Kata Store and Kata kiosk branches.

The Kata M1 launch is part of a string of engagements Kata has planned for the year. They already started with the relaunch of Android phones Kata Venus 3 and Kata i3, and Android tablet Kata FishTab 3.  I’m not taking back what I said about the Venus 3 and i3, which also applies to the Kata M1: I wish local manufacturers built their phones like Kata did. Solid and sturdy.
