Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2 Price Php 4,999 : Android Jelly Bean Tablet with Phone and TV Functionality

It's not everyday that we see a tablet that works as a phone, has TV functionality, and supports 3G mobile connectivity all at the same time. And Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2, the local electronics giant's latest slate offering, is exactly that.

Donning an SRP of Php 4,999, Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2 could very well be the "most sulit" device in the company's current product line-up -- and that's saying a lot considering the number of stellar models in CM's keep. I said that on the merit of the fact that the tablet is practically three devices rolled into one.

Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2, as a tablet, comes with rather decent technical specifications. It sports a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 4GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card slot, VGA video recorder, a 2 MegaPixel main camera, and a secondary one in front with VGA resolution. As for connectivity, the tablet supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G -- allowing you to stay connected anywhere you go. In terms of internal specs, the downsides would have to be the mere 512 MB of RAM, the rather small 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, and the 1 GHz Dual Core processor (if only because CM has already churned out a budget Quad Core tablet) running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Nonetheless, when you consider how low the SRP of the device is, you'd really think twice about making a fuss about its limitations.

On top of being a slate, Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2 also works a smartphone allowing you to make calls and send text messages. And what's even cooler is that it's a Dual SIM Dual Standby device, which means that you can use it stay connected on two networks at the same time.

Perhaps the one thing that sets this tablet apart from its main competitors is that it comes with TV functionality. Its Analog TV feature lets you watch all free TV channels in the Philippines including ABS-CBN, GMA7, and TV5 among others. A lot of Pinoys are fond of watching teleseryes, primetime and late night news programs, reality shows, and singing contests on television so I'm sure that this functionality will make it a winner in its category.

Several weeks back, Starmobile wowed the media and the tech blogging community by introducing more than a handful of incredible Android slates. It was a gutsy move that obviously caught the attention of its feistiest rivals in the local devices game. I think that via Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2 (as well as the many other upcoming tablets from Cherry Mobile this year), the company wants to make it clear that CM is likewise in it to win it and is not to be underestimated in this product echelon as in others.
