Admittedly, prices of Android phones have never been lower these days – with a lot of competition vying for the PHP 6,000 mark with various types of entry-level devices. Samsung, Alcatel, Lenovo Mobile, LG, and even Cherry Mobile are some of the manufacturers that all have offerings that fall under the category – typically with small, low res screens that only go up to 3.2” 320×480; and processors that generally lie in the 600-800Mhz mark. Which is why this new Cherry Mobile sale has gotten us to stand up and take notice. Cherry Mobile, on its Third Year Anniversary, is going to offer one of their flagship Android phones for that exact same price – for one day only. Tomorrow, on August 15, 2012, on all Cherry Mobile Kiosks and Concept Stores nationwide, the W900 Dragon Phone is going to be on sale for only PHP 5,999.
The Cherry Mobile W900
Of course, we’re no stranger to the W900. In fact, it’s the Philippine mobile company’s newest Android phone release, having only been in the market for three months now. We’ve featured it quite a bit too. Having not one, but two videos about it – first a preview interview, and the other a full unboxing. While we haven’t yet polished out our entire review for the device, (which we hope we can finish off tomorrow,) we’re confident that our previous videos can tell you a great deal about the device. Simply put though, the Cherry Mobile W900 is a midrange device that rocks some good specs for the price. You’re getting a 1.2Ghz processor, 4.0” 800×480 screen, 5MP Camera, Front facing camera, and the usual Android features like WiFi, Bluetooth, and the like. The so-called Dragon Phone also comes with a customized UI that brings in some nifty tweaks like the Task Killer, Media Popup, and Eco Button. When it launched, the Android 2.3 phone was selling for PHP 9,999 – a price we already liked for its specs.
This has got to be the best deal on an Android phone that we’ve ever seen
But now, it will all be selling for PHP 5,999 for one day only tomorrow. (August 15, 2012) And we can’t stress it enough that this has got to be the best deal on an Android phone that we’ve ever seen. For the price of a Samsung Galaxy Y or any of the other popular PHP 6k droids, you’re getting a Ghz+ processor, large 4” screen, and a 800×480 resolution to boot. Sure, it doesn’t have two SIM slots, but if you have a decent Android phone you probably wouldn’t even notice. This is an opportunity that you shouldn’t pass up.
So if you’re lucky enough to be looking for that perfect budget Android that packs a great screen and powerful processor, head out tomorrow to any Cherry Mobile Kiosk and/or Concept Store and line up for a W900. Having tried the device for ourselves we guarantee you’ll be satisfied with it. Just make sure to line up early and enjoy your new phone!
