Cherry Mobile Fusion Wave Price Php 7,499 : 8-inch Android Tablet, Powered by Quad Core Samsung Exynos Chipset!

Local electronics giant Cherry Mobile is finally ready to release several powerhouse yet affordable Android smartphones and tablets as part of its JuneTastic gadget promo.

All of their upcoming devices are pretty interesting but the one that immediately caught my attention is their new 8-inch Android slate, Cherry Mobile Fusion Wave.

On the outside, the tablet looks almost the same as Cherry Mobile's previous releases in this category. But looking at its specs sheet, you'll see that one feature that quite simply makes it a cut above the rest. Although the device runs a slightly outdated version of the Android operating system, it is nonetheless powered by a Quad Core 1.4 GHz Exynos chipset by Samsung, which I believe is similar to the Exynos 4412 Quad processor running Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone. This makes Cherry Mobile Fusion Wave the first tablet by a local player to run on a chip made by the Korean company.

As per internal testing, Cherry Mobile Fusion Wave got an Antutu Benchmark Test Score of 14,865, which is more or less similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone.

Other technical specifications include an 8-inch Capacitive Screen, 8 GB of internal storage, 1 GB of RAM, Mali-400 GPU, 2 MegaPixel front-facing camera and another 2MP snapper at the back, HDMI port, USB On-The-Go, 5,100 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity support.

Cherry Mobile Fusion Wave - with official suggested retail price of just Php 7,499 - will be available at all Cherry Mobile stores and authorized retailers nationwide within this month. At that amount, I think it's already very sulit but it could been even more enticing had it come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS right out of the box.
