Anyone who says that all Cherry Mobile products are too low-end or too 'pang-masa' is either terribly old-fashioned, sadly delusional or is plain a bigot...
Because if the outstanding quality and stunning looks of new Cherry Mobile devices unveiled in tonight's CM event at the A-Venue were any indication of where the company intends to take this brand, then bigger multinational companies competing with it better start really, really shaping up.
Take for example, the incredibly gorgeous Cherry Mobile Superion Tablet clad in aluminum --
Donning a price tag of only Php 19,990, Cherry Mobile Superion could very well give the Php30k+ Samsung Galaxy Tab a run for its money.
For less than Php 20,000, you can own an extremely well-constructed tablet that runs Android 2.2 Froyo with its powerful Qualcomm MSM 7227 600 Mhz processor and 512 MB of ROM. It has a 7" WVGA glass capacitive touchscreen that supports multi-touch gestures, a microSD card slot for expanding the memory and two cameras; one in front and another 3 MegaPixel shooter at the back. The device supports practically all connectivity options you'll need in this day and age, including Wifi, 3G HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, Bluetooth, MicroUSB and A-GPS. But the coolest part? This tablet also works as a phone!
I took a video of Superion in action earlier. I'll just upload it on Youtube and update this post with the clip.
I hope to have an immersive experience with this tablet so I can give it the comprehensive review that it definitely deserves.
