Are you on the market for a tablet, but is cash-strapped at the moment? What if I tell you that you can buy a Jelly Bean-packing 7inch Android tablet, from Cherry Mobile, for P2,999? Unbelievable? Believe it.
With the patriotic objective of bringing quality technology to the masses, Cherry Mobile recently introduced the Fusion Air, its latest budget tablet that packs a pretty impressive spec sheet considering its price tag. See the spec summary below:
1GHZ Single-core BoxChip A13 CPUMali-400 GPU Chipset
7inch, five-point multitouch screen, 800×480 resolution, 133ppi
512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD slot of up to 32GB capacity
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box
VGA front-facing camera, no rear camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2,200mAh Li-Ion battery
Clearly, the Fusion Air is not designed to be a computing powerhouse, but rather, a tablet that is suited for basic needs such as casual web surfing, watching YouTube videos, or reading ebooks. I doubt that playing the latest HD games will be possible with the device, although simple ones such as Candy Crush Saga should be just fine. Good thing the tablet packs Jelly Bean though, as this should help the hardware in improving the overall usability of the device.
If you ask me, however, if you have an extra P1,000, I believe the Fusion Bolt is a better steal than this one…
The Cherry Mobile Fusion Air should be available in the next few weeks, although knowing Cherry Mobile’s history, looking for available ones in stock should post one hell of a problem.
