We’ve seen custom user interfaces on Android phones before, but the W900 probably takes the cake when it comes to advanced value-added features in an affordable package. Of course, we’re talking about the recently released Cherry Mobile W900 – dubbed “The Dragon Phone”. It might have been called that due to the fact that it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 processor inside clocked at 1.2Ghz – a respectable mid-range speed for today’s demanding applications. You’ll also be getting a large 4.0” 800×480 display, 5MP camera, and the custom UI which includes a Task Killer, a custom Eco Mode, upgraded Camera modes, launcher tweaks, and some robust Music and Video players to boot. All of that for the entry-level price of PHP 9,999. That definitely sounds like a deal, doesn’t it? Well, we’ve got a review unit in our possession and we’re ready to put it through its paces. Right now though, you can check out our video unboxing just after the jump!
So there you have it guys! A 1.0+Ghz phone is finally available in the sub-10k price range. Of course, Cherry Mobile also offers a similar phone in the Cherry Mobile Magnum HD (currently priced at PHP 9,999), which we reviewed recently and came out impressed. The W900 takes a similar form factor with a less boxier design, improves the processor, adds a ton of custom UI features, and throws in an 8GB Micro SD to boot.
Stay tuned for a full review of the W900 in our website sometime soon, or you can head out to your nearest Cherry Mobile kiosks and stores and check out the phone for yourselves. At the price of PHP 9,999, you might just walk home with a new phone in hand.
